Smart Switch

Smart Switch


The Smart Switch is an ideal solution for marine construction tasks where the real-time 3D volumetric sonar is being repeatedly submerged and removed from the water.


The Smart Switch allows the operator to confidently continue operations, safe in the knowledge that the risk of inadvertent sonar damage has been minimized.

The Smart Switch has a sensor which detects when the system is not submerged and will turn off acoustic transmissions, reducing power consumption to a minimum. In this state, the real-time 3D volumetric sonar does not transmit and so avoids damage to the transmitter which can result from prolonged operation out of the water. Additionally, the sonar generates minimal heat and so can remain in the air for much longer periods without triggering the thermal cut-off switch.

Once the Smart Switch detects that it has re-entered the water, it restores the real-time 3D volumetric sonar to its previous state and starts acquiring data immediately.

The Smart Switch is encapsulated in a short cable length, designed to fit inline between the existing sonar cable and the sonar itself, allowing flexible positioning of the water sensor for shallow submersions.

The Smart Switch works with any model of our real-time 3D volumetric sonars and is quick and simple to install.

*A firmware upgrade of the Echoscope® sonar may be required
