EchoRange™ Mini Altimeter Kit – Anticipated release in Spring 2019

AIRMAR's EchoRange™ Mini was designed for use as an altimeter on AUV’s and ROV’s. The kit includes a standalone, compact transceiver board that mounts on the electronics chassis and a depth tolerant transducer that is rated to 1,000m

  • Designed for AUV's and ROV's
  • Ultra Compact Design
  • Minimal Power Consumption
  • 100% Made in the U.S.A
  • NMEA 0183 Protocol

ACCURACY (Based on tank testing)
Actual Reported Difference %
3.05m 3.07m +0.02m 99.33%
4.57m 4.59m +0.02m 99.56%
5.79m 5.82m +0.03m 99.48%

Note: A minimum test tank of 50 galllons is recommended as smaller tanks may induce reverberation and interfere with measurements.
