|Definition||The 4200 Series is a versatile side scan sonar system that can be configured for almost any survey application from shallow to deep water operations. The 4200 utilizes EdgeTechs Full Spectrum CHIRP technology to provide crisp, high resolution imagery at ranges 20-30% greater than non-CHIRP systems. A 4200 system comes with a choice of a dual simultaneous frequency towfish available in either a stainless steel or lightweight aluminium housing depending on operational requirements. Customers can also choose between a rack mount or portable topside processor or a digital link to interface to 3rd party topsides and software. One of the unique features of the 4200 is the optional Multi-Pulse (MP) technology, which places two sound pulses in the water rather than one pulse like conventional side scan sonar systems. This allows the 4200 to be towed at speeds of up to 10 knots while still maintaining 100% bottom coverage. In addition, the MP technology will provide twice the resolution when operating at normal tow speeds, thus allowing for better target detection and classification ability. Frequency = Choice of either 100/400, 300/600 or 300/900 kHz dual simultaneous; Operating Range (meters/side) = 100 kHz: 500m, 300 kHz: 230m, 400 kHz: 150m, 600 kHz: 120m, 900 kHz: 75m; The stainless steel housing is depth rated to 2000 m, and the aluminium housing is depth rated to 500 m.|
