500 Series

Acoustic Release beacons provide the means by which scientific, survey or operational equipment can be deployed or relaibly retrieved from its anchored seabed mooring. Standard products and customised versions are available to meet specific underwater release, command or control challenges.

The 500 Series models are compatible with Easytrak (Range/Bearing/Status Telemetry/Release), Applied Acoustics’ PAM 2520 (Range/Status/Telemetry/Release) and other MF USBL systems (Range/Bearing). They also operate as standard acoustic positioning beacons compatible with almost all industry standard tracking systems.

Field adjustable internal frequency and release identities, optional increased depth ratings, higher source levels, longer life and higher load versions available.
