Lowrance, a world-leader in marine electronics innovation, has raised the bar in fish-finding technology with the introduction of its next-generation SONAR, the Broadband Sounder-1.
Based on the high-speed, Lowrance Ethernet network, the new Broadband Sounder-1 delivers unprecedented echo clarity and the highest underwater definition ever achieved. The module digitally enhances and separates fish, structures, thermoclines and the bottom composition, while eliminating surface and turbulent water clutter to better mark targets.
“When you see what Lowrance Broadband Sounder technology can do, you won’t believe your eyes,” said Gordon Sprouse, Director of Marketing at Lowrance. “From shallow-water conditions to extreme ocean depths, the results are quite amazing.”
An advanced plug-and-play Ethernet module, the Broadband Sounder-1 sits between the transducer and the display. When fitted in conjunction with the Navico Expansion Port-1 network switch the unit can be shared by up to four compatible Lowrance display devices (including 2007 GlobalMap units), via the Lowrance Ethernet network.
The module is compatible with all Lowrance 2007 models with 5” and larger colour displays and a 5-pin yellow Ethernet connector. The Broadband Sounder-1 works with all compatible Lowrance transducers – Skimmer®, pod, shoot- or bolt-through hull – and accommodates all transducer frequency ranges. The enhanced digital Broadband Sounder-1 features a nominal output power of 250-watts peak-to-peak (31-watts RMS), with an analogue output power equivalent of 30,000-watts peak-to-peak (3,750-watts RMS).
