In what sea conditions will the FarSounder-500 and FarSounder-1000 sonar work?
The current products have been designed to operate even under moderate sea conditions. Of course, in larger wave environments, smaller surface targets will be lost in the surface clutter. LIKE ANY MARINE ELECTRONICS SENSOR, the systems will not function well under the most extreme conditions. Quantitative results depend upon many factors including: hull mounting method, sea state, vessel speed, water temperature, wind speed, etc. Generally, the deeper the Transducer Module is installed, the better the system operates in higher sea states.
