JW Fishers UA-2 Underwater Altimeter
The JW FIshers UA-2 underwater altimeter is a low cost precision underwater altimeter. Avoid costly accidents by knowing the precise distance between the towed body and the ocean bottom. This model will work with the Pulse 10, Pulse 12, Proton 4, TOV-1, DV-1 and other equipment.
Accurate Depth Readings
The JW Fishers UA-2 underwater altimeter adds a new and needed dimension to the effectiveness and accuracy of underwater searches and surveys. The UA-2 provides a cost effective method for measuring the distance between a towed body and the ocean floor. The altimeter allows underwater detection and survey equipment to be held at precise altitudes above the bottom. With the altimeter mounted on your search equipment, targets are not missed as a result of equipment being towed too high off the bottom or equipment being damaged from towing too close to the bottom.
Avoid Unnecessary Accidents
No longer is it necessary to integrate chart information, cable lengths, and towing speed to calculate the distance between the towed body and the bottom. The UA-2 gives an accurate measurement of the actual distance on a digital LCD display. The distance reading is updated 3 times a second. The large LCD readout shows depth in 1 foot increments from 1 to 199 feet. A switch allows distance to be displayed in meters or feet.
Audible Alarm Settings
The UA-2 altimeter also has an adjustable audio alarm which alerts the operator if the equipment is towed below a preset distance. Features a large, easy to read LCD display, audio alarm, and adaptability to any towed body.
A Full Featured Underwater Altimeter
The UA-2 underwater altimeter system includes a transducer for the tow body, a 150 foot tow cable, and the topside control unit. The system is powered by a 12 volt battery. Options for the system are cable lengths up to 1000 feet, and an output to a computer.
