EM 2040C (Compact) Multibeam Echosounder

Image acquired using the EM2040C

The EM 2040C is a shallow water multibeam echosounder based on the EM 2040 technology, an ideal tool for any high resolution mapping and inspection applications.

The receiver and transmitter are integrated in a common sonar head, with the same dimensions as the old EM 3002. The system fulfills and even surpasses the IHO-S44 special order and the more stringent LINZ specification
