The F3 is a multibeam sounder designed around the fully digital DRX transceiver. It features a low power processor DRX-32, with a high frequency transducer WMB-160 to give you a maximum depth of 400m. This solid-state processor (which would be called a supercomputer in the gaming world) is a robust hardware platform with cutting-edge innovation. It’s accurate, versatile, easy-to-use and scalable to suit your exact needs.

With wideband CHIRP technology and multibeam, you can scan up to a 120 degrees (up to 3.5 times depth) swathe port-to-starboard for a complete picture of seafloor bathymetry giving you unprecedented clarity.
