Simrad BSM-2 Broadband hits Australia

THE Simrad BSM-2 Broadband Sounder module is now available in Australia.

Designed with serious sportfishing anglers in mind, Simrad says its new sonar module delivers five times greater target resolution than comparable offshore performance sounders, with readings possible for depths greater than 3000m (10,000ft).

Further developing the groundbreaking BSM-1 Sounder technology, the Simrad BSM-2 provides enhanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP), similar to the BR24 solid-state radar, and is reportedly the first sonar to incorporate Frequency Sweeping Pulse Compression technology – also known as CHIRP – in a recreational application.

Simrad says the BSM-2 coupled with the new Airmar Broadband transducer lineup, provides digitally-purified, crystal-clear images of individual fish markings and clear separation of fish from other targets, structure, thermoclines and the bottom – in both shallow and ultra-deep water.

Housed in a die-cast aluminum waterproof black box, the BSM-2 is easy-to-install, mounts anywhere and is plug-and-play compatible with NSE/NSO/NSS multifunction systems via high-speed Ethernet connection. Compatible with 12V or 24V DC power systems, the module is water-resistant to the IPx6 standard and is covered by a two-year warranty.

RRP for the Simrad BSM-2 module is $3735.
