Simrad launches BSM-3 Broadband

Simrad Yachting has announced the release of its next-generation sonar system, the Simrad BSM-3 Broadband Sounder with CHIRP (Compressed High-Intensity Radar Pulse). The Simrad BSM-3 is the most advanced Simrad Broadband Sounder on the market.

Capable of reaching depths of 10,000 feet (3,000 metres), the BSM-3 has been engineered to provide incredible target separation, clarity and resolution throughout the water column to locate fish both near shore and offshore.

The Simrad BSM-3 is optimised for use with the Simrad NS Series including the new NSS evo2 and NSO evo2 systems, the latest and best multifunction devices available from the brand. The BSM-3 is compatible with the range of Airmar transducers and is optimised for the new Airmar Wide-angle CHIRP transducer series, which provide more coverage and a 25-degree beam angle across the entire frequency range.

Easy-to-use features such as bottom colour tracking and easy split zoom controls, as well as a selection of scroll speeds and transmit power settings set the brand’s sonar systems apart from the competition. Encased in a rugged aluminium housing with a waterproof access cover and easy-to-connect transducer plugs, the BSM-3 is easy to install. Users simply run cables and then connect them to their Simrad NS-Series multifunction device.

The Simrad BSM-3 Performance CHIRP Broadband Echosounder with CHIRP can be purchased from authorised Simrad Yachting dealers and distributors throughout the APAC region. Australian RRP is set at $2499.00 with New Zealand RRP at $3099.00. Stock will be available in Q3 of 2014.
