Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
With patented technology and award winning design, Simrad allows you to monitor if your net is damaged. The Rip sensor is identical to the Catch sensor, and can thus be regarded as a second application for the Catch sensor.
The Rip sensor will let you know immediately if your net is torn apart.
Place the sensor on the trawl belly behind the footrope, and use it to detect if the trawl is torn or in any other ways damaged by rocks or other roughness on the bottom. If this is detected immediately you can adjust the gear to minimise the damage.
