Kongsberg EM2040 Portable

The EM 2040P is a shallow water multibeam echo sounder based on the KONGSBERG EM2040 technology.

It is highly portable, and has been designed for easy transport and quick deployment on any vessel, while offering survey performance up to and exceeding the IHO-S44 special order and the more stringent LINZ specification.

It is an ideal for any application, from high resolution mapping and inspection to shallow water surveys.

The EM 2040P is highly portable; the sonar head measures 560 x 300 x 166 mm and weighs 19.5 kg.

Features

  • Very high resolution

  • Short pulse lengths and large bandwidth
  • FM chirp
  • Roll, pitch and yaw stabilisation
  • Nearfield focussing on both transmit and receive
  • Water column data
  • Seabed image
  • Depth rated to 30m
  • Easy to install

High resolution Data and Range Capability

Due to the large operating bandwidth available the system has an output sample rate of more than 60 kHz, as such the system operates effectively with very short pulse lengths.

By utilising both CW and FM chirp pulses, the system can achieve a much longer range capability whilst maintaining high resolution. Due to a highly sophisticated beam-former, the system produces the cleanest real-time data of any multibeam available today; almost no data processing is necessary.
