BioSonics Scientific Echosounders
DT-X Extreme - Portable Autonomous Echosounder
BioSonics DT-X Extreme is an innovative, versatile echosounder system that expands your opportunities for data collection. The DTX Extreme works as a portable system for mobile surveys, or as an autonomous data logger for long-term, fixed station monitoring applications.
For autonomous data collection, temporarily connect your laptop/PC to program data collection parameters and desired duty cycle, then disconnect your computer and walk away. The DT-X Extreme will continue to ping and log data for up to one month.
Built TOUGH for extended outdoor deployments, with splash-proof construction throughout, the DT-X Extreme comes with stainless connectors on all ports, cables, and connectors.
Unique features include:
Autonomous mode with wake/sleep function
- Internal storage for 30-days data logging
Built in DGPS, WiFi router, and DC voltmeter
Multi-channel, multi-frequency capabilities
Digital transducers for superior data quality
Extremely low side lobe transducers (~ -30dB)
DT-X Extreme Software and Applications
Fish population/stock assessment
Determine fish location, distribution, quantity, size, behavior, and biomass. Advanced analysis provides details on individual fish behavior and movement.
Substrate classification / bottom typing
Classify bottom substrates such as rock,
sand, or mud. Used in both freshwater
and marine environments over a wide range of bottom types.
Mapping Aquatic Vegetation
Assess and map submerged aquatic vegetation. Measure plant height and % cover (density) to calculate total biovolume.
