icListen Smart Hydrophone -Overview
A hydrophone is an underwater microphone that converts sound energy to electrical energy. When connected to an amplifier and speaker it lets us hear sounds in the water. This is an analog hydrophone.
Digital hydrophones eliminate the need to add pre-amplifiers, filters and digitizers into the instrument, replacing the output voltage with a binary stream.
The icListen is an all-in-one instrument small enough to fit in your hand, and smart enough to log calibrated waveforms, spectral or event data in one standard format. Use the icListen Smart Hydrophone as a digital hydrophone, acoustic data logger, or both at once.
The icListen is a reliable, accurate hydrophone that records & outputs sound data in real units. It’s best-in-class signal performance lets you acquire hard to detect data accurately and cost effectively. The icListen detects real-time events and can log or transmit just the event data in real-time. Use icListen’s standard Ethernet link, or communicate over the slower serial link for radio channels or long cable runs.
