The Tritech MiniKing Sonar is a new concept in high performance products. This very small sonar is available in several configurations enabling it to be fitted to the smallest of ROVs or other underwater carriers. The sonar is controlled by a customer supplied PC or Laptop.
The MiniKing incorporates the very latest electronics and many of the software features normally associated with full sized commercial systems. Tritech believe that although MiniKing is small in both size and cost it should offer the full range of functionality expected from a professional product. The system benefits from the experience gained from Tritech’s position as market leader in the supply of small commercial and military sonars.
A version of the MiniKing is also available with an auxiliary port, which enables the user to network a RS232 device. This may be a Tritech altimeter, for example, or a third party sensor. The data output can be displayed alongside the sonar data via the specially designed software.
Fully serviceable and extremely reliable, the MiniKing is the most rugged compact sonar in our range.
