Product Name:Signature250
Description:The Signature250 is an ideal, cost-efficient instrument for users looking for long range, but without the need for the full 1000 meter range of its big brother – the Signature55. The aptly named Signature250 has a frequency of 250 kHz with a profiling range of 200 meters. It is capable of measuring waves and ice from 150 meters depth. This 250 kHz frequency, true broadband instrument brings you a host of features and benefits carefully developed around the needs of the scientists and engineers working both within academia and in the offshore industry.
