Subject: WESMAR TCS785 Trawl Sonar
The TCS785 is three sonars in one: forward scan, net profile, and
The SMART sleds are available in two profiler frequencies, 180 kHz and 300
kHz. The lower the frequency, the longer the range.
The TCS785-300 kHz orange sled has a higher frequency profiler with high-
resolution designed for smaller nets. At 300 kHz, the footrope/bottom relation
can be viewed in greater detail.
The TCS785-180 kHz green sled with a 180 kHz profiler is designed for larger
nets with large vertical and horizontal openings.
More Information Means Increased Efficiency
The captain receives a wealth of information from WESMAR's trawl sonars.
This information enables them to increase catching efficiency through shorter
tows and reduced fuel consumption. Gear damage is also reduced by avoiding
rough bottom and overfilling of the net.
The TCS785 trawl sonar is a "third wire" system that combines forward looking
and profiling in one headrope unit. Its split screen feature allows measurement
of the net opening, profile of fishing circle, door spread, and other gear
geometry. The pressure sensor continuously monitors depth of headrope
making it possible to align the net and fish as they pass under the vessel.
Built rugged, yet lightweight, the TCS785 sled, when submerged, adds only 10
kg (21 lbs.) to the headrope.
-Depth sounder shows vertical net opening, footrope, and bottom
-Data output connects to compatible video sounders to view depth line/net
position across the screen
-Emits audible signal for triggered catch sensors and starts the timer visible on
-Easily obtain net opening dimensions using your cursors
-Forward Scan: Lets you view the doors forward of the net as well as schools of
fish entering the net
-Net Profile: View 360 degrees or smaller sectors. Keep watch as the footrope
tends the bottom or net. Monitor fish as they enter, go over, or under the net. ---
Watch the net change shape with adjustments and cross currents effects
.Downsounder: A full screen downsounder helping ensure that no fish go
.Split Screen: Downsounder over net profile. Two transducers operate
simultaneously for a double view. Downsounder monitors the footrope and
bottom and marks fish in center. Profile transducer scans the net opening in
high-resolution. Plus, you can make sure fish are not passing under the net by
using the 'zoom-window' feature
.Water Temperature and Depth: Sensors within the sled give you accurate
information at the headrope
