Ping2 Sonar Altimeter and Echosounder

£370.00 Excl. VAT

The Ping2 sonar is a single-beam echosounder that measures distances up to 100 meters underwater. With a 25 degree beam width, 300 meter depth rating, and an open-source software interface it is a powerful tool for marine robotics.

The Ping2 can be connected directly to BlueROV2s that are equipped with a Navigator Flight Controller, no need for an adapter. If you want to connect it to a BlueROV2 equipped with a Pixhawk or to a computer via USB, you will need a BLUART USB to Serial and RS485 Adapter along with a micro-USB cable.

Product Description

This is the updated version of the original Ping sonar, the Ping2 has an increased range to 100 meters and an improved physical design!

The Ping2 sonar is a multipurpose single-beam echosounder. It can be used as an altimeter for the BlueROV2 ROVs and AUVs, for bathymetry work aboard a USV such as the BlueBoat, as an obstacle avoidance sonar, and other underwater distance measurement applications. The Ping2 has a compact form factor and 300 meter depth rating with an open-source user interface and Arduino, C++, and Python development libraries to create a powerful new tool for marine robotics!

The Pings uses a 115 kHz transducer frequency, away from those used on most boat echosounders to avoid interference. It has a measurement range of 100 meters (328 feet) and a measurement beamwidth of 25 degrees, perfect for applications on a rocking boat or for obstacle avoidance. An advanced bottom-tracking algorithm runs on the device to determine the distance to the seafloor, even in complicated situations with multiple echoes.
