Simrad PX Multi Sensor

The Simrad PX Multi Sensor is an innovative multifunction sensor for the Simrad PI catch monitoring systems.

The Simrad PX Multi Sensor can be programmed to suite your need at the time of use, at no cost. The PX Multi Sensor can replace several traditional PI or PS sensors. All is needed is small computer, the free application from Simrad and a dedicated programming cable.

The PX Multi Sensor provides any combination of two reading. It can be used to measure the following:
- Pitch
- Roll
- Spread
- Height
- Depth
- Geometry.

It all depends on the type of PX Multi Sensor you have chosen.

The Simrad PX Multi Sensor is equipped with the latest battery technology. By means of a custom made Li-Ion battery and a new charger, the PX Multi Sensor offers significantly longer operation when compared with previous generation Simrad sensors.

The PX Multi Sensor is available in two different types:
- Down and Side (DS)
- Down and Front (DF)

The names indicate the physical location of the application transducers. Both sensor types hold the forward looking transducer to provide the communication with the PI system onboard.

Down and Side

On the Down and Side (DS) sensor, the transducers point sideways and downwards.

The basic version of the Down and Side (DS) PX Multi Sensor offers any two combinations of he following measurements
- Spread (mounted on the port door)
- Height
- Roll
- Pitch
- Remote for Spread (mounted on the starboard door)

By means of the PX configuration application, you can easily set up the sensor to provide whatever two measurements you need. The sensor configuration can be changed at any time as the PX configurator can be provided with the system.

Example Configurations:

Spread and Height, pitch or roll
You can place a DS sensor on the port door to measure the distance between two doors. At the same time, the sensor will also provide you with the height over the seabed. A DS sensor on the starboard door will act as a Remote sensor for the spread measurement. It will also provide you with a height, pitch or roll measurement.

Pitch and Roll
You can place a DS sensor on the starboard or port trawl door to measure both the pitch and roll movements of the door.

Height and Pitch
You can place a DS sensor on a trawl door to measure its pitch movements. At the same time, the sensor will also provide you with height over the seabed.

Down and Front

On the Down and Front (DF) sensor, the transducers point forward and downwards.

The basic version of the Down and Front (DF) PX Multi Sensor offers any two combinations of the following measurements:
- Spread (mounted on the port door)
- Height
- Roll
- Pitch
- Geometry (mounted on the footrope or head rope)
- Remote for Geometry ( mounted on the starboard and port doors)
- Remote for Spread (mounted on the starboard door)

The PX Configurator again means that you can change the sensors to the configuration you need for that trip.

Example configurations

Pitch and Height
You can place a DF sensor on a trawl door to measure its pitch movements. At the same time, the sensor will also provide you with the height over the seabed.

Pitch and Roll
You can place a DF sensor on the starboard or port trawl door to measure both the pitch and roll movements of the door.

Geometry
You can place a DF sensor on the headrope to work with two other sensors on the trawl doors. These will measure the geometry.
