DEPTH AND TEMPERATURE SENSORS TD
A depth sensor does just what it says on the label, and these do so much more
It’s primary function is to measure the depth of the gear relative to the surface, while also being able to relay information about the speed of the gear through the water as the gear is lifted or allowed to sink. Combined with the sensor’s temperature function, this provides a range of data that gives the skipper the information needed to maintain.
The gear depth at its optimum level for the preferred conditions for particular species. We see the depth/temperature sensor as a time-saving tool that cuts down on time wasted with the gear at the wrong location.
It has a typical battery life of between 450 and 540 hours that can be extended depending on the power settings used. Depth and temperature information can be displayed as text, gauges or line graph.
