World first Broadband searchlight sonar Added motion sensor function and newly added short stroke model.


Advanced Broadband Technology

KDS-6000BB is world first Broadband searchlight sonar. With the broadband transducer equipped as standard, the most suitable output frequency can be selected in 0.1 kHz step depending on the fishing method and the target species from closer range to longer range.
Flexible frequency selection enables user to tune outside of other vessel interference frequency, providing much cleaner image.

Digital signal processing enables high resolution images

Both of high resolution in closer range and noise reduction performance in longer are materialized at high level with newly-developed digital signal processing, KDP-V (Koden Digital Processing series V).

High scan speed for fast fish detection

Scanning speed is remarkably increased by adding 15°and 20° in scanning sector angle steps. lt can detect surrounding fish schools quickly.

Four different presentation modes available for various fishing scenes

・Sonar mode is useful for searching around the ship.

・Off-center mode helps to show more information of ahead.

・Echo sounder mode for displaying image like fishfinder is also available.

・Bottom scan mode can display reflected echoes from underwater and seabed in a cross selection image.

User friendly operation with Conditional Memory keys

Six of CM(Condition Memory) keys offer the user to preset all the current settings and recall them instantly. It is like six sonars in one unit.

Black Box type

KDS-6000BB comes in black box. The user can select a monitor from the market or the optional 17/19 inch LCD monitor.

Space-saving Hull unit

Short stroke Hull unit available for small space.

Motion sensor

The stabilizer function reduces the disturbance of sonar display caused by the pitch and roll of the vessel. (For AS model)
