Simrad Debuts BSM-3 Broadband Sounder
Simrad Yachting, a designer and manufacturer of marine navigation, autopilot, radar, communications and fishfinding systems, announced today its next-generation sonar system, the Simrad BSM-3 Broadband Sounder with CHIRP (Compressed High-Intensity Radar Pulse). Capable of reaching depths of 10,000 feet (3,000 meters), the BSM-3 has been engineered to provide unparalleled industry-leading target separation, clarity and resolution throughout the water column to locate fish both near shore and offshore, its manufacturer said.
Designed for recreational boaters and commercial fisherman , the Simrad BSM-3 is suitable for use with the Simrad NS Series including the new NSS evo2 and NSO evo2 systems. The BSM-3 is compatible with the range of Airmar transducers and is optimized for the new Airmar Wide-angle CHIRP transducer series, which provide more coverage and a 25-degree beam angle across the entire frequency range.
Features such as bottom color tracking and easy split zoom controls, as well as a selection of scroll speeds and transmit power settings set the brand’s sonar systems well above the competition. Encased in aluminum housing with a waterproof access cover and easy-to-connect transducer plugs, the BSM-3 is easy to install. Users run cables and then connect them to their Simrad NS-Series multifunction device.
The Simrad BSM-3 Broadband Sounder with CHIRP can be purchased from authorized Simrad Yachting dealers and distributors throughout the United States and Canada for a suggested retail price of $1,999.
