Underwater Vision – The CP100 network sonar module brings CHIRP DownVision technology to Raymarine’s multifunction displays. CP100’s CHIRP DownVision delivers a photo like view of the world beneath your boat, allowing you to image bottom structure with amazing detail and target fish simultaneously.
Unlike conventional imaging sonars that transmit a single frequency with each pulse, the CP100 uses CHIRP technology to transmit across a wide spectrum of sonar frequencies with each pulse – the result is much higher resolution, photo like sonar images.
Key Sonar features:
- Photo-like imagery of bottom structure using Raymarine’s CHIRP DownVision technology.
- Dual Channel CHIRP sonar; view high resolution CHIRP DownVision structure imagery and target fish with CHIRP sonar simultaneously.
- Perfectly matched dual beam CHIRP transducers available in transom mount, plastic thru-hull and bronze thru-hull configurations.
