Tritech's Super SeaKing sonar is the ultimate mechanical scanning sonar. Utilising Digital Sonar Technology (DST) composite transducer and Compressed High Intensity Radar Pulse (CHIRP) technology, the Tritech Super SeaKing DST offers exceptional clarity and resolution as a dual frequency mechanical scanning sonar.

The SeaKing sonar is of modular transducer design and a longer-life slip ring assembly to the sonar to minimise the consequences of operational damage and improves on the SeaKing sonar’s reliability.

The Super SeaKing Sonar is the industry-standard obstacle avoidance sonar for larger ROVs and is so popular it can be found fitted to work-class ROV fleets around the world.

The Super SeaKing DST Sonar hosts two mechanically scanned imaging sonars in a single subsea pressure housing: a 325 kHz CHIRP sonar with a true operational range of up to 300 metres for long range target recognition and a 650 kHz CHIRP sonar for ultra-high definition images, other frequency options are available on request.

The SeaKing range of mechanical imaging sonars comprises the Super SeaKing, Super SeaPrince, MicronSonar and SeaKing Hammerhead. All products in the SeaKing family (or third-party products within the ArcNet communications link), can be run simultaneously, using the same processor and display; such as the Surface Control Unit (SCU) or a customer supplied PC or laptop.


This is nearly always an issues with the RS232 ground which is usually missing.  Check for continuity on the copper sections between each end of the cable.

On the small change it is not then it a RS485 device connected to an RS232 port.
