With growing interest in the health of the oceans, and in using the oceans to produce energy, the need to understand and measure human effects on the ocean is rising.
Measuring ocean sounds is becoming an important part of meeting new legislation introduced in Europe, North America and Australasia intended to protect the oceans as development rises.
Ocean Sonics makes a new class of product that measures ocean sounds and helps provide greater insight into those sounds, introducing you to a better way to listen in the ocean.
The company was formed to design & build the best acoustic instruments available. Instruments that give high quality recordings, plus, are simpler to use than traditional analog hydrophones. The company is committed to continuously pushing the limits of possibility in terms of range, function, size and power.
If you are looking for a reliable hydrophone that records & outputs sound data in real units then consider the benefits of icListen.
The icTalk Smart Projector is an all-in-one projector that produces a complex range of tones and sweeps. It can be set up by an operator once, and used indefinitely after that, requiring only occasional charging of its battery.
This calibrated instrument outputs sounds over the 10 kHz to 200 kHz range, giving more than 3 octaves of flat response and low distortion. Peak output is 140 dB re.1uPa @1m.
The small hand-held device runs for days on its internal battery, or power it through its data cable. Users can create custom sounds with the combination of tones, sweeps & pauses available.
Users communicate with the icTalk Smart Projector through a PC program called Talk Assistant. This program provides an interface that lets users set up the operating mode, and create the output pattern that the instrument will project. Output patterns can be built using tones, sweeps, and rests in an event table containing up to 40 events. The output pattern can be configured to repeat continuously, or a set number of times per triggering event (start command or magnetic switch activation). The time between pattern repetitions is also configurable.
