DST-2AActive DST Module

Model: DST-2 Brand: Octopus

The Actisense DST-2 module is the market-leading way to take analogue transducers into the digital age.

When used with new or existing transducers fitted to a vessel, the DST-2 digitises depth, speed and temperature transducer signals into NMEA data to deliver best-in-class seabed tracking.

When used with an existing installed transducer, the frequency of the DST-2 must match that of the transducer. Typical frequencies used by manufacturers are 150 kHz (common in the UK and EU) and 170 kHz & 200 kHz (more common in the USA).

The module is ideal for operation with any NMEA 0183 compatible devices, such as chart plotters, radars or an on-board PC. In addition, it can be calibrated via a PC for various sensors and installations.

Benefits of the DST-2:

Digitises analogue signals into NMEA data
Use with any NMEA 0183 compatible device
Range of frequencies available
Flash upgradeable 'future-proof' design
Can be calibrated
Trip data available with speed transducers
