EdgeTech, a leader in underwater technology, has designed a new portable acoustic deck box.
The Portable Acoustic Command System (PACS) is a highly versatile deck unit that can be used to obtain status information, enable, disable, range-to and release EdgeTech’s low frequency (LF) or medium frequency (MF) acoustic releases and transponders. Capable of working with all EdgeTech, ORE Offshore and EG&G acoustic releases, PACS provides an easy-to-use interface and the flexibility to work with acoustic frequencies from 9kHz to 25kHz depending on the subsea acoustic release equipment operated by the customer. The splash proof unit operates on internal lithium ion rechargeable batteries and is back-lit enabling successful operations in all types of conditions.
