Coda Octopus has released a new variant of the DA4G, the DA4G-USB and smaller package for analogue and digital acquisition.
The DA4G-USB runs Coda’s GeoSurvey software for either single sensor acquisition (sidescan or sub-bottom profiler) or dual sensor acquisition (DA4G-USB 1000 or 2000).
Existing DA4G owners will be able to re-cycle their DA4Gs into the new model through a re-cycle and upgrade programme. This will involve the return of the existing DA4G chassis to Coda Octopus where selected key components will be tested and re-housed in a new chassis.
Customers will need to add a simple PC or laptop to the DA4G-USB to complete their acquisition package. The GeoSurvey software dongle can either be embedded in the new DA4G-USB or issued separately depending on the customer’s preference.
“The new DA4G has completed in-field testing with one of our key customers, simultaneously recording both sidescan and sub-bottom profiling data efficiently and without any data loss or corruption,” the company said.
