By adding the optional WASSP Module together with the PBG Module to your TIMEZERO software, you can connect this Multi-Beam Sonar via Ethernet to your computer and unlock powerful integration features. The WASSP Sonar continuously receives multiple depth readings of the sea floor area around your boat. This data is sent directly to TIMEZERO and used to create a highly-detailed PBG map. Save time and money by mapping the sea floor faster than ever before.
Create your bathymetric (PBG) map rapidly with the multi-beam WASSP Sonar. As the name suggests, multiple beams are sent out by the sonar at all times, in many different directions. These beams return depth data for the area all around the boat covering a much larger area in one pass, as opposed to just directly beneath your boat as is the case with “single beam” sonars. Instead of just registering a single depth reading per boat position, this Multi-Beam sonar allows you to record 112 to 224 points at a time, saving you time so that you can identify the best fishing spots sooner.
The WASSP Sonar is sold with a dedicated computer. However, you will truly transform the WASSP system by connecting a second computer running TIMEZERO with PBG Module to the sonar.
This will provide a much more powerful and detailed display of the sonar as well as the ability to view additional types of information. Take your WASSP Sonar to a new level of functionality by integrating it with TIMEZERO.
- Much greater display resolution
- Better 3D presentation (display)
- Access to all the advanced features of TIMEZERO such as Depth Shading, Discrete Color Shading, Contour Lines, Marks Management, etc.
In addition to sending 112 to 224 depth points at the same time, WASSP also sends “Backscatter” data to TIMEZERO.
This Backscatter provides information about the Bottom Hardness of the area.
This means that when you integrate a WASSP Sonar with TIMEZERO, you will have 3D data and bottom hardness information (that can also be displayed in color directly on your chart).
It is possible to display Backscatter data in either manual or automatic mode.
If for any reason you believe that any of the PGB points are erroneous, it is possible to delete WASSP PBG points in TIMEZERO by using the ‘Delete PBG’ tool and by drawing a free-hand area on the chart.
TIMEZERO is compatible with fishing WASSP models, including the legacy range. WASSP Sonars are distributed by Furuno.
