Underwater Acoustic Release Systems by Sub Sea Sonics

Welcome

Manufacturing Underwater Acoustic Release Systems Since 2000

 

System Features Include:

  • Use of electrolytic erosion for release, also known as “burn-wire”
  • AR-60-E can be used at depths of up to 1000 ft, 305m
  • LKH Model Release Links have loads up to 200 lbs, 90kg
  • Battery life up to 1.5 years + 3 Releases
  • Salt Water Systems

AR-60-E - ”FULL FEATURED” ACOUSTIC RELEASE SYSTEM

AR-60-E Acoustic Release System.

AR-60-E Acoustic Release System.

‘Full featured’ AR-60-E Acoustic Release System is micro controller based using the “burn wire” principle with a replaceable link.

The Complete System includes a Topside Interrogator, Command Unit and Transducer to send an acoustic signal down to the release.

Each Release Unit has it’s own specific 4 digit code.

Release is effected by a rapid electrolytic erosion.

The basic design eliminates the mechanical moving parts of other release systems thereby enhancing the reliability.

The ‘full featured’ AR-60 system is designed to be as reliable as possible while still attempting to keep the cost relatively low.

It features a link connection that uses a bolt, lock washer, and nut to secure a reliable link contact. There are no internal connectors with the exception of one gold plated socket for firmware.

It does not have a motor shaft penetrating the pressure housing and subject to leaking or binding from grit.

The design utilizes a triple O-ring seal at the battery access end plug.

It has no mechanical leverage on the outside subject to fouling (biological or man made such as a stray line).

It uses a special battery holder for 12 standard AA size cells. Each cell has a diode across it so that if any one, two, or even three of the 12 cells fail to maintain contact or otherwise fail the diodes will take over and keep the voltage high enough for operation to continue.

  AR-50-AA – “LOW COST’ ACOUSTIC RELEASE SYSTEM

AR-60-AA Underwater Acoustic Release System

AR-50-AA Underwater Acoustic Release System

The ‘Low Cost’ AR-50-AA Acoustic Release System is micro controller based using the “burn wire” principle with a replaceable link.

System includes a Topside Interrogator to send an acoustic signal down to the underwater release unit. Each unit is assigned a specific 4 digit code.

The basic design eliminates the mechanical moving parts of other release systems thereby enhancing the reliability.

The ‘Low Cost’ AR-50-AA System has the advantage of quick link change design, smaller size, and lower cost.

TR-45 – UNDERWATER TIMED RELEASE SYSTEM

TR-45 Timer Release System

TR-45 Timer Release System

This Timed Release is micro controller based using the “burn wire” principle with replaceable link.

System includes a Programmer to set the time to initiate release, check battery status, link contact, and verify time to release.
