SATLINK ELB3010 ISL BUOY
Technology for effective sustainable fishing
Fish Aggregating Devices and buoys have led to a veritable revolution in the world of tuna purse seine fishing, although a careful balance between effectiveness and sustainability has to be kept.
Therefore, the Satlink ELB3010 system has been designed to enhance responsible fishing while simultaneously optimizing it and increasing efficiency and thus productivity for fishermen.
Satlink ELB3010 ISL systems go one step further towards providing for maximum efficiency through Inmarsat’s new satellite modem which is faster and with lower power consumption.
Satlink ELB 3010 ISL model has a built-in SIMRAD scientific echo-sounder. This echo sounder transmits via satellite the amount of biomass it detects below the buoy to a depth of 115 meters.
SMART BUOY WITH MORE DAILY ECHO SOUNDER MEASUREMENTS
ELB3010 ISL is a smart buoy. It is sounding constantly every 15 minutes and when it detects biomass, immediately transmits the information to the vessel/user and continues sounding. The next transmission of biomass will be done as soon as an increment of the biomass is detected.
HIGHER ACCURACY OF ECHO SOUNDER MEASUREMENTS
The new ELB3010 ISL executes a double check in the sounding when it detects biomass, resulting in a second sounding which is a high resolution echo, providing higher accuracy of the measurement results.
Low latency: the ELB3010 ISL answers polls in less than 3 minutes.
Other new features:
-Can be upgraded with future software capabilities via satellite (OTA), even if it is deployed in the water.
-New ﬂash: conﬁgurable light duration and programmable deferred switch on.
-Lower power consumption
Satlink ELB3010 ISL buoys are solar-powered; they don’t use batteries and therefore are completely lead-free.
ELB3010 ISL captures the energy that it requires to operate from solar panels and stores it in super capacitors.
This means its service life-span is only limited by environmental wear and tear. The buoy design requires no maintenance whatsoever and does not deteriorate over time.
This enables us to state categorically that Satlink ELB3010 ISL buoys do not pollute the environment and is a completely sustainable product.
