Scanning sonar type KCS-3000-KCS-3500 for fishery

Even a compact size brings satisfaction to your fishing

Low and medium frequency with new functions enables greater detection and cost performances.

  • One touch memory keys to recall suitable settings for your fishing style and conditions.
  • High precise LCD monitor and easy handling remote controller provides luxury in bridge.
  • Hull unit guide ring offers safety and toughness.
  • Integrated transmitter and receiver unit offers space saving and easy mounting.
  • Full screen, multi, audio, fish finder screen; Various kinds of display mode.
  • High maintainability and sturdy transducer with a unique dorm-structure.

Compact and cost-effective sonar

The transmitter and receiver units have been integrated into one as a TX/RX unit and have been down-sized for cost effective and space-saving purposes. The high quality and reliability hull unit with a pressure release guide ring is compact ; It is the smallest type with is total length being less than 2m, and can be used as a 2nd supplementary sonar system in large fishing vessels as well as in midlle and small sized fishing vessels.

Performances as if super sonar 

The low frequency sonar (KCS-3000) provides a greater detection range the same as our super sonar and the middle frequency sonar (KCS-3500) provides a high resolution like that of our high frequency sonars. These two models are available depending on your fishing style, fishing ground and target fish.

Multiple display mode

Horizontal screen can be chosen from display mode of normal, full, and multi screen.

By using off-center function of normal and multi screen, own boat direction can move all around, In others following selections are available : (1) fish-finder screen showing fish finder signal on the side of horizontal screen and (2) audio screen showing sonar picture of audio direction in time series.

Multiple display mode

Compact and easy-to-use remote controller.

Your favorite maximum 10 different sonar setting patterns can be memorized in the (sonar memory) function, which enables you to recall suitable sonar setting for different fishing grounds and fish target easily with one touch finger operation. The standard normal sonar setting is already memorized in the 11th memory as the default setting which is protected from over-writing, and therefore the standard normal setting can be recalled anytime whenever needed. Five preset keys and a maximum of 8 screen memory keys are for frequent use menu registration.

Reliable and tough transducer

A pressure-release guide ring introduced for all of our hull unit as standard option reduces swaying and shaking of the transducer. Our uniquely designed enclosed transducer projecting out into the sea water ensures easy maintenance and toughness.
