  • Page 17: Section 1 Introduction, Function

    SECTION 1 Function The Color Fish Finder FF50 is a system that uses the basic principles of sonar to show lake or seabed conditions and to detect fish. It consists of a transducer, which is installed on the transom, or thru-hull transducer, and a display unit.

  • Page 18: Features

    Features DUAL FREQUENCY Because two frequencies, 200 kHz and 50 kHz can be used, the areas used to search for schools of fish is more flexible and information on the type of fish or seabed can be better determined by comparing echoes of each frequency. The display in the dual-frequency mixed mode is also available.

    GPS/DGPS Basics The Navstar/GPS system is a satellite-based radio navigation system designed to provide global, continuous 24 hour-per-day, all weather, accurate position data for navigators. The GPS(Global Positioning System) is based on a GPS sensor’s ability to accurately measure the propagation time of signals transmitted from orbiting satellites in your sensor.

  • Page 94: Differential Gps (dgps)

    Differential GPS (DGPS) The differential GPS comprises a reference station with its position(latitude and longitude) accurately known, a beacon station for radio broadcasting of DGPS correction data, and user-owned GPS sensor equipped with a differential correcting function. The GPS sensor is used to fix the position of the reference station whose position is accurately known and to eompare this with the actual reference station position to get range errors.
