LinkQuest - Press Release - January 1, 2005

TrackLink Transponders Become Smaller

TrackLink 1500 acoustic tracking systems are the world's best selling USBL positioning systems. Recently, LinkQuest Inc. has released TN1505 series of small and light weight transponders to facilitate more convenient and flexible installation on small ROVs and towed systems. The TN1505A transponder is about 9.8" in length and 2.5" in diameter (25 cm x 6.4 cm). The TN1505B transponder is about 12" in length and 2.5" in diameter. It includes an alkaline battery pack which can last one year in operation and 80 hours in continuous responding time. The TN1505C transponder is similar to TN1505B transponder but includes a Lithium battery pack which can last two years in operation and 240 hours in continuous responding time.

All models utilize the field-proven highly robust Broadband Acoustic Spread Spectrum technology. They also have a remote transducer option. With this option, the transducer is connected to the electronics housing by a cable. All models can be configured to act as responders using the TrackLink Navigator Windows software. All internally powered transponders can also be powered externally. If the external power is cut off, the transponder will automatically switch to use the internal battery.
