The ST500 is optimized for long term deployments. In contrast to our compact ST300 series recorders, the ST500 has a traditional open-able style housing that provides access to batteries and data. This allows for larger battery capacity and removable memory cards, making it suitable for long term deployments and fast servicing at sea.
Price includes 150 kHz bandwidth hydrophone, 256GB of memory, cables and software.
Rated to 100m depth. Upgradeable to 500m by installing an optional Prevco 01104-001 pressure relief value from here.
