Compatt 6 Standard is the positioning workhorse of the subsea construction industry. Its design, field proven in offshore developments around the world, offers the perfect balance between size, acoustic output and battery life. Several depth ratings are available starting at 3,000 metres, increasing to 5,000 metres and 7,000 metres. All are hard anodised Aluminium alloy with protective polyurethane sleeve. Depending on the application, Compatt 6 Standard can be configured with a wide variety of different endcap sensor options (including temperature, inclinometer, DigiQuartz pressure sensor) and a highly robust acoustic release to aid recovery at the end of an operation.
