Sonar Equipment Services of Great Yarmouth, UK, have recently added the new Applied Acoustics’ CSP-N seismic power supply to its equipment pool.
The 1200 Joule reverse polarity unit selected by Sonar Equipment will operate a variety of Applied Acoustics’ sound sources including the triple boomer plate S-Boom System, single plate boomers and the new long-life Dura-Spark 240. This novel catamaran based sparker assembly has extremely durable electrodes that rarely need replacing and is ideal for high and ultra high resolution geophysical surveys.
Sales and Operations Manager Neil Jackson quickly recognised the advantages of the new power supply, “We’re really pleased to offer this truly versatile seismic power supply to our customers across the world,” he said, “it’s got all the high quality features and high safety standards that Applied Acoustics products have established over the last two decades or more, as well as the flexibility to work with a variety of sound sources, including the latest models.”
The CSP-N1200 is a compact 7U unit supplied in a durable transit case. It not only incorporates a unique negative voltage output but also proprietary Variable Input Power Circuitry facilitating a ‘soft-start’ to ease generator load.
Sonar Equipment Services’ CSP-N1200 has already been as used as the power supply of choice on a number of seismic sub-bottom profiling site surveys and is now placed with their S-Boom System over at rental partners Oceanvision Equipment Services in Singapore, to support customers in South East Asia and Western Australia regions.
