Mini Beacons, 1100 Series

Mini with Smart Switch

The 1100 Series Mini beacons incorporate the next generation of Sigma 2 acoustic protocols that provide precise range resolution and positional stability. The beacons have been designed to be used with the new Nexus 2 positioning system, but also retain compatibility with all Easytrak systems and systems from other manufacturers.

The 1100 series coupled with the Nexus 2 provides Multi-Fire functionality, providing positional updates in <3 sec from an array of 10 beacons. The MiQ data uplink function provides third party data plus position to the surface for a variety of applications.

With an industry standard 5-pin connector, the beacons are quick and easy to configure using the 1082 Smart Switch or 1083 Multi-Charger that also activate and monitor the charging of the battery.
