Low noise hydrophone mod. GP1280

Low-noise preamplified omnidirectional hydrophone (“below sea state zero”). It is a highly professional instrument, suitable for a wide range of applications in the field of underwater acoustics. The hydrophone’s high sensitivity, together with the low voltage noise of its highly customizable preamplifier, make it particularly suitable for working in the field of bioacoustics, for environmental noise measurements and for the acoustic characterization of sources in the 5Hz-90kHz frequency range. Optional corrosion-proof jacket and other accessories available.
