Hydrophone AR0190XS

The AR0190XS is a pre-amplified omnidirectional hydrophone, suitable for a wide range of applications requiring working frequencies up to the ultrasonic range (170 kHz). This device has been developed to fit where no much space is available such as AUVs, AR0190XS comes from the GP family but with modified electronics and mechanics.
