Product Description

Airmar R109 —CHIRP, 2kW Transducer
When Your Living Depends on Finding Fish...
Rely on Airmar’s new broadband transducers for the ultimate fishing mission. Whether you’re a commercial fisherman, charter captain, or tournament angler, there’s a new game in town! CHIRP transducers enable bottom detection down to 3,000 m (10,000’) with 5 to 10 times greater detail and resolution so precise it’s possible to distinguish between individual baitfish, game fish, and underwater structures. One transducer delivers up to 117 kHz of total bandwidth in just one installation, saving time and money.
Airmar…it’s what’s under your boat.

The CHIRP Difference
Traditional marine fishfinders operate at discrete frequencies such as 50 kHz and 200 kHz, use relatively short-duration transmit pulses, and use narrowband sonar transducers. In contrast, CHIRP (compressed high-intensity radar pulse) uses a precise sweep pattern of many frequencies within a long-duration transmit pulse from a broadband transducer, so the equivalent sound energy transmitted into the water is 10 to 1,000 times greater than a conventional marine fishfinder. The echo energy returning to the transducer, superior to that generated by a conventional transducer, is then processed by the fishfinder’s DSP (digital signal processing) computer and displayed in ultra-sharp detail on the display. The combination of CHIRP, a broadband transducer, and the fishfinder’s DSP, results in dramatically better fish and bottom detection, superior depth capability, and significantly better performance at speed.

Does YOUR Fishfinder CHIRP?
Only CHIRP/Spread Spectrum sounders using Airmar broadband transducers can operate as a CHIRP fishfinder system. When Airmar’s new transducer is paired with a broadband fishfinder, the result is 5 to 10 times greater sensitivity and performance than current fishfinder technology. Packed with exclusive technology like Transducer ID® and newly engineered piezoceramic elements, Airmar transducers are über sensitive and designed to automatically sweep frequency bands from 28 kHz to 210 kHz with no tuning necessary. As a result, all targets detected in the entire bandwidth will be seen on the display rather than only what is identified in traditional frequencies at 50 kHz and 200 kHz.
