The PR-1 is a highly advanced pinger receiver that will quickly locate any pinger operating from 3-97kHz. It can be operated as a diver-held receiver or can be deployed from a boat. As the diver swims closer to the pinger, the audio tone gets louder and the light bar flashes more LEDs indicating the received signal is getting stronger.
The system is easy to operate. The receiver is tuned to the desired pinger frequency and the diver scans the area. When the diver points in the direction of the pinger, the pinger can be clearly heard in the earphone and the LED light bar also flashes that the pinger has been detected. The sensitivity of the receiver is then reduced and the diver obtains a precise heading to the pinger. By looking at the compass, mounted on top of the receiver, the diver can determine the exact compass heading to the pinger.
If more than one pinger is operating in the area, the diver can switch the receiver tuning (illuminated digital readout) to the new frequency and repeat the above procedure.
The receiver is powered by a nicad battery pack that will operate for 30 continuous hours before needing recharging. Two chargers are provided. One charger operates from 120 vac and the other from a 12 vdc car/boat battery.
