Airmar EchoRange SS510 Smart Sonar Depth Sensor

The Airmar EchoRange SS510 Smart Sensor is a low-cost depth sonar for bridge scour monitoring, sediment transfer studies, and portable hydrographic surveys.


  • Embedded transceiver with digital signal processing
  • Outputs depth & temperature using NMEA 0183 data output
  • Robust 316 stainless steel housing for fixed or portable mounting


Pairing the Airmar EchoRange SS510 Smart Sensor with a computer or data logger provides a low-cost, portable hydrographic survey system. The EchoRange can also be fixed to a bridge abutment or pillar for unattended monitoring of scouring conditions.

Data Collection
The sensor digitally processes depth and water temperature signals to communicate data via NMEA 0183 protocol. Using NMEA 0183, the sensor easily interfaces with computers or data collection platforms with a data output rate of up to 10 times per second. The EchoRange is constructed with a robust stainless steel housing and has a measurement range from 0.4m to 200m with 0.01m resolution.
