Ping360 depth rating

Is the ping 360 sonar depth rating maximum 300m? Even if i change to the wetlink penetrator?
What’s the weakest point on the sonar?

Hi @Jhans,

The Ping360 base is an air-filled cavity containing its control and communication electronics, and the walls and base are reasonably thin, so avoiding excessive deformation of that enclosure is what drives the current pressure rating.

We may look to redesign that at some point to increase the rating, but that is not something we’re actively working on.

If you’re willing to risk your own hardware you could try filling the base with oil (the transducer head is already oil-filled), but that tends to be quite messy to work with, and we can’t provide guarantees for design parameters that we haven’t validated.
