About Echolog applications

Echolog applications (except for Echolog 60 and Echolog 80) are installed by default when installing Echoview from the download available on the Echoview website, or on an Echoview USB drive.

The default installation folder is C:\Program Files (x86)\Echoview Software\Echoview N\Echoview Utilities where N is the Echoview version.

If you require Echolog 60 or Echolog 80, please contact the Echoview support team (support@echoview.com).

Echolog applications

Echolog

Echolog is the application that broadcasts raw data to enable live viewing in Echoview. Echolog will read and broadcast data for live viewing from the following echosounders and sonars, allowing you to view and analyze data from these systems in real time:

  • Simrad EK80, ES80, WBAT, EKAuto, Kongsberg EA640
  • Simrad Ex60, Ex70, EK15
  • BioSonics DT series
  • Kongsberg Mesotech M3/Flexview (beamformed)
  • Sound Metrics ARIS
  • Sound Metrics DIDSON

Notes:

  • Echosim 60 or Echosim 80 can be used pass data to Echolog when a Simrad Ex60 or Simrad EK80 echosounder is unavailable.
  • Echolog does not support EK500 or EK60 compressed data.

Echolog 500

Echolog 500 includes four applications for logging EK500-compatible telegrams from Simrad Ex60, EK500 and EA500 echosounders:

  • Echolog 500 provides Ethernet data logging from Simrad EK500, EA500 and Ex60 echosounders logging EK500-compatible telegrams via the BI500 port.

  • Echoconfig 500 can setup, save and edit Simrad EK500 or EA500 settings.

  • Echodepth is a utility program for displaying the sounder-detected bottom depth during logging.

  • Echosim 500 is a utility program for simulating a Simrad EK500. It is useful as a first step in setting up and testing Echolog 500.

Note: Echolog 500 was previously named the Echolog module and its applications were previously named Echolog EK, Echoconfig EK and Echosim EK.

Echolog 60

Echolog 60 includes applications for live viewing data from Simrad Ex60, Ex70 and EK15 echosounders:

  • Echolog 60 broadcasts Simrad Ex60 raw data to enable live viewing in Echoview. Simrad .RAW and .OUT or .BOT data files can be compressed into .EK60 files for reduced data storage.

  • Echodepth is a utility program for displaying the sounder-detected bottom depth during logging.

  • Echozip 60 is a utility program for compressing .RAW and .OUT or .BOT files.

  • Echosim 60 is a utility program for simulating a Simrad instrument.

Echolog 80

Echolog 80 includes applications for live viewing raw data from Simrad EK80 echosounders:

  • Echolog 80 broadcasts Simrad EK80 raw data to enable live viewing in Echoview.

  • Echosim 80 is a utility program for simulating a Simrad EK80 instrument.
