About Echolog 60

Echolog 60 broadcasts raw data from Simrad Ex60, Ex70 and EK15 echosounders and Ex60 data as it is being written by the ER60 or EK60 software. This allows any or all of the following to be done while the data are being logged:

Echolog 60 can run as a stand-alone Windows application or in conjunction with Echoview and Echodepth.

You can run Echolog 60 without an echosounder for evaluation, setup or demonstration purposes using Echosim 60.

Note: Echolog 60 is no longer installed post Echoview 10. If you require it, please contact the Echoview support team (support@echoview.com)

Program Interaction

There are a number of possible configurations for Echolog 60. Below are two of the most common configurations.

Echolog 60 sending data to Echoview and Echodepth

The following diagram shows Echolog 60 reading .raw and .out (or .bot/.idx) files from the survey folder and sending that information to Echoview and Echodepth for display and analysis.

Note: To live view sounder-detected bottom depth in Echodepth, .out files must be being logged. See Echodepth display for more information

Echolog 60 compressing data and sending data to Echoview and Echodepth

The following diagram shows Echolog 60 reading .raw and .out files (or .bot) from the survey folder, compressing the data into Echoview .ek60 files and sending the data to Echoview and Echodepth for display and analysis.

System power options

Microsoft Windows offers power options on the control panel which can request system shutdown or hibernation after periods of inactivity. Echolog 60 will disable these while it is running to ensure that logging is not interrupted.
