Calibration output values

Section for Calibration Assistant text and narrowband or wideband output values under TS and Sv Offset / Gain and Sa Correction and Angle Offsets and 3dB Beam Angles:

  • Frequency (kHz)
  • Wideband frequencies as constrained by the bandwidth start and end frequencies, and the Frequency step for results (kHz).
  • Transducer gain (dB)
  • Narrowband Simrad value or wideband values evaluated at each item in the set for wideband Frequency.
  • Sa correction (dB)
  • Narrowband Simrad value. Not calculated for wideband case.
  • Calibration offset TS (dB)
  • Narrowband Generic value or wideband values evaluated at each item in the set for wideband Frequency.
  • Calibration offset Sv (dB)
  • Narrowband Generic value. Not calculated for wideband case.
  • Minor-axis angle offset (degrees)
  • Narrowband value or wideband values evaluated at each item in the set for wideband Frequency.
  • Major-axis angle offset (degrees)
  • Narrowband value or wideband values evaluated at each item in the set for wideband Frequency.
  • Minor-axis 3dB beam angle (degrees)
  • Narrowband 3dB beam value or wideband values evaluated at each item in the set for wideband Frequency.
  • Major-axis 3dB beam angle (degrees)
  • Narrowband 3dB beam value or wideband values evaluated at each item in the set for wideband Frequency.
  • RMS error (dB)
  • Wideband values evaluated at each item in the set for wideband Frequency.

Calibration input values

List of Calibration input values used by the Calibration Assistant.

These may include:

  • Current values from the TS and Sv Offsets / Gain and Sa Correction section.
  • Current values from the Angle Offsets and 3dB Beam Angles section.

Notes

Text recorded under the Notes tab of the Calibration Assistant.

Settings

Calibration output - ECS Format

Values listed under ECS File Output of the Calibration Assistant.

Note: Frequency is generally displayed in Echoview in units of kHz, however the unit is in Hz for values in the FrequencyTableWidband array.
