Energy Sources, CSP Units

To accommodate industry demands for power output, Applied Acoustics manufactures a range of CSP units that provide the energy to the sound source, a Boomer or Sparker, deployed at sea. Each compact design CSP Energy Source converts mains voltage to high voltage to energise the sound source and conforms to EU specifications for electro-magnetic compatibility.


CSP-P

Output, per shot, 350J

Designed to be the lightest 350 Joule power source, the CSP-P utilises cutting edge power supply technology to produce a small unit with an exceptional power output.CSP-P

Developed primarily as a power source for boomer plates, the CSP-P operates in excess of 300J at 3pps, the offshore industry standard specification, and as such is regarded as the power supply of choice throughout the world.

The CSP-P now incorporates the unique innovative feature first developed for the    CSP-D, the Dual Voltage Output, giving the unit exceptional versatility. By adjusting the voltage output, switchable on the front panel, greater penetration can be achieved from the boomer plate sound source.


CSP-Dv

Output, per shot, 700J or 1200J or 2400J

CSPDv AThe new CSP-Dv incorporates microprocessor control and configuration for greater flexibility and reliability whilst retaining a fail safe logic design. It has an intuitive user interface with LCD display and LED indicators to provide enhanced operator system feedback.

Programmable voltage technology allows operator tuning to suit application, with all settings externally selectable.

The CSP-Dv has additional safety and protection features over and above the standard safety systems and operational functions found across the entire range of CSP energy sources. It is compatible with the S-Boom, single plate boomer and Squid sparker systems.


CSP-Nv (Reverse Polarity)

Output, per shot, 1200J or 2400J

The new CSP-Nv incorporates microprocessor control and configuration for greater flexibility band reliability whilst retaining a fail safe logic design. It has an intuitive user interface with LCD display and LED indicators to provide enhanced operator feedback.

Programmable voltage technology allows operator tuning to suit application with all settings externally selectable.

The CSP-Nv is the driving force behind the Dura-Spark range but is also suitable for use with the S-Boom system and single plate boomer systems.

 


CSP-S

Output, per shot, 500 – 12,000J

The CSP-S is a compact ‘all in one’ power source for marine sparker applications, specifically the Applied Acoustics’ Delta Sparker, used when very highCSP-S penetration sub-bottom profiles are required. To allow for reduced cost and weight, the unit can be supplied as a 1250J, 4000J, 6000J or 12,000J variant and allows for subsequent upgrades, with no requirements for separate capacitor banks.

The high charge rate allows for fast, high energy sound pulses from sparker and high power boomer sound sources.
