Lowrance recently announced its next-generation sonar imaging system, the LSS-2 StructureScanHD. The new system delivers more side-to-side coverage, as well as greater target and bottom definition, allowing users to cover more water faster with fine-tuned clarity and detail. The StructureScan HD sonar imaging module provides picture-like displays for more productive fishing.
Based on Lowrance’s DownScan Imaging technology combined with side-scan imaging, StructureScan HD includes an enhanced transducer design that features three dedicated signals for crisp, clear views to the left, right and directly beneath the boat. The full-panoramic, picture-like returns display sharper images of structure, fish, thermoclines and more.
StructureScan is compatible with Lowrance HDS, Simrad NSS, NSE and NSO, and B&G Zeus multifunction displays. The system also delivers a significant increase in side-scanning capability. With the original StructureScan model, boaters had to choose between side-scanning farther with less detail, or scanning with less range to achieve greater detail. With StructureScan HD, users will experience greater side-scanning range with no loss in resolution. In depths up to 50 feet, for example, StructureScan HD can generate sidescan views that are twice as far with greater resolution, up to 600 feet in total maximum range, according to Lowrance.
The StructureScan HD view also allows anglers to position the cursor on any signal on the screen and receive the distance from the boat and target depth. The synchronized TrackBack function features simultaneous scroll-back in the recorded history of sonar and mapping windows, so you can find spots and set waypoints from areas you went over.
The new sonar imaging system features the processing module, transducer and Ethernet cable. The module features three additional Ethernet ports for viewing StructureScan HD images on up to three multifunction displays. The StructureScan HD sonar imaging module is protected by a two-year limited warranty, and backed by the five-year Advantage Service Program.
Available in April 2012, the StructureScan HD will retail for $599. For more information on the StructureScan HD visit www.lowrance.com.
