JW Fishers: New Proton 5
JW Fishers Mfg. is celebrating its 50th year in business and has been produc- ing magnetometers since 1979. The new
Proton 5 boat-towed magnetometer is a fully digitized system that displays the current 5-digit measurement on an easy to read 6-inch LCD screen that is backlit for night operations. Up to 80 of the previous measurements are dis- played graphically in a history plot on the screen and the optional altimeter (displays tow? sh distance from ocean bottom) is displayed on the LCD screen.
User friendly menus allow easy con- ? guration of all operation settings. The “auto tuning” feature greatly simpli? es set-up when operating in different lo- cations. Done directly from the control
