HP Series Submersible Preamplifier
The Submersible Preamplifier is an essential part of the hydrophone signal as it buffers the signal and provides a 50 Ohm source. It connects either directly to an Interchangeable Probe ('HP' series), or, if required, via a 20dB In-Line Attenuator (A20/1). Power is provided bythe DC Coupler (DCPS) so that the dc power and the acoustic signal share the same conductors in the interconnecting coaxial cable between the preamplifier and the coupler.
