S5100 High-performance CHIRP sonar module. Three fully independent channels able to deliver high-resolution sonar coverage across multiple depth ranges, precision-focused for offshore sportfishing anglers.

In Stock - 1 Item

The S5100 high-performance CHIRP sonar module features three fully independent channels able to deliver high-resolution sonar coverage across multiple depth ranges, precision-focused for offshore sportfishing anglers.


Simultaneous split-screen viewing capability puts you in complete control of the water column, while advanced processing technology allows you to fish with noise-free clarity at all depth ranges without ever losing bottom depth tracking. Mix and match your favorite transducer coverage and transmit power for wide and narrow beam widths to reveal more fish, detecting small and tightly spaced fish and identifying thermoclines; or adjust specific CHIRP frequencies from 28 to 250 kHz to precisely target specific depths producing big, crisp arches with clear target separation.


Key Features

  • Three fully independent sonar channels deliver high-resolution coverage
  • Noise-free clarity at all depth ranges
  • Combine any three frequency ranges to target multiple depths, including Ultra-Low, Low, Medium, or High CHIRP
  • Compatible with wide-angle CHIRP transducers for greater coverage of the water column
  • Simultaneous split-screen viewing of multiple depth ranges on your display
  • Maximum depth of 3,000 meters / 10,000 feet (transducer dependent)
  • Easy to install with three plug-and-play 9-pin transducer connectors
  • Compatible with Simrad NSSevo2/3/3S multifunction displays, NSO evo2/3/3S systems, and S2000-series fish finders.


Three Independent Channels

The S5100 is our first sounder module to feature three fully independent sonar channels, delivering true simultaneous coverage of up to three different depth ranges with an uncompromising performance at every range. Connect three single-channel transducers, or pair one dual-channel and one single-channel, to create the perfect sonar coverage for the areas you fish and the species you target.


Noise-Free Clarity

CHIRP sonar uses frequency-swept pulses to improve target resolution and noise rejection compared to traditional single-frequency sonar. With the S5100’s advanced CHIRP technology, you’ll see clear to the bottom with no mid-water noise or clutter.


Wide-Angle Transducer Support

The Simrad S5100 is compatible with Airmar’s wide‐angle CHIRP series of transducers. These are a perfect fit for targeting pelagic species, with enhanced coverage of the upper water column. Wide-angle transducers are also useful in shallow water, where traditional narrow beam angles can provide limited bottom coverage. A wider coverage area not only speeds your search but means individual fish targets are easier to see.


Simultaneous Split-Screen Viewing

View multiple depth ranges simultaneously in customisable “split-screen” configuration. Because all three sonar channels are completely independent, different frequency ranges can be viewed simultaneously in real-time on a single display.


Plug-and-Play Multifunction Display Compatibility

The S5100 module connects to Simrad NSS evo3/3S and NSS evo2 multifunction displays, NSO evo2/evo3 glass bridge systems, and S2000-series fish finders. High-speed Ethernet connectivity enables easy installation almost anywhere on board. An S5100 module can be used to add sonar capabilities to modular NSO evo2/3 MPU systems or to provide additional sonar capabilities on integrated displays with built-in sounder technology.
