Pulse EKKO PRO - Frequently Asked Questions
Can I apply for a GPR system before I obtain a licence from OFCOM?
Yes, you may apply and wait for confirmation of your loan request before you apply to OFCOM for a licence (the current cost is £50 for 3 years). You must not operate the equipment in the UK until you receive the licence. More information on GPR licensing is available in this OFCOM PDF guide.
Is the Pulse EKKO PRO waterproof?
No, parts of the system, and in particular transmitters and antennas, must be protected from water. The DVL control console is splashproof to some degree and is sealed to IP66.
What batteries are supplied by the Facility?
The transmitter and receiver run from 12V rechargeable batteries supplied by the Facility. The main DVL console control unit is powered by another 12V rechargeable battery in a belt-worn pack and is also supplied by us. We supply cables should you wish to power the DVL from another 12V source.
