Online's range of acoustic receiver systems, when used in conjunction with an acoustic pinger, provide a reliable means of tracking and locating a stuck pig in a subsea, liquid filled pipeline, resulting in substantial cost savings.

The range of receivers also allow for detection of a signal from subsea warning beacons or alarm pingers.

The diverse range includes ROV and diver held solutions to suit various applications.

The receivers can be tuned to a wide range of frequencies, making them compatible with most other manufacturer's equipment.
