The sonde uses Piezo-Electric transducers for both the transmitter and four receivers. 

These have a nominal resonant frequency of 28kHz. The sonde electronics for the receivers comprises a single PCB mounted at the top of the sonde and a single PCB mounted in the lower end for the transmitter electronics. 

The four receivers are contained within a single pressure compensated slotted sleeve assembly. The transmitter is mounted towards the bottom of the sonde and is isolated by a polyurethane acoustic damping section. The transmitter crystal is mounted in a second pressure compensated assembly. Both the pressure compensated assemblies are filled with silicone oil and have compensation pistons exposed to the fluid pressure in the borehole.
