Scientific Equipment Interfaces

Digital:RS232 standard ports available (300 through 115,200 Baud)
Power:12, 24 and 48 VDC switched circuits available, custom voltages upon request
Data:Instruments can be synced to precision clock (e.g. all the main computer stack, imaging stack, multibeam, sidescan, PHINS gyro are synced)

** Potentially able to accommodate other digital/power formats and/or quantities.

All science gear connections must be worked out during the pre-cruise process. Please contact
