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.
