Link between underwater IM instruments and the SIM / IMM
The ICC is a link in Sea-Bird’s Inductive Modem (IM) telemetry systems, used in applications where the plastic-jacketed wire termination is grounded to seawater (at a chain, for example). The ICC clamps to the jacketed mooring wire, and makes electrical connection with the Inductive Modem Module (IMM) or Surface Inductive Modem (SIM) via a cable housed in reinforced-rubber conduit. The conduit’s upper end is fixed to the buoy hull with the provided clamps. The conduit/cable must be long enough to prevent buoy motion from pulling it completely straight and putting tension on the ICC.
Simplifies Sea-Bird's field-proven IM telemetry
ICC comes with pigtail cable, conduit, and buoy hull clamp. Optional molded-on cable connector and matching bulkhead connector can be ordered; consult factory for availability.
Fits mooring cable diameters of 1/4 inch, 5/16 inch, 3/8 inch, 1/2 inch, 6 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm, or 16 mm; heavy duty version for 38 mm diameter mooring wire.
Cable length specified up to 10 m; longer lengths available (> 50 m not recommended).
