Surface power and real-time data acquisition and control for water sampler and the Sea-Bird 9plus CTD; two-way communication over single- or multi-conductor sea cable.
The rack-mountable 11plus V2 Deck Unit supplies DC power to the 9plus CTD, decodes the serial data stream, and passes the data to a computer. The Deck Unit’s back-panel switch permits continuous operation from 120 or 240 VAC 50/60 Hz input power. The front panel provides numeric display of frequency and voltage data via a thumbwheel switch and 8-digit LED readout. It also supports real-time control for a water sampler (SBE 32 Carousel, or G.O. 1015 or 1016 Rosette), NMEA interface, Surface PAR interface, and outputs for an audible depth-triggered alarm and visual remote output.
