AQUAmodem Op1

The AQUAmodem Op1 is an advanced optical modem that provides a seamless interface between the user and any subsea instrumentation with RS232 serial interfaces, such as our AQUAlogger oceanographic instruments and HYDROlog hydrotest loggers. The connection is made typically via an ROV umbilical, providing simple use and deployment of the instrument. The AQUAmodem Op1 features individual unit addressing and automatic optical or serial data wake-up, to conserve the life of the external battery pack and prolong the service of the device. The instrument permits short range interrogation, commanding, and data download for your subsea monitoring equipment, providing you with a cost-effective and efficient solution to solve your subsea communication needs.

AQUAmodem Op1L

The AQUAmodem Op1L is a new lightweight version of the standard optical modem, designed for use by divers and on small ROVs. Using established technology, the optical modem allows short range interrogation, commanding and data download from underwater equipment. The AQUAmodem Op1L is compatible with any instrument with an RS232 serial interface, including Aquatec’s AQUAlogger 210TY and 540, and can replace costly ROV mateable connectors or cables, resulting in economical operations and greater flexibility.

Innovative design
  • Users can benefit from having access to data subsea, which can be particularly useful at times when it is impractical to retrieve the monitoring instruments.
  • The AQUAmodem Op1 has real-time capability (depending on your monitoring instruments), which can save you time and money in the field, and allows for prompt analysis of data.
The safe and simple solution for underwater data transfer
  • The AQUAmodem Op1 is a cost-efficient alternative to wetmate connectors. As the AQUAmodem Op1 negates the need for permanent cables, operators can benefit from greater flexibility in the deployment of their instruments.
  • Once installed, the AQUAmodem Op1 will wirelessly transfer your information ready for analysis.
Ideal for use with ROV
  • The instrument is designed to transmit data through the ROV umbilical cable, giving simple deployment and operation. Alternatively, the AQUAmodem Op1 can be deployed by divers.
Compatible
  • The AQUAmodem Op1 is compatible with any instrument with an RS232 serial interface, including Aquatec’s AQUAlogger and HYDROlog ranges.
Ready to use
  • We supply you with everything you need to get started, including an external battery, subsea cable, test cables and manuals.
Ideal for use with small ROVs
  • The new instrument is three times lighter than the standard optical modem, weighing only 1kg in air, and neutrally buoyant in water, making it ideal for use on small ROVs.
  • Depth rated to 500m, the AQUAmodem Op1L is suitable for applications in oceanographic, environmental and coastal research, as well as offshore energy industries.
Cost-effective
  • The AQUAmodem Op1L provides an economical alternative to deep-water communication systems in shallow water regions.
  • The modem can replace costly ROV mateable connectors or cables, resulting in economical operations and greater flexibility.
  • The latest version is also interchangeable with Aquatec’s original optical modem, and can reduce expenditure costs when combined with existing systems.
