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.
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.
