SeaHub – Sensor Interface for PC or Laptop Computer
Surface Interface Unit
The SeaHub is a highly versatile product, which allows any customer to interface Tritech or third party survey equipment via a USB 1.1/2.0 connection to a PC or laptop computer.
The compact unit has recently been remodelled in a rugged stainless steel housing, it is available as a desktop unit or 19″ rack mount configuration.
The SeaHub provides additional USB and serial ports to give instant access to storage devices, GPS or other ancillary sensors. The equipment interfaces are software configurable to drive long lines with ArcNet or RS485 as required by the individual sensors and RS232, RS422 or TTL via multiplexer channels.
The unit may be mains or DC powered. If mains powered then a 28VDC (factory preset variable up to 36VDC) output is available to power connected equipment, for example, side scan sonars. If DC powered the output DC is a fused extension of the input supply. Head connections can be made via an AIF compatible 15 pin D connector, a 9 pin serial, or a 6 pin specially configured Tritech DIN connector
Front panel diagnostic LEDs show interface ports in use and their status. The SeaHub is fully compatible with Tritech Seanet Pro software suite.
