MKPlus Deck Unit
The new MKPlus Deck Unit powers and interfaces the OCEAN SEVEN 3xx CTDs with an auto-adaptive V32/V32bis modem to optimize the full-duplex communication in real time, depending on the connection conditions. The communication speed of 14.400 bps over the oceanographic cable allows obtaining a higher transfer rate from the interfaced OCEAN SEVEN 3xx CTDs. Visual feedback is provided to the operator during communication to indicate the line quality and speed automatically selected by the MKPlus modem.
The V32/V32bis telemetry modem has been added to the basic electronics and functions of the well-proven MK Deck Unit; up to 100 units were sold all over the world. The MKPlus Deck Unit provides high voltage telemetry power supply (220 VDC) to allow the OCEAN SEVEN 3xx CTDs to interface and power several additional probes. The MKPlus Deck Unit is housed in a 19″ rackmountable metallic box and is designed for on-board operations. The MKPlus Deck Unit operates with: 115/220 VAC +/-10%, 50-60 Hz +/- 5%. Telemetry power supply: 220 VDC (max 1A@12V). Dimensions: 480x160x90. Weight: 3 Kg.
