FEATURED PRODUCTS



Fiber Optic Connector
The ultracompact BIRNS Millennium 3F connector provides high bandwidth connectivity and is compatible with both single and multimode optical cables. It is engineered for applications that require long cables and has been tested by ETA-I-certified optical technicians. It withstands open-face hydrostatic pressure testing and has ≤.3dB of optical loss. BIRNS Inc.

Data Logger
The TR-74Ui Illuminance UV Recorder can simultaneously measure and record illuminance, UV, temperature and humidity and can also display cumulative illuminance and cumulative UV. It can store a total of 32,000 readings in one-time or endless recording modes. TandD Corp.

Fluorometer
With BTEX as the standard, this new low-wavelength Cyclops-7 submersible fluorometer is able to detect as low as 0.1 ppm over a dynamic range of more than 250 ppm. The C7 can be integrated into the Turner Designs C6 Multisensor Platform or any third-party platform that supplies power and data logging. Turner Designs Inc.

Waterproof Displays
The Signature II series of waterproof, sunlight-readable displays feature LED backlight technology and optical enhanced bonded glass. Nauticomp Inc.

Underwater Camera
The OceanCam® OPT-10HD can be controlled and viewed over the Internet and can be configured to stream live video to viewers simultaneously. The PTZ camera transmits H.264 compressed 720p video with audio. It delivers 16:9 picture quality at 30 fps. Ocean Presence Technologies.

Side Scan Sonar Towfish
The CM2 DeepTow is rated to 2,000 m and is intended for use with long, steel-armored tow cables. It retains the sonar transducers, electronics and image quality of the standard CM2 towfish but in a heavyweight body suited to deployment from larger vessels. C-MAX Ltd.

Data Buoy
A monitoring platform for short and long-term deployments, the Shearwater Data Buoy is adaptable to ocean, river and coastal applications and is designed to withstand harsh conditions. OSIL.

Multigauges
Multigauge 4000 Series ROV thickness gauges mount onto most work-class ROVs and have either an RS-422 or an RS-232 output. They use Multiple Echo to ensure coatings do not have to be removed; only the metal substrate is measured. Tritex NDT Ltd.

Piezoelectric Components
These piezoelectric composite components can be used in a wide range of undersea applications, including conformal sensors and detectors for ships and deployable vehicles as well as in large-area arrays for undersea exploration. Morgan Technical Ceramics.

Anchor Retrieval Device
Anchor Wizard is designed to safely and easily position and retrieve all types of anchors. Made from anodized aluminum, the device relies on a ball bearing, slip clutch drive that is precision-machined for years of use, and the wide, forged aluminum spool holds up to 400 ft. of 1/4-in.-diameter rope. Anchor Wizard.

Marine LCD TV
TD1920 is a 19-in. marine LCD television that can be connected directly to any 12 V source. It weighs less than 10 lbs. and has inputs such as PC, component and HMDI, as well as a built-in digital TV tuner with multizone analog. Majestic Global USA.

Calling Card
The VSAT prepaid calling card enables voice calls via the Radio Holland Global VSAT network, allowing greater cost control over private communications with minimal adminstration. Coverage is provided over all major shipping routes around the world. Radio Holland Group.

LED Light
A more powerful hazardous location LED light, the HAL-48-2L-LED features 50,000 hours of bulb life and solid state design and is suitable for both high and low-voltage applications. It has UL 844 Class 1 Division 2 ratings for groups A, B, C and D. Larson Electronics.

Pressure Sensors
Electrostatic discharge packaging has been added to all piezoresistive pressure sensor lines. This packaging supports many companies’ formalized in-house ESD control programs and also protects highly sensitive pressure sensors from handling damage prior to reaching their intended application environment. Endevco Corp.

Environmental Software
TREx is a biological data analysis tool that is designed to be used either in conjunction with the company’s Unicorn biological database software or as a stand-alone package. It is an add-in for Microsoft Excel with a primary function of standardizing nomenclature and providing additional information to assist data comparability and reporting. Unicomarine Ltd.

Solid State Linear Accelerometers
Available in ranges from ±2 to ±500g, the A545 series of single, biaxial and triaxial accelerometers feature an advanced MEMS sensor, incorporating air damping. Sherborne Sensors Inc.

Data Recorder
The Vortex SDRxE is a fixed-feature, off-the-shelf, multichannel GbE streaming data recorder system for sensor-to-processor streaming data applications. It combines a 3U controller with a reliable, scalable storage subsystem, and it can record up to 4 channels of GbE data at 125 MB/s per channel. Vortex storage options include a 3U SBOD with 16 FC disks and a 4U RAID that supports as many as 48 SATA or SAS disks. Curtiss-Wright Controls.

Magnetometer
Designed primarily for use in surveillance systems, the 3-axis Mag648S incorporates fluxgate technology for noise performance and is submersible to 2,000 m. It is specially suited to harbor and coastal applications and features low power consumption, a 4 V power supply and 12 years of MTBF. Bartington Instruments Ltd.

Oil Detection and Alarm System
Slick Sleuth technology—software, remote detection stations and base station—can now be deployed in ports, harbors, coastal installations, fish farms and other aquaculture environments, and sensitive habitats. It has been integrated with a catamaran flotation platform and now includes a remote wireless telemetry unit, solar DC power unit and specialized base station software. InterOcean Systems Inc.

Current Meter
The Sea Current Meter package consists of a DVL interfaced to a telemetry transponder that sends 3D sea current data via acoustics to an onboard HiPAP system. The HiPAP DVL update rate can be set to read current data every 5 to 30 minutes. Kongsberg Maritime AS.
