Port 10 - Interface and Data Logging Module

Port 10

Interface and Data Logging Module

Our multifunctional interface and data logging module features 10 serial ports (6 x RS232/422/485 and 4 x RS232) and additionally it shows an onboard SDHC based data logger with 32GB storage capacity.

Six serial ports are individually configurable to RS232/422/485 and feature a 64 byte hardware FIFO. Four serial ports are RS232 with a hardware handshake. Baud rates up to 230kbps are possible.

Two independent DC/DC converters provide a supply voltage of 5V, 8V or 12V to any of the serial ports (routing is software-compatible). Switching off ports can be trigged by the command interface or a configurable schedule.

Maximum current for each supply voltage is 2A. Optionally, the two DC/DC converters can be parallel-connected with an equivalent supply voltage, this circuit helps increasing the maximal possible sensor supply current in up to 4A.

The Port 10 module is primarily intended to be a flexible and powerful multiport data logging and controller solution in buoy based and ocean bottom sensor systems – either standalone or in combination with any of our telemetry systems. Due to the very low current drain, Port 10 is an ideal answer to be used for long-term deployments.

Connecting Port 10 to our HAM.BASE hydro acoustic modem by a dedicated system bus interface, the combination offers up to 14 serial ports with selectable sensor supply ( 8 x RS232/ RS422/ RS 485 software selectable, 6 x RS 232). This configuration allows up to three different sensor supply voltages to be available simultaneously.

Our Port 10 firmware, a solid solution to handle special applications not comparable to the common configurable standard firmware, allows a reliable and economic customization in any way.
