Description

The MacArtney Nexus MK C Multiplexer is a plug and play multiplexer for ROVs. This built to order multiplexer is intended to be the main multiplexer for a work class Remotely Operated Vehicle or similar submersible vehicle. It can be fitted to new ROVs or as an upgrade to existing systems. The multiplexer is easy to install and can handle data for ROV setups that require multiple cameras, sonars, attitude sensors, manipulators, cable or pipe trackers etc. It is based on Focal 907 series multiplexer boards in combination with MacArtney MiniController and specialized interface boards.

The topside unit is a 19” rack unit which has indicator LEDs on the front panel showing status of all data channels. On the back panel, a number of D-Sub or RJ-45 connectors are installed for serial data and digital I/Os. BNC connectors are used for video and multibeam output.

Camera function and sensor power control is provided through a software interface which also includes monitoring of power interfaces. The control protocol is open (ASCII based) and can be integrated in a larger control system if needed.
