The MacArtney NEXUS MK C is a plug and play  multiplexer for ROVs. This built to order multiplexer is  intended to be the main multiplexer for a work class ROV  or similar 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.
