Designed with users in mind, the Geomatrix marine magnetometer telemetry system is a simple plug and play devised for short to medium length centre conductor armoured wirelines. Consisting of a Top side power Supply & Wet End Enclosure the system offers up to 8 data channels supporting any combination of digital devices. Providing 12 & 28 VDC power rails the system is capable of running up to 5 Geometrics G-882 magnetometers, digital Gyro, digital altimeter, digital sound velocity probe or any other digital device capable of sending data in serial.
On receiving power from the top end power supply the on board computer directly controllers
The wet end unit incorporates a digital pitch and roll module for monitoring the stability of the towfish frame during deployment.
The top End power/data unit has been designed with reliability in mind. No bells and whistles, just simply plug the system into a 240v (optional 110V) mains supply and switch it on. LEDS on the front panel indicates if the top end unit is operating correctly.
The small and compact design of the Wet End electronics package, in conjunction with the innovative design of the Geomatrix TVG frame, allows the unit to be mounted directly onto the tow point assembly without inciting noise into the magnetometers.
Designed for shallow water deployment the TVG Telemetry system can operate on up to 500m of wireline depending on the cable type.
