Hermes Multiplexor

Sonavision announced sales of the new Hermes MM-A Multiplexor to

Global Contractor Oceaneering

International. Hermes is a hardwired communications multiplexor for data transmission through 8 bi-directional channels over a single twisted pair.

Data communication capability over the cable is 230kbaud in either

RS232 or RS485 modes as selected or switched by the operator. Although initially designed for the Sonavision suite of sensors, the communication link will reportedly carry communi- cations to and from any other serial devices. Set up of the data link is achieved via USB at the surface. A PC based program allows the user to set up channels for format, baud rate & priority. Additionally, the Hermes can be supplied with hardware to dis- tribute and switch power supplies via one channel to a total of 7 sensors.

CaviBlaster Model LG-1620

CaviDyne introduces the

CaviBlaster LG-1620, an air-cooled, diesel driven unit operating at 2,000 psi with the cleaning capacity of a 10,000 psi pressure washer. The LG- 1620 is designed to remove fouling from all types of underwater surfaces without damaging the paint or pro- tective coatings. The low operating pressure protects the diver from being injured and the zero-thrust lance minimizes stress trauma.

CaviBlasters create high-energy cavitation bubbles. The vacuum created when the bubbles implode pulls the marine growth from the underwater sur- faces being cleaned.
