Synchronize Your Echoscope® to an External Time Source
The Time Lock Power Supply keeps your real-time 3D Echoscope® sonar accurately synchronized to an external time source.
With a synchronization accuracy of 1 millisecond, your Echoscope® system will be synchronized with your time source for the duration of the survey.
The accuracy of your 3D mosaicked data can be greatly improved by applying a post-processed navigation file using the Corrected Navigation feature in CodaOctopus® Underwater Survey Explorer.
The Time Lock Power Supply requires only a standard NMEA ZDA string over RS-232 and a 1PPS (pulse per second) signal as inputs. Easy-to-read LEDs on the power supply housing display the status of both inputs and the synchronization status.
Available on new power supplies, the time lock feature is a valuable addition to your real-time 3D Echoscope® data acquisition capability.
This functionality is also available in the CodaOctopus® 3D Productivity Station (3DPS), CodaOctopus® Vehicle Integration Module (VIM) and as an OEM hardware package. This functionality is fully compatible with the F180® series and F175™ products.
