WaterLinked Locator A1

Regular price $463.00

The worlds smallest underwater locator device – by far!

With its extremely small size (like a thumb) it is very easy to integrate on even the smallest mini-ROVs.

Typical Applications

Mini-ROVs and other underwater devices which use a twisted pair based tether.

Benefits
  • Extremely small footprint enabling easy integration/fixation
  • Highly robust operation in areas with acoustic reflections (shallow water, around installations, inside tanks etc.)
  • No GPS based time-sync. This enables operation inside buildings where there is no GPS available. It also enables permanent submerging without the need to surface for new time-syncs.
Requirements
  • The Locator must be wired to the topside positioning computer through a dedicated twisted pair. This is usually achieved by dedicating a twisted pair in the ROV tether to the Locator-A1.
  • The topside positioning computer needs to receive depth readings from the ROV through the supplied software API. Software example code is available for download.
