The C-Kore Subsea Modem allows reconfiguration and data download from C-Kore units whilst subsea. While a C-Kore unit’s built-in display is normally sufficient for instant feedback, the Subsea Modem allows for full result retrieval without recovery to the deck.
The Subsea Modem is built from standard C-Kore parts making it easy to deploy and handle subsea. It is designed for short-range optical communication. The compact unit features a handle to allow the ROV to position the Subsea Modem for the optimum connection, even when the C-Kore units are in awkward locations. The Subsea Modem only requires an RS232 data-link to the surface in order to operate and interfaces with the standard C-Kore software.
Once connected to a C-Kore unit the Subsea Modem can be used to perform any of the operations that would normally be conducted via USB on the deck. This includes changing device settings and downloading full test results. For example, you can use the Subsea Modem to download TDR traces before recovering the C-Kore units to deck. This speeds up operations when the test results influence the critical decision path.
