Can the SBE9/11+ system have a video camera feed or other data sources integrated into its sea cable?
The SBE9/11+ system does not have the capability to support any instrumentation data or signals via its sea cable that are not directly connected to the SBE9+ CTD and associated carousels.
There is a hardware upgrade on the 9/11+ system that provides a serial RS-232 data uplink. This is a relatively constrained feature on the 9/11+ system, that allows a serial RS-232 data stream to be passed up the sea cable and saved as a separate data file.
NOTE: This upgrade is installed in the 9/11+ at the factory and operates at 9600 baud, requiring
that the 9/11+ be configured/operating at this same baud rate.
None of this is compatible with a video signal to be integrated into this system. Additional hardware components inline with the sea cable that are not supplied by Sea-Bird Scientific would be required. This custom application is not currently supported.
