Teledyne Benthos, Inc. announced today the release of its new generation of acoustic telemetry modems. The new ATM-900 series modems add features and functionality that meet industry needs based on the company's proven acoustic technology. The modems are designed to incorporate enhanced data logger capability up to 6MB in a flash file format and offer dual serial ports, allowing users to connect to 2 sensors with a single modem.
"The Teledyne Benthos ATM-900 Series acoustic telemetry modems are a major enhancement to previous modem lines offered. While faithfully replicating acoustic modalities of the earlier series of modems, the new ATM-900 Series provides a long list of special purpose, flexible extensions supporting multiple capabilities beyond standard underwater communications. These capabilities range from high capacity data logging, through updated data storage and user command line interfaces to real-time clock integration." said Teledyne Benthos Chief Scientist, Dale Green.
The new modems are available in 3 configurable formats, with others soon to follow.
