Interfacing SeaKing or SeaPrince sensors has been simplified by the Tritech Multicomm Intelligent Junction Box. The Multicomm can be linked to a number of SeaKing sensors and communication can then be made to the SCU (Surface Control Unit) using RS232 protocol. As well as providing RS232 output, the Multicomm can be set to act as a transparent interface allowing communication using Tritech’s ARCNET protocol. This transparent interface also accepts SeaPrince sensors, which provides a simple junction box for system installations where time is critical.
The Multicomm not only interfaces to the full range of SeaKing sensors, the Multicomm can also accept a serial output from a third party sensor such as a gyro. This connects to the Multicomm’s Aux Port The flexibility of the Multicomm junction box provides users with a package that can be interfaced almost anywhere.
