MSR-2 Receiver Satellite Buoys for Marine Instrument

MSR-2 Receiver Satellite Buoys for Marine Instrument

Description

Marine Sat Receiver (MSR-2) is the reception system for satellite buoys developed by Marine Instruments for high volumes of data.

The MSB+ supplied with the MSR-2 receiver makes it very easy for the user to read the buoy’s messages.

The internal GPS located in the antenna of the MSR-2 allows the viewing of the vessel position on the chart of the MSB software, providing information about time and distance of arrival to the buoys, route monitoring, etc.

The MSR-2 consists of an external antenna and an interface which is connected to the PC through USB or serial port. All the components necessary for its installation are supplied.

The MSR-2 interface includes LEDs for a quick and visual monitoring of the device operation: receiver and GPS state, communication with the computer, etc.

Features

  • Especially designed for the management of high volume of data and avoid high communication costs when sending/receiving fishing data from the buoy.

  • Fast and direct communication with the buoys: receipt of positions/soundings, sending of telecommands, GPS position of the purse seiner, automatic activation of the buoys, etc.

  • Autonomous System: does not depend on other systems on board.
  • Global coverage.
  • Less than 1 minute latency in 90% of messages.
  • Spread-spectrum communication technology, difficult to detect by third parties.
  • Internal GPS and possibility of NMEA external GPS.
  • Connection to PC through USB or serial port.

Visual monitoring of the device state.

  • Autonomous system : it is not neccessary to install any other systems on board.
  • The system includes :
  1.  Antenna : Iridium and GPS communications.
  2.  Interface : Data transmission between the computer (with MSB software installed) and antenna. The MSB
    software processes the data received by MSR2.
  • Global coverage with Iridium satellite.
  • System developed for the management of bulk data to avoid high communications costs in the sending/reception of fishing data from the buoys.
  • LEDs for monitoring the operation of the equipment.
  • Fast reception and sending of messages, less than one minute latency.
  • Internal GPS and possibility to use the external GPS through NMEA.
  • Connection to PC through USB or serial report.
  • Fast and direct communications with the buoys : reception of positions or soundings, sending of telecommands, GPS position of purse seine, automatic activation of buoys, etc.

MSB SOFTWARE 

  • Software for the monitoring and tracking of satellite buoys for tuna fishing.
  • Sending of telecommands to buoys from the software to :
  1. Change operation mode.
  2. Switch the flash on and off.
  3. Adjust gain.
  4. Pin the buoy for information at real time.
  • Quick review sounder data on screen. Different colour palettes.
  • Buoy data is shown at real time on C-MAP vectorial charts.
  • Automatic activation of buoys on board from the software.
  • Possibility to create groups of buoys and export the buoy’s data to a file.
  • On chart drawing and text tools.
  • Compatible with MAXSEA, TIMEZERO, TELAURUS, SEA@COM and CATSAT.
