EvoLogics S2CR USBL is a series of combined positioning and communication devices for a variety of subsea applications. Combining powerful USBL transceiver functionality with full benefits of an S2C technology communication link, a S2CR USBL device is an efficient choice for application scenarios that demand space-, energy- and cost-saving solutions.
S2CR USBL devices provide accurate USBL tracking and full-duplex digital communication, delivering an excellent all-round performance. S2CR USBL devices implement advanced data delivery algorithms, support addressing and networking and are easy to control with a comprehensive set of commands and software-configurable settings.
Switching between positioning and communication modes is not necessary: positioning data is calculated simultaneously with acoustic transmissions. Both features complement each other in a fully integrated positioning and communication system.
The S2CR USBL series offers a selection of short- mid- and long-range devices for shallow or deep water applications. Each product is available in a variety of configurations to offer the best-fit solution for a particular scenario.
Moreover, EvoLogics' new underwater acoustic positioning software, the SiNAPS, provides easy-to-use display features for real-time tracking of multiple targets, supports interfacing with external instruments and offers advanced data management tools.

EvoLogics experts are always ready to address any special requests.
1The Wake Up Module monitors both the RS-232 host interface and the acoustic channel and turns the device on when incoming signals are detected.
To reduce overall power consumption, the acoustic channel is monitored in an on/off toggle cycle of active and idle intervals.
