MacArtney Group announced today it will launch its new NEXUS MK VII multiplexer at the 2015 Ocean Business exhibition, which will take place between April 14th and 16th at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton, UK.


The MacArtney NEXUS MK VII is a versatile HD and standard video, Ethernet, serial and multibeam sonar multiplexer based on Moog Focal 907 telemetric technology. The Nexus MK VII's power switching is software controlled via PC or using a tablet with LAN or WiFi connectivity. Sensor power status, telemetry link, and leak alarms are also continuously monitored by the software. Advanced features include programmable fuses and software enabled interface selection. Moreover, the NEXUS MK VII carries all signals over one single mode optical fiber via coarse wavelength division multiplexing, providing a highly efficient link between surface and seabed.


The NEXUS MK VII is highly configurable and allows for an easy upgrade and modification path when requirements change. Multiplexer options can be installed between jobs or even at sea without the need for an electronics workshop. Typical applications for the NEXUS MK VII will include ROV/ROTV systems requiring a HD video and multibeam sonar survey sensor setup, cable trencher systems, towed camera and sensor systems and seabed monitoring applications, including landers and observatory systems.


The 2015 Ocean Business exhibition will showcase over 300 registered exhibitors.
