The Delphis V3 is a revolutionary underwater communication device that allows for advanced communication between underwater vehicles, divers, and subsea instruments. Developed by Succorfish in collaboration with Newcastle University School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, this miniature acoustic modem and transponder is being used by research institutes worldwide for a variety of underwater applications.
With the Delphis V3, users can exchange packets of up to 64 bytes between 256 uniquely addressable units using short-burst acoustic waves, making it a highly effective communication solution. The device is low-power and compact, and can be easily controlled using either a simple RS232 serial command protocol or a logic level UART interface (2.5V/3.3V). The latest hardware revision features reduced receiver self-noise, which increases the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and range in low to moderate sea states. The Delphis V3 also includes protection for the power supply input against reverse polarity connection and switching transients, ensuring that the device is protected against short voltage spikes and power supply issues. Delphis V3 can also exchange “ping” messages to measure range between units with sub meter accuracy. The OEM option allows customers to integrate the Delphis V3 into their own products and systems, and to customise it to their specific needs and requirements.
The Delphis V3 is perfect for a wide range of underwater applications, including oceanography, subsea engineering, and marine research. It comes in an optimised new V2 enclosure with one mounting point, making it easy to install and secure in any underwater environment. The collaboration between Succorfish and Newcastle University School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering brings together expertise in underwater communication technology and engineering, resulting in a highly advanced and reliable device. With its cutting-edge features and ease of use, the Delphis V3 is a game-changer for underwater communication.
