The TBR 700 RT, RT as in “real time”, allows for a live data feed for manual tracking or automatic, live-feed setups. The TBR 700 RT offers an acoustical modem where the underwater acoustical data can be accessed continuously, and connected to wireless internet with cloud storage, or for local network solutions. The TBR 700 RT communicates through the standard RS-485 protocol which supports long cable lengths and offers great stability. With a four-wire connection, the receiver is supplied with power through the cable (5-12 VDC). All data is stored locally as well as it is transferred through the wire connection. The connectors used in the TBR 700 RT are high quality, rugged, wet-pluggable connectors for trouble-free operation and reliability. The units are delivered with 10m cable with and Amphenol Eco-Mate C016 connector for the dry side. Wetside, cable extensions are available as 25m lengths. We also offer an RS-485 to USB adapter which lets you run the TBR 700 RT directly from your field lap-top or windows tablet.
Due to the TBR 700 flexible and modular design, your existing TBR 700s in the standalone version can be returned to Thelma Biotel and upgraded to a real-time cabled system for the price of the involved parts and labor. There is no battery option with the TBR 700 RT in the standard version, where they must be used with power through cable after conversion.
The TBR 700 RT is a great tool in aquaculture systems where the availability of real-time data is of key value. The cabled receiver provides the operator with direct data access to the fish cages, at all times.
To make the most out of the TBR 700 RT, we have developed the TBR LiveView software which can run on the field lap-top or windows tablet. Contact us for more information.
