uWave Max OEM - Underwater acoustic modem
Device specifications

KEY FEATURES

DESCRIPTION

uWave Max OEM is based on UTRO platform and is supplied as a printed circuit board module with RT-1.524525-1 transducer.

With the uWAVE Max OEM modems, the user can:

Devices from uWave family use a simple open NMEA-like configuration protocol, and the supplied open-source libraries uWaveLib (.NET) and uWave ALib (Arduino) allows for the fastest and easiest integration of devices into custom solutions.

Differences from the basic version uWave:

1 A parameter that determines the maximum range at which a signal can be received based on the electro-acoustic parameters of the transmitter and receiver, spatial decrease in the intensity of sound energy, attenuation in the medium and acoustic noise level.
2 When working with another uWave Max/uWave Max OEM or when working with uWave USBL Modem. The maximum communication range with standard modems uWave is 1000 meters.
3 This value is obtained without the presence of the multipath effect.
