When Enable the Water column data is decoded by the Driver. Each head has beams starting with 1 at the port side of the matching transducer. This pulse is half a second long so when the wrong active flank is chosen timing can be off by half a second.

This non-conformity will result in small depth independent depth errors at the outer beams. Invalid beams are restored to the MBE data buffer, with all values set to 0, except quality factor FFh and intensity 7Fh.

Only the beam numbers are different. The decoded Quality Indicator QI can be considered a figure with a range between 0 and 64, where 0 stands for best fm3002.

D datagram for position of footprints C datagram to determine internal EM clock drift and offset. F datagram for raw ranges and angles C datagram to identify the serial number from the main head R datagram for raw bathymetry storage as of QINSy version 8 the offset from the clock telegram is no longer used for the EM Decoding Notes Driver will always output the decoded maximum number of beams with a maximum ofEM Important Driver will stop updating if no C clock datagrams are received for more than 30 seconds.

The Beam angles that are reported in the F telegrams are valid in the receive array and kojgsberg in the acoustic center. F or f, D and R Runtime. Acoustic Center is 1. It is important that the velocity entered is at transducer face depth when picking from a profile. In normal mode, the driver decodes the first beams from the telegrams, while with Head II option enabled, it decodes the second beams The echosounder Stabilization is greyed out in the Database Setup because the output string already contains the information about whether the systems is stabilized or not.


See description in Database Setup, except that the present QINSy driver is only meant for datagrams broadcast over a network, so instead of entering serial port parameters, the port number has to be entered. Note that choosing the valid flank is not very relevant for very short PPS pulses e. So for test purposes it is possible to use this driver without receiving the clock telegram but never use it like this operationally. DbSetup example for Simrad Compact system.

Launch angle correction can be calculated by comparing the used sound velocity reported by the multibeam system with the actually measured sound velocity. For amplitude bottom tracked beams this value stands for the used number of samples while for phase bottom tracked beams this value stands for kongserg “fit”.

By default this option is enabled but it can be disabled if necessary through the registry key: In order to obtain valid bathymetric results, the multibeam system and QINSy need valid speed of sound information. These supersede the command line parameters. The drawing below shows a schematic overview of the acoustic center. F datagram for raw ranges and angles D datagram for sampling frequency not included in F datagram C datagram to determine internal EM clock drift and offset.

No real time sound velocity QINSy only supports beam angle corrections when a sound velocity probe is interfaced.

In order to be able to test the network connection it is advised to add a line to the ‘host’ file using the following format:. Only a limited number of packets will be stored: In order to activate the transmission, one should do the following:. In order to activate this make sure to select the driver appropriate Driver Specfic Settings see below.

If the driver is started without the parameter it will start by default in Rho-Theta mode. QPS advises however to keep this enabled. The clock datagram is used to identify the main transducer head’s serial number and therefore the clock message must always be activated.


This echosounder uses pitch konhsberg and therefore it requires the serial input of an attitude sensor EM binary format. FF Hex and 7F Hex, respectively. Recommended Mode F datagram for raw ranges and angles C datagram to identify the serial number from the main head R datagram for raw bathymetry storage as of QINSy version 8 the offset from the clock telegram is no longer used for the EM X-Y-Z mode D datagram for position of footprints C datagram e3002 determine internal EM clock drift and offset “Raw-Data” D datagram is identical to ordinary D datagram except that some variables like for example the beam depression angle are now attitude-uncompensated launching angles.

For the TPU calculation the minimum steering angle can be defined. Backscatter, or raw seabed image intensity values, are stored in the S datagram. Acoustic center is 2. The driver will correct the reported beam angles so they are valid for the acoustic center. Real-time sound velocity fed into Multibeam Unit If the sound velocity can be interfaced real-time into the multibeam system then the beam angles that are reported by the system to QINSy are correct kongsgerg no further angle correction is required.

Beam Intensity em302 backscatter that are stored in the datagram have a range from to 0. If no clock messages are sent then the driver will not decode any bathymetric data.

When Enabled the Raw original Bathymetry packets e. This limitation is activated as soon as the first clock datagram arrives. All types of multibeam systems require the sound velocity profile but systems that utilize beam steering, usually systems with a flat array transducer, require the sound velocity at the head for the beam angle correction beam steering too.

The letters following the port number are an indication of kongsebrg datagrams, which kongsbeeg to be output on this port.

In DbSetup for this driver some driver specific settings can be entered.
