OceanServer provides OEMs with innovative power solutions, sensors and robotics for a variety of applications. OceanServer's products are designed to be cost effective and easy to integrate into equipment. This allows customers to dramatically reduce time-to-market and expedite new product introductions for real-world applications. OceanServer Technology is a privately held company headquartered in Fall River, Massachusetts.
OceanServer offers solid-state three axis attitude sensors for a variety of applications where size, functionality and cost are the keys to successful integration. The compasses can be connected via USB, TTL or a RS232 serial connection (or both USB and RS232 in the case of the OS5000-US). OceanServer compass products provide precise heading, roll and pitch data ideal for rapid attitude measurement. Compass applications include, robotics, man-portable devices, marine products, antenna positioning and various other applications.
The compasses include Microsoft Windows, Mac and Linux-compatible drivers for evaluation and testing. Users can download documentation, 3D models and mechanical drawings right from the website (download page). Compass users can purchase a single compass for US$249 or purchase a complete evaluation kit for US$299.
Common features of the compasses include:
The Intelligent Battery and Power System (IBPS) allows designers to add Smart rechargeable Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) battery power to virtually any device. IBPS is a complete set of electronics that provide battery management and charging and ultra-high efficiency ATX power supplies, DC-DC converters and Li-ion battery packs to power small embedded devices or computer systems.
OceanServer battery cluster products provide plug-n-play modular building blocks that enable users to build very large battery powered systems using small, safe Li-ion battery packs. Users can make any device battery powered or replace existing outdated battery systems. These systems are ideal for powering robots, portable equipment, homeland security or military devices or just about anything that needs independent power. All with battery technology and electronics that provide the highest density rechargeable battery power available while providing outstanding safety features.
IBPS battery management modules have an RS232 communication port that provides complete power system information about each of the battery packs connected to it. This information includes fuel gauge, current, voltage, amp-hours, run time to empty, time to full charge and 20 other critical battery parameters on a pack by pack basis. OceanServer components can be integrated quickly into a user’s system or equipment. Product documentation, 3D Models and mechanical drawings are available on OceanServer’swebsite (download page).
The Iver2 is a low-cost, simple to operate AUV system that incorporates an open software architecture and defined hardware interface that enable researchers and OEMs to quickly adapt the Iver for a variety of applications. Common payloads include GPS navigation, CTD probe, altimeter, side scan sonar, and sensors to measure a variety of water quality parameters. Each system includes the OceanServer VectorMap mission planning and data presentation tool, which provides geo-registered data files which can be easily exported to other software analysis tools.
The VectorMap program can input virtually any geo-referenced chart, map or photo image, allowing the operator to intuitively develop missions using simple point-and-click navigation. The base vehicle, with a starting price at just over US$50,000, gives university, government and commercial users an affordable base-platform for survey applications in water quality, hydrography, security and general research.
