Innova Matrix Mk II+

The Matrix is a stand-alone fibre optic multiplexer and control solution, providing a simple, plug and play interface for a large array of sensors and equipment to any remotely operated system.



The system consists of a compact, one-atmospheric subsea unit rated for 3000 MSW, and a 19” rack mounted topside unit with touch screen and status for all channels on the screen.

The Matrix’s internal control system provides individual 2-pole switching of all power outputs as well as DC power insulation monitoring. The DC power outputs are equipped with software re settable fuses to save operation time. All DC power outputs are equipped with voltage and current monitoring, which is also displayed in the topside controller.
