Tritech SeaNet SCU V5 – Surface Control Unit

The Surface Control Unit from Tritech allows users to operate multiple sensors and sonars through one unit.


The Seanet SCU is a multi-tasking control unit running under Microsoft Windows™, which is installed on an internal solid-state disk. Supplied with the Seanet SCU is a Remote Access Terminal (RAT) which is an ergonomically designed device proving the user with a number of control functions. This RAT either clips neatly onto the front of the unit or is used remotely over the extensions a cable.

To ensure the Seanet SCU provides a reliable and easy to install unit it has been designed as a robust 19” 3U rack mount unit with ruggedly mounted sub assemblies for maximum reliability. A high speed 156kbit•s-1 communication system is used within the Seanet SCU, allowing a full suite of Tritech sensors to be operated over a single twisted pair or, by using the Tritech MultiComm Junction Box, over an RS232 or fibre optic interface.

The Seanet SCU is supplied with Tritech’s Genesis and Seanet Pro software (which is pre-loaded onto the SCU). This allows for the integration of multiple Tritech sensors, offering a single point of control for all the sensors on the ROV. When running Seanet Pro, each device connected to the Seanet SCU runs in real time in its own window. The display may be varied to show single or multiple windows and this can be altered at any time during normal operations. This multiple sensor capability provides obvious cost benefits as well as reducing the space requirement for consoles in the control room.
