Drivers Manual

Klein Marine Systems 2000 - 27

Description

Driver to read image data from a Klein 2000 / Klein 2100 / EdgeTech DF-1000 Sidescan Sonar System.
Driver reads buffered digital input, which is continuously output by the sonar system.
In order for the Qinsy PC to read this data a NuDaq PCI-7200 Digital I/O card must have been installed and configured correctly (see description under Interface Cards).

Decoding Notes

Which channel is decoded is determined by the channel setup of the Sidescan System in DbSetup. For every channel it is required to input a "Slot Id".
This must be set to a unique number which identifies the Channel in the digital data coming form the sidescan system.

The channel Id's (same for both Klein 2x00 and DF-1000):

Channel 0

Port Transducer 100 KHz

Channel 1

Starboard Transducer 100 KHz

Channel 2

Port Transducer 500 KHz

Channel 3

Starboard Transducer 500 KHz

So If you want to decode Port channel 100 KHz, make sure to enter Slot Id: 0.

Interfacing Notes

Klein 2000 Interfacing Notes

This driver requires a special, tailor made I/F cable that connects the PCI-7200 DIO Card port CN2 female 37 p Delta with the Klein 2000 Digital Output Port (also 37 p female Delta).

The cable has the following layout:


to Klein 2000



to PCI 7200


Digital o/p port



dio card


Male 37p Delta



Male 37p Delta

Try to keep the cable length as short as possible, maximum length 6 metres but preferably shorter. Be careful with how you connect the cable, since both ends have the same connector. To prevent accidental swapping, mark the connectors clearly, failing to correctly connect the cable may result in damage to either system!

DF-1000 Interfacing Notes

The DF-1000 systems comes with a PCI I/O card that should be entered into a free PCI slot of the PC.

The schematic overview below shows the connection of the various parts. Most parts originate from EdgeTech; only the items marked with "QPS..." originate from QPS. For more information refer to DF-1000 manual.

The serial Com port of J6 can be used to send commands to and receive status info from the sidescan fish. The "EdgeTech Control Driver" can be used to control the sidescan operational settings, please refer to the chapter on this driver for more details.

Picture above shows top view of opened Qinsy Acquisition PC with the necessary cards inserted. Note also the ribbon cable for the serial control port on the DCI.

Overview of QPS components

QPS-EDG-RIB37

37 Pins ribbon cable 40 pins female PCB header on one end, the other end connects to a 37 pins male delta connector. This delta connector is mounted on a PC-IBMAT-I/O bracket so it can be inserted in a free slot of the acquisition PC. Note that the pins 1-37 should be connected on the PCB header. Pin 1 can be identified by the red marking on the ribbon cable.

QPS-EDG-LOOPB-37

37 pins delta male to 37 pins female delta loop back cable. This cable connects the PCI 7200 Daq Card's 37 pins female connector with the 37 pins male connector of the ribbon cable. Note that this cable is not 1 on 1 wired, the wiring schedule can be found below.

System Configuration

DF-1000 Setup instructions

Jumper settings:

JP2

Set to Continuous output mode

JP10

NMEA/1200 baud (Top Jumper 1-2 attached/bottom 3-4 removed)

All other jumpers can be left to their default settings, they are not relevant.

RD wire bridge should be left to default (--RD)

Database Setup

No options are available for "old" mode.

A sidescan sonar will always be defined as an auxiliary system.

Drivers IO Notes

Command line parameter "DF1000" instructs the driver that the attached system is a EdgeTech DF1000 sidescan (The DF-1000 triggering works different).

Command line parameter "TST46" or TST366 indicates that instead of a "real" Klein 2000 system, the QPS Klein 2000 Simulator has been attached.
The difference between the two is that in the TST46 mode the swathlength of incoming swathlength is set to 46 milliseconds instead of 366 ms.
Make sure that the simulator is connected by the attached ribbon cable and NOT the official Klein 2000 I/F cable.

Command line parameter OLD_HF means driver will work in "old" mode and only decodes the 2 high frequency channels. OLD_LF means : low frequency channels, "old" mode.
