The RS-232 cable must have two-way direction, both receiving (Rx) and transmitting (Tx) data.

Driver will send annotation commands to the unit (and fish position for Klein 2000) and will receive the altitude data.

Database Setup

For the Towfish Heading field a heading observation should be defined.
First, add a "Gyro's and compasses" system to the database and select the "Klein2000 SSS Heading (With Annotation)" driver, using the same I/O interfacing parameters as with the ROV Depth and Altitude driver.
Press "Next" button to define the properties of the true bearing observation.

For the Temperature and Sonar Range Setting fields generic observations should be defined.
First, add a "Miscellaneous system" system to the database and select the "Klein2000 SSS Info (With Annotation)" driver, using the same I/O interfacing parameters as with the ROV Depth and Altitude driver.
Press "Next" button to define the properties of the generic observations.
The slot number should be 1 for the Sonar Range Setting and 2 for the Temperature field.

For the Towfish Pitch and Towfish Roll fields a "Pitch, roll and heave sensor" system should be defined.
Add a "Pitch, roll and heave sensor" system to the database and select the "Klein2000 SSS VRU R-P (With Annotation)" driver, using the same I/O interfacing parameters as with the ROV Depth and Altitude driver.
Press "Next" button to define the properties of the pitch & roll observations.
