RDI Doppler BottomTrack Speed (ASCII) (Active) - 30


Driver with user-interface to decode bottom track velocity and direction from an ASCII output data ensemble from an RD Instruments (RDI) Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) that is configured as a Doppler Velocity Log (DVL).

The driver returns the horizontal velocity ( Speed ) along with its direction ( Angle ) (and/or Bearing True). When decoding the PD6 message, vertical velocity is also returned.

Three different ASCII output formats are supported:

  1. PD6
  2. Remote Cherry
  3. VmDas NMEA

For more information about these formats, see their entries in the Drivers Manual under Speed Log.
