Driver for Simrad Hydroacoustic Position Reference 300 (HPR300) ASCII Format and to be used to decode USBL horizontal range, bearing and depth data, relative between HPR Transducer and Transponder.
Driver can also decode the heading information.
For successful interfacing, the HPR300 system should be set up as follows:
- Turn Print Mode On
- Set Position Coordinates to Polar in the Position, Angle, Print Menu
- Set Orientation to Vessel
HPR Transducer Number in message is ignored. In case of switching over transducers, assign another Node to the HPR system.
Slot numbers must match transponder code (e.g. transponder code = 22, slot number = 22).
To decode the heading, add a "System" of type "Gyro", select the driver, and define the heading parameters.
To decode all four observations (USBL range/bearing/depth and gyro heading), add both these system types to the Qinsy database and make sure to select the same driver name and the same I/O parameters for both systems.
