USBL


Parent Item
System:List with all available USBL systems that exist in the current selected QINSy database.
(see  General Layout Information about loading a QINSy database)
Node:List with all available nodes that are attached to the selected USBL system.
Apply C-O:
  • No
  • Yes
    The USBL X, Y and Z value will be corrected for sound velocity, as entered in Db Setup.
    Formula: Corrected XYZ = Raw XYX * (Calibrated / Used sound velocity)

Text Format:

  • Normal Text
    Your own free plain text
  • Binary
    Enter one or more ASCII character codes, comma or space separated, in the range between 1 and 127.
    For example '2' for a binary STX character, '3' for a binary ETX character, or '13, 10' for CR+LF.
    See table ASCII Codes for an overview of all possible characters.

  • New Line
    Same as Binary, but already formatted as '13, 10' (meaning CR+LF) and without a possible Field Delimiter.
    A Field Delimiter may be present when your layout purpose is for Export or ASCII Logging.

Time

Time of the last raw update

X

USBL X Value
Same value as seen in the Raw or Corrected (C-O applied) column of the Observation Physics Display

double




Y

USBL Y Value
Same value as seen in the Raw or Corrected (C-O applied) column of the Observation Physics Display

double

Z

USBL Z Value
Same value as seen in the Raw or Corrected (C-O applied) column of the Observation Physics Display

double



Range

Horizontal distance (grid), or the slant range (3D), between transducer and transponder

double

Range:

  • Horizontal (default)
    Formula: sqrt( dX*dX + dY*dY )
  • Slant
    Formula: sqrt( dX*dX + dY*dY + dZ*dZ )

Age

The difference between the triggering time and the time of the last raw update (see above).
Normally always a positive value in seconds.

From QINSy v8.17 on the calculation of the age value while exporting differs from an online situation:

It will be the difference between the time of the current observation and the previous one.

Formula:

  • Online (Display, Driver, Log File): Age = Triggering time - Observation time
  • Offline (Export): Age = Observation time - Previous observation time
