Modem-M64

Description

The Modem M64 is a two-way half-duplex 64bps acoustic modem with a robust and user configurable data link.

The M64 sets a new market standard with its record-breaking physical size, low power requirement and cost. All this combined with a very useful technical specification, the M64 opens new possibilities for underwater communication in both existing and new areas.

Key specifications

  • Two-way communication

  • 64 bit per second net data link, both ways

  • Latency 1.5 – 2.5 sec

  • 200 meter range
