Digital CP Probes
The OceanTools DigiCP is an innovative product that combines a traditional CP probe with modern digital electronics.
The system may be supplied with both Contact and Proximity probes. Unlike conventional CP systems, the DigiCP digitises the analogue CP
voltage subsea and transmits it to the surface via a twisted pair in the ROV umbilical or via a data multiplexer.
The subsea unit comprises either a contact probe or a proximity probe with a 3m cable plus a subsea housing containing the
conversion electronics. Units are available in 1000m, 2000m and 3000m depth ratings. RS232 and RS485 data is simultaneously
available from the DigiCP. On the surface, the data is displayed on a simple Windows application. The data may also be outputted to a data logger or to, for example, an OceanTools VO4W video overlay unit.
