Overview

The Autonomous Unit allows the user to power the microscope and store image data in deployments where direct connection to the computer is not available

Benefits

Autonomous Recordings
Allows for the autonomous recording of holograms when connected to the Submersible microscope. Contains battery and 250 GiB SSD (can be expanded in custom configurations) to support hours of data storage

Autonomous module can be controlled via fiberoptic connection, or pre-programmed to perform the recordings at specific times and intervals

Connect Remotely
Contains gigabit single mode fiberoptic connection that allow you to control microscope remotely from miles away, download holograms or previews to the host computer

Deployment Versatility
Can be deployed together with Submersible Microscope
Can be placed on a vertical profiler
Can be deployed on an AUV

Go Deeper
Deployment depth down to 2000 meters
