STR and MacArtney have come together once again requesting MacArtney to design and custom build a new NEXUS MK C to compliment the NEXUS MK IV and MK VI systems purchased by STR last year.

The multiplexer systems include full real-time diagnostics such as link status, temperature, optical power and voltages, a seven-inch touchscreen for configuration and operation, an advanced diagnostics GUI (Graphic User Interface), software configurable multi-protocol ports, micro-second latency data and full bandwidth real-time video with no compression and no compromises.

Andy Smith, UK Sales Director, MacArtney Underwater Technology states,

 

"Following the addition last year of several latest generation NEXUS MK IV and MK VI systems and a growing list of
customer and sensor interfacing requirements, we were tasked with developing a new custom solution to
STR’s specification.

Enabling even greater interfacing flexibility while at the same time increasing the user-friendliness and ease of setup
and operation, we are confident these new systems will prove an invaluable asset in enabling STR to support an
ever-increasing variation of subsea sensor integrations with ease.“

 

Developing NEXUS multiplexers for two decades, the MacArtney Group design and manufacture multiplexers and telemetry solutions in-house for interfacing underwater technology systems and applications. Widely used in a variety of subsea applications the Nexus multiplexers provide and sustain a safe and efficient fibre optic link between the surface and seabed.

 

Ka Henney-Cant, Group Business Development & Contracts Executive, STR states,

 

"We are delighted to be provided with the opportunity to work with MacArtney Underwater Technology in developing
our bespoke NEXUS MK C systems.

Following investment in the NEXUS MK IV and MK VI systems in 2018, we were pleased with their performance and
feedback from our global customers. We believe that these bespoke systems will provide our customers with the
industry’s latest technology and deliver cost-effective solutions."

 

The MacArtney Group will always strive to work closely with customers to provide optimal solutions while adhering to the highest standards of service and quality.
