The ICC is a link in Sea-Bird’s inductive modem (IM) telemetry systems. The ICC is used in applications where the plastic-jacketed wire termination is grounded to seawater (at a chain, for example). The ICC clamps to the jacketed mooring wire, and makes electrical connection with the Inductive Modem Module (IMM) or Surface Inductive Modem (SIM) via a cable housed in reinforced-rubber conduit. The conduit’s upper end is fixed to the buoy hull with the provided clamps. The conduit/cable must be long enough to prevent buoy motion from pulling it completely straight and putting tension on the ICC.
An IM telemetry system typically includes:
PRINCIPLES OF INDUCTIVE COUPLING
A transformer has two or more coils that share a magnetic field. Materials such as ferrite can be used to form a transformer core that ensures the necessary sharing of magnetic fields.
When using the ICC with Sea-Bird’s IM telemetry system, the ends of the mooring cable are grounded to the seawater. This causes a current to flow through the mooring wire and seawater. The ICC senses this current, providing a voltage for presentation to the IMM or SIM.
