|44||UNDERWATER INDUCTIVE MODEM - Converts RS-232 telemetry from a variety of instruments (e.g., current meter, tide gauge, ADCP, etc.) to inductive telemetry, for use with other Sea-Bird inductive telemetry system instruments & components. Includes titanium housing (7000 m depth), 6-pin bulkhead connector (AG-306), mounting clamp for jacketed wire rope, lithium battery (non-hazardous), test cable (801434), Seasoft software, & complete documentation. Specify mooring clamp wire size selection to match O.D. of wire jacket.||
Communicating with 1 or more 44s requires use of
Sea-Bird Surface Inductive Modem (SIM) or Inductive Modem Module (IMM), which provides serial interface
(RS-232 or RS-485) between userís computer & up to 100 IM instruments
coupled to single cable. Purchase SIM / IMM & optional Inductive Cable Coupler
Underwater Inductive Modem Module (UIMM) provides a more flexible interface than SBE 44, and is an economical alternative to SBE 44 for RS-232 instruments that have an internal power supply or where you plan to power an RS-232 instrument with an external battery pack.

|SBE 44 Mooring Clamp Wire Size Selections (Specify mooring clamp to match O.D. of wire jacket) -- MUST SELECT ONE|
|44-1a||Wire guide & mounting clamp for 1/4 in. diameter mooring wire||
fits loosely through IM coupling core / wire guide, & is clamped only
at mounting clamp. See document
Thread for clamping to mooring cable:
|44-1b||Wire guide & mounting clamp for 5/16 in. diameter mooring wire|
|44-1c||Wire guide & mounting clamp for 3/8 in. diameter mooring wire|
|44-1d||Wire guide & mounting clamp for 1/2 in. diameter mooring wire|
|44-1e||Wire guide & mounting clamp for 6 mm diameter mooring wire|
|44-1f||Wire guide & mounting clamp for 8 mm diameter mooring wire|
|44-1g||Wire guide & mounting clamp for 10 mm diameter mooring wire|
|44-1h||Wire guide & mounting clamp for 12 mm diameter mooring wire|
|44-1i||Wire guide & mounting clamp for 16 mm (5/8 in.) diameter mooring wire|
|SBE 44 Wet-Pluggable Connector Option|
|44-2||Wet-pluggable (MCBH) bulkhead connector instead of Standard (XSG) connector (includes wet-pluggable test cable)||
Wet-pluggable connectors may be mated in wet conditions. Their pins do not need to be dried before mating. By design, water on connector pins is forced out as connector is mated. However, they must not be mated or un-mated while submerged. Wet-pluggable connectors have a non-conducting guide pin to assist pin alignment (exception: 6-pin connectors) & require less force to mate, making them easier to mate reliably under dark or cold conditions, compared to our standard (Impulse XSG/RMG) connectors. Like standard connectors, wet-pluggables need proper lubrication & require care during use to avoid trapping water in sockets.
|SBE 44 Accessories|
|50442||Red top battery holder (7V nominal, Version 1) (PN 801797) and twelve AA lithium cells (PN 50441), for SBE 37 (SM, SMP, IM, IMP with firmware version < 4.0) and SBE 44||
In July 2008, original battery pack was replaced with new retrofit
battery pack, which uses 12 AA lithium batteries instead of 50243.1
battery set. See
MicroCAT Change Notice and
Application Note 89 for details.
Price for 50442, which includes both battery holder (801797) & batteries (50441), is less than price when ordering battery holder & batteries separately. Sea-Bird is helping to absorb some cost for new battery holders by providing a reduced price.
One set of batteries is included with standard shipment; 50441 are spares. Batteries are easily accessed by removing 2 screws from modem end cap & pulling out end cap. Shipping restrictions apply for lithium batteries; see SBE 44 manual for details.
801797 is battery holder,
|50441||SBE 37 & 44 lithium batteries (spare), package of twelve 3.6V AA cells (Saft LS 14500)|
|801797||Red top battery holder (7V nominal, Version 1) for use with twelve 3.6V AA lithium cells, for SBE 37 (SM, SMP, IM, IMP with firmware version < 4.0) and SBE 44|
|801434||2.4 m test cable, AG-206 to DB-9S (DN 32806)||Connects SBE 44 to computer to test serial communication through SBE 44ís RS-232 bulkhead connector. Cable included with standard shipment if standard connector ordered; this is spare.|
