SeatermV2© is a terminal program
launcher for interfacing with Sea-Bird
instruments developed or redesigned in 2006 and later. The common feature of
this generation of instruments is the ability to output status responses in XML. SeatermV2
can be used with the following instruments:
16plus V2 SeaCAT C-T Recorder
(version 2.0 or later firmware)
with RS-232 or RS-485 interface --
Note: The RS-485 version firmware for the 16plus V2 is not available
SeaCAT C-T Recorder (version 2.0 or later firmware) with Inductive Modem
(version 2.0 or later firmware) SeaCAT Profiler
37-SI (all version 3.0
or later firmware) MicroCAT and
37-SIP-IDO MicroCAT, with RS-232 or RS-485 interface
37-IM (all version
3.0 or later firmware) MicroCAT and
37-IMP-IDO MicroCAT, with Inductive Modem interface
54 or PN 90588 Tsunameter
56 Temperature Logger
63 Optical Dissolved Oxygen
SeatermV2 launches one of the following
terminal programs, depending on the communication protocol required for the
- Seaterm232 -- for instruments that
communicate via RS-232
- Seaterm485 -- for instruments that
communicate via RS-485
- SeatermIM -- for instruments that
communicate via Inductive Modem telemetry
- SeatermUSB -- for instruments that
communicate via USB telemetry
The terminal programs can send commands to
the instrument to provide status display, data acquisition setup, data
retrieval, and diagnostic tests. Data uploaded with the terminal programs can be
processed with the post-processing software in Seasoft V2 (SBE Data Processing).
Note: SBE Data processing cannot process data from the SBE 56 Temperature
Logger, or SBE 54 or PN 90588
There is no manual for these terminal
programs, but their use is
covered in the instrument manuals and in the Help menus.
SeatermV2 was designed to work with
a PC running Win XP Service pack 2 or later, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.
