Provides heave, pitch, roll and heading via a network interface.


Setup Form:

The driver takes in data at 100 Hz.  Even in the most extreme pitch and roll condition, 25 Hz sampling should be sufficient and you can decrease file size by selecting the 25 Hz option.



Network connection.  Use 3000 for network port and the default internet address of  The F180 address is and your network card must have an address that will receive data ( for example)


Offsets – MRU (Pitch/Roll):

  • Starboard:  MRU location starboard of boat center.
  • Forward: MRU location forward of boat center.
  • Vertical: MRU location relative to waterline (positive below).
  • Yaw, Pitch, Roll:  MRU rotations relative to forward and vertical.
  • Latency:  Enter 0.


Offsets – Gyro (Heading)

  • Enter 0 for all.



  • When using this driver in HYSWEEP, it is likely the F180 network driver will be used in HYPACK survey.  The F180 driver requires a 1PPS box for time synchronization.
  • To use delayed heave, start logging in the F180 controller at least 10 minutes before any HYPACK / HYSWEEP logging.  When finished surveying, use the F180 option to stop logging after iHeave delay.  The *.CSV files are used for heave corrections; *.MCOM files may be deleted.
