HYSWEEP driver for the IXSEA Octans motion sensor.  Provides heave, pitch, roll, and heading data.

 

Connection:

Network TCP interface, standard Octans message format.

 

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:  Usually 0 for pitch and roll devices.

 

Offsets – Gyro (Heading)

  • Starboard, Forward, Vertical: Enter 0.
  • Yaw:  Enter offset if any.
  • Pitch, Roll:  Enter 0.
  • Latency:  Usually 0 for heading devices.

 

Notes:

The Octans must be configured to output the ZDA message to properly timestamp data.  The driver will throw an error if it doesn't see ZDA after 10 seconds.
