Communicating with the Sounder S500
The Cerulean Sounder S500 features 3 hardware connection options.
• Ethernet (100Mb/sec)
• USB (12Mb/sec)
• 3.3V Serial (115kbaud).
After each power up, all interfaces are polled. The first one to send a valid packet is selected as the host, and the remaining interfaces are disabled.
API Compatibility: S500 communication uses a binary packet format compatible with the Blue Robotics Ping-Protocol.
API Documentation: Please see Appendix F for the definitions of the officially supported packet formats. These packet types are recommended for new applications targeting the S500 sounder.
Network connections: IP address can be set using SonarView device discovery. Communicate via UDP connection.
