Sea-Bird Carousel Auto Fire Module (AFM)
The Sea-Bird Electronics Carousel Auto Fire Module (AFM) is used when an electromechanical cable is unavailable, allowing the user to pre-program the SBE 32 water sampling rosette to fire bottles autonomously based on time or depth. The AFM can be used with or without a CTD.
- 6,800 meter depth rating
- 9 D-size cell batteries provide approximately 60 hours of operation
- RS-232 interface
The AFM is supplied with a powerful Windows 2000/XP software package, Seasoft© V2, which includes:
- SeatermAF — terminal program for easy communication and data retrieval.
- SBE Data Processing — modules for calculation, display, and plotting of temperature, conductivity, pressure, auxiliary sensor data, and derived variables such as salinity and sound velocity
