DYNICE® - DATA

Brand: DynIce

DynIce® Data is unique Patent pending fibre rope with a central copper conductor and dense copper screen to protect the signal from interference.

 

The line is made for both winch drums and traction winces and is suitable for scientific research where data transfer or control of tools is needed.

PRODUCT DETAILS

DYNICE® DATA - LIGHTWEIGHT DATA TRANSFER CABLE FOR DEEP SEA OPERATIONS

 

A coaxial data transfer cable with central copper conductor and screen enclosed in a DynIce® Dux rope. Specially designed for data transfer from trawl headline sonars where high loads are on the cable while signal is sent or data retrieved.

 

The cable is also very suitable for deep sea research vessels using drum winches.

 

The production process is unique and patent pending. The construction is based on copper centre conductor with dense screen of copper filaments to protect from electromagnetic waves. The data cable can also be used as high strength single phase conductor.

BEHAVIOUR OF HEADLINE CABLE DURING TOWING

Dynice Data - Forces in head line cable

There are three main forces acting on the head line cable

One is the sinking weight of the cable in sea, another is the drag of the cable itself and the third is the pulling force on the headline sonar which is fixed to the trawl.

Dynice Data - Suitable Pulling Force

When the pulling force is suitably adjusted the headline cable is taut and if steel wire is used it will slope bit down due to the weight.

DynIce® Data will have similar slope but in the opposite and upward direction.

Dynice Data - Pulling Force

If there is a slack in the headline cable the steel wire falls down, it can touch the warps during turning and even fall into or below the trawl and damage it the warps.

DynIce® Data, due to its lightness will be pushed upwards by the drag and stay above the warps and the trawl.

Schools of fish in front of the trawl are therefore not cut through by the headline cable leading to reduced catch.

DynIce® Data was first taken into use by the Faroese trawler Trondur i Gøta.

 

The length of the cable on the headline cable winch is 2.700 m.

 

According to captain Frits Thomsen the picture on the screen is sharp and the quality of the signal excellent.

The DynIce® Data cable has been in use on the trawler Gudmundur VE 29.

 

The length installed is 1.000 meters.

 

Captain Sturla Einarsson tells that the cable is a brilliant product and during trawling near the surface the DynIce® Data stayed above the surface until few meters in front of the sonar and did therefore not disturb the fish coming in.
