[1] Slant range estimation is based on the measured time delay, slant range accuracy depends on sound velocity profile, refraction and signal-to-noise ratio.

[2] See the S2CR 18/34 USBL Product Information for available standard interface combinations.

[3] User-configurable Listen Mode is only available with a Wake-Up module installed. Power consumption in Listen Mode depends on Listen Mode settings.

[4] Power consumption for the RS-232 interface option. Add 500 mW for the Ethernet interface option.
