FAQ / Subsea navigation / Question

I’ve noticed 3 LEDs flashing red, orange and green inside the DVL electronics. Is it normal or does it shows some trouble?

It is usually no reason to expose the electronics, but in some occations it is necessary and for OEM systems it is unavoidable. This FAQ is mainly written for DVL OEM systems, but the content applies to the Signatures and DVLs also.

The board stack on the Signature and DVL consists of three boards (+ the sensor board), and two of them have LEDs to indicate their state.
