The SeaKing AUV/ ROV side scan sonar system utilises Tritech’s DST (Digital Sonar Technology) and is an extremely compact and cost effective high definition side scan sonar. The SeaKing AUV/ ROV side scan sonar has been designed for a wide range of ROV seabed survey and inspection duties.
The SeaKing AUV/ ROV side scan sonar is supplied as separate transducers and an electronics module for integration into ROV and AUV underwater systems.
As part of Tritech’s SeaKing range of sonars, sensors it is possible to run the now retired SeaKing towfish with other SeaKing sensors over one communication link. All products in the SeaKing family (or third-party products within the ARCNET communications link), can be run simultaneously, using the same processor and display; such as the Surface Control Unit (SCU) or a customer supplied PC or laptop. In addition to the display of side scan sonar data, the system will take position input from DGPS. This information is recorded with the side scan sonar data to allow a 'fix' of a target.

This is nearly always an issues with the RS232 ground which is usually missing. Check for continuity on the copper sections between each end of the cable.
On the small change it is not then it a RS485 device connected to an RS232 port.
