JW Fishers SeaOtter-2 ROV Metal Detector
Less Powerful, Best Suited to Working in Areas with Low to Medium Currents
The SeaOtter-2 has many of the same features of the SeaLion, but is not as powerful. It is best suited to working in areas with low to medium currents. This ROV also has front and rear facing color cameras with pan and tilt. Illumination for the front camera is provided by two very bright 50 watt tungsten halogen bulbs. Lighting for the rear camera is provided by a ring of high intensity LEDs. The SeaOtter-2 has a 500 foot depth rated housing and comes with 250 feet of cable. System controls are cleanly laid out in a high impact waterproof case with an ultra bright 10.4″ flat screen monitor built into the lid. Command of the ROV’s thrusters, cameras, and lights are managed with a PS2 controller.
Fishers ROVs are completely mobile underwater camera systems that are controlled from the surface and capable of staying submerged indefinitely. These ROVs are ideally suited to a variety of applications including pipeline inspections, river and ocean searches, dam surveys, oil and gas platform work, fish farming, and homeland security operations. They can dramatically reduce search time, as well as the risk and high cost associated with diving operations. Equipped with the RMD-1 remote metal detector the ROV becomes a high tech search system capable of locating weapons, unexploded ordnance, pipelines, buried treasure, and other metal objects.
System controls for the SeaOtter-2 are cleanly laid out in a high impact water proof case with an ultra bright 10.4″ flat screen monitor built into the lid. Command of the ROV’s thrusters, cameras, and lights are managed with a PS-2 controller. A wireless controller can also be used to give the operator even greater freedom. A gentle push on the vertical joystick propels the vehicle down into the depths, and a nudge on the horizontal sends the ROV flying over the ocean floor. The control panel has jacks and amplifiers which make it adaptable to the requirements of each job. A video output jack allows an additional remote monitor to be used simultaneously with the internal flat screen monitor. Other viewers can see the world below without crowding around the control console. An internal video amplifier adjusts picture quality to optimize the video for water clarity. Connect a VCR or DVD recorder and make a permanent record of the underwater scene. With the internal audio amplifier voice can also recorded with the video picture.
Options available on the SeaOtter-2 are: cable lengths up to 500 feet, on-screen display for time/date/GPS/compass heading/depth, auto depth control, DVD recorder, manipulator arm, metal detector, scanning sonar, and spare parts kit (includes extra dome, thruster, light bulbs, etc.)
