Ocean Innovations is pleased to announce that it has supplied a mini work class ROV to Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The H2000 ROV, manufactured by DOER Marine, is a very capable system with powerful hydraulic thrusters and high bandwidth fiber optic cable. The vehicle was equipped with a five-function DOER SeaMantis manipulator, Matrix LED lights from DSPL, three video cameras, and a BlueView multi-beam sonar.
Scripps intends to use the vehicle on its fleet of ocean going vessels for retrieving lost instruments, collecting samples, and other scientific tasks. With its 2000meter depth rating, 160 lb payload capacity and 327 lbs of forward thrust, the H2000 will be up to the job. A key feature for Scripp’s is the vehicle’s instrument manifold that is pre-wired for RS-232, RS-485, and ethernet allowing easy addition of additional sensors.
