Kongsberg Maritime is well known for its quality underwater camera lamps and now adds several new models to its already comprehensive portfolio of efficient underwater lamps, floodlights and flashguns that utilise a range of Halogen, HID and LED technologies. The latest additions to this extensive product range are:
The New OE11-145 General Purpose (GP) ROV lamp provides up to 500W illumination. It is an extremely robust and compact design for general ROV and diver held use for video purposes. The light source is a single bright ‘Mini-can' tungsten Halogen bulb, though the lamp accepts a wide range of bulbs. The OE11-145 is designed to be able to act as a direct swap out for existing legacy GP lamps.
The OE11-145 is a compact and powerful underwater LED inspection lamp, which utilises the latest high brightness LEDs, outputting 800 Lux (@ 1m) from 50W power with a wide 68° beam (in water). The low maintenance LEDs also have >50,000 hours of life (if adequately cooled). The New OE11-150F Dye Detection LED lamp is a compact blue LED version for dye/leakage detection.
Introduced recently, the OE11-141 & OE11-143 HID lamps are highly efficient, offering up to five times the light output (up to 5,600 Lux @ 1m light output) compared to conventional filament lamps, whilst still only using the same amount of power.
