Posted on 01.11.2004 - 02:06 UTC in INSPECTION NEWS (Subsea) by Rons_ROV_Links
Tritech International Ltd of Aberdeen, producers of world class tools and sensors, have added an interesting new camera to their comprehensive range of subsea video products.
The all new ManipCam is specifically designed to enhance manipulative tasks on work class Remotely Operated Vehicles. ManipCam is a solid state, high resolution colour camera with two integrated high intensity light emitting diodes. It is intended for simple mounting on the forearm of most types of manipulator.
ManipCam will produce extremely high resolution pictures very close to the work site. A significant advance is the lighting feedback sensor system which automatically adjusts the level of lighting to provide optimum picture quality, regardless of the reflectivity of the work surface. However both the lighting and focus may also controlled from the surface if necessary. The ManipCam is designed to withstand the considerable shock loads to which it is likely to be frequently subjected. Mr Andy Brown, Tritech’s Video Project Engineer said’ The ManipCam is so rugged you could play football with it although it is not a very convenient shape for that!’
