D Squared Electronic Solutions (D2ES) have recently launched the 'PS2 USB ROV Tooling Controller'. The unit allows control of a various array of tools attached to your ROV, from 5-function manipulators, pan and tilt units to boom arms and cutters using an off the shelf Logitech PS2 style gamepad.

Can easily be incorporated to an existing control system leaving the original control method operational.
Supplied with both a wired and a wireless USB Logitech controller giving up to 10m range.

There are 2 modes of operation that cover every tooling need:

• The 'MAIN' mode is used for a standard configuration, controlling a single 5-function manipulator and 2 pan and tilt units.
• The 'AUX' mode gives the user full control, allowing you to easily program any tooling function to the control pad.

Both modes have separate banks of outputs allowing you to switch between various tools using the one controller.

The unit also incorporates a couple of handy features:

• It has an 'Invert' feature that allows you to invert the vertical axis of the manip and pan and tilt units. This is to accomodate different preferences, I for one like the vertical axis inverted where I know others do not.
• It also has a 'Jaw Semi-lock' Feature. This feature automatically locks the manip jaws. To unlock a 'Jaw Unlock' button has to be depressed whilst operating the jaw. This prevents accidental operation.

Please take the time to see a video of the controller being used on an ROV system by following the link below:
