- Business & Finance
Bowtech Products, a provider of subsea vision systems, has released the Pioneer multipurpose underwater camera with LEDs.
The Bowtech products Pioneer is a high resolution underwater colour CCD camera with six integral high intensity LEDs. It provides a solution to general underwater viewing observation, down to 4,000 metres ocean depth.
Measuring only 53mm diameter and 78.8mm in length (excl. connector), the camera is suited for observation of tooling and manipulator tasks. The fully controllable integral LEDs re-move the requirement for separate lights where space is restricted.
Lighting control is factory set as either Analogue 0-5V, Analogue 0-10V, Tristate, RS-485, or Power cycle.
The camera is enclosed within a titanium housing, rated to 4,000 metres operating depth. The camera is fitted with a fixed focus wide angle lens, giving a 57o diagonal angle of view in water through a sapphire window. The camera features in-built reverse polarity protection.
The miniature 1/3” sensor offers 720TVL high resolution and low light level sensitivity.
The Pioneer is also available as a monochrome version with improved low light level sensitivity.
