The JW Fisher SeaOtter-2 is the next generation of Fisher’s very popular SeaOtter ROV. With pan and tilt cameras in both front and rear, it is perfect for pipeline inspections, river and ocean searches, dam inspections, oil and gas platform work, fish farms, oceanographic research, an inspection of hazardous sites, and almost every type of underwater search or inspection operation. This ROV can dramatically reduce search time and the high costs associated with diver-based inspections. With the SeaOtter-2, your team can locate, inspect, and videotape a target without entering the water. The SeaOtter can also narrow the search area so when divers are required, their time is spent on the target instead of swimming grid patterns. When outfitted with a metal detector (JW Fishers RMD-1), the ROV can search for weapons, unexploded ordnance, pipelines, anchors, buried treasure, or other metallic objects.
Control box cover with built-in monitor can be removed for custom positioning or mounting.
The SeaOtter-2 sends its video picture to a topside 10.4-inch high-resolution ultra-bright color monitor which is built into the Control Box cover. Video output in the Control Box allows an additional remote monitor to be used simultaneously. An adjustable video amplifier on the Control Panel allows operator adjustment of the video picture to optimize picture quality for water clarity. A DVR recorder can be connected to the Control Box to make a permanent record. The Control Box also contains an audio amplifier with an input jack on the Control Panel for audio recording.
The Control Panel also contains an LCD readout that displays the overall status of the system.
The ROV has a sophisticated four motor propulsion system; two motors for forward and reverse, and two motors for vertical and lateral thrust. All motors are reversible and operate at variable speeds. An off-the-shelf PS2 controller (supplied) controls the system. A joystick controls the horizontal motors (forward/reverse and turning) – it can hover “in place” and rotate 360 degrees; and the second joystick controls the vertical motors (up/down and lateral movement). A wireless PS2 controller can also be used.
Illumination is provided by two 2200 lumen, high-intensity LEDs for the front camera and an “ultra-bright” LED cluster for the rear camera.
At 43 pounds, the ROV is highly portable and very “user-friendly.” With the optional spare parts kit, the ROV is completely field maintainable. The carrying case is included. JW Fishers SeaOtter-2 ROV system represents a breakthrough in cost/performance for a commercial-grade ROV. This high-performance system competes with systems more than twice the price. The SeaOtter-2 is backed by Fishers 2 year exclusive, UNCONDITIONAL warranty.
The system has two color cameras (front and back) with a 4mm wide-angle lens. The camera’s 90-degree tilt allows a full 140-degree vertical viewing. The camera’s 90-degree pan allows an additional 140 degrees of horizontal viewing. Pushbuttons on the PS2 control both pan and tilt. Camera selection, front or back, is operator selectable from the Control Panel.
Fishers ROVs are in use worldwide by US and foreign military, state and federal agencies, universities, search and rescue groups, and many commercial diving companies. These high-performance underwater camera systems can make public safety search operations less dangerous by assisting in the location of drowning victims and recovery of evidence. They help eliminate the need to dive in difficult or dangerous conditions, whether it be a low visibility environment or a dive beyond no-decompression limits.
