Fishers ROVs are completely mobile underwater camera systems that are controlledfrom the surface and capable of staying submerged indefinitely. These ROVs are ideally suited to a variety of applications including pipeline inspections, river and ocean searches, dam surveys, oil and gas platform work, fish farming, and homeland security operations. They can dramatically reduce search time, as well as the risk and high cost associated with diving operations. Equipped with the RMD-1 remote metal detector the ROV becomes a high tech search system capable of locating weapons, unexploded ordnance, pipelines, buried treasure, and other metal objects.
The SeaLion-2 is Fishers top-of the-line ROV. It has four high performance motors that make it faster than the SeaOtter-2. In addition, even more thrust isavailable with a Power Boost feature that provides the ROV with an extra burst of speed when heavier currents are encountered. Other advantages are a 1,000' (305 meters) depth rated housing and the ability to operate with cable lengths up to 1,500' (457 meters). Other features include front and rear facing color cameras with pan and tilt. Illumination for the front camera is provided by two powerful 100 watt tungsten halogen bulbs. Lighting for the rear camera is provided by a ring of high intensity LEDs
System controls for the Sealion-2 are cleanly laid out in a high impact water proof case with an ultra bright 15" (38 cm) flat screen monitor built into the lid. Command of the ROV's thrusters, cameras, and lights are managed with a PS-2controller. A wireless controller can also be used to give the operator even greater freedom. A gentle push on the vertical joystick propels the vehicle downinto the depths, and a nudge on the horizontal sends the ROV flying over the ocean floor. The control panel has jacks and amplifiers which make it adaptable to the requirements of each job. A video output jack allows an additional remotemonitor to be used simultaneously with the internal flat screen monitor. Other viewers can see the world below without crowding around the control console. An internal video amplifier adjusts picture quality to optimize the video for waterclarity. Connect a VCR or DVD recorder and make a permanent record of the underwater scene. With the internal audio amplifier voice can also recorded withthe video picture.
The SeaLion-2 comes equipped with a 250' (76 meter) standard cable a front and rear CCD color 570 line .3 LUX cameras that have 90 degree pan and tilt capabilities allowing 140 degrees of total viewing area, with 4 mm 50 degree wide angle lenses. Power to maneuver the ROV is supplied by four DC PM type reversible, variable speed proportional controlled 7+lbs (3.2+ kg) thrust per motors, with top speed of 4 knots. The SeaLion-2 requires 120 Volts AC, 8 Amps with 900 Watts Maximum Power to operate. The five separate housings are sealed by O-rings and each has a separate leak detector circuitry and the motors use "no maintenance" rotary seals.
Options available on the SeaLion-2 are: cable lengths up to 1,500' (457 meters),on-screen display for time/date/GPS/compass heading/depth/distance from bottom, 2 color side camera (making a total of 4 cameras), auto depth control, auto distance from bottom, auto heading, control of ROV from a computer, DVD recorder, manipulator arm, metal detector, scanning sonar, and spare parts kit (includes extra dome, thruster, light bulbs, etc.).
