Kongsberg Maritime, a leading developer of underwater imaging products has launched an all new high resolution monochrome CCD camera. The OE15-100D camera is smaller yet has a deeper rated housing and wider Angle of View (AOV) in water than any of its predecessors, whilst maintaining KONGSBERG’s exceptionally high standard of build and image quality.
With near SIT (Silicon Intensifier Target) performance in low light level conditions, an exceptionally wide AOV (102° in water) and a water corrected optical arrangement that minimises distortions and aberrations, the OE15-100D is ideally suited to mid water navigation tasks, general observation and situational awareness as well as tether monitoring applications.
The OE15-100D camera is available in both CCIR (PAL - 625 line, 50Hz) and EIA RS170A (NTSC - 525 line, 60 Hz) output formats. The highly advanced internal electronic assembly is protected from the harshest of environments by a titanium alloy housing, depth rated to 4500 m.
The OE15-100D camera measures only 86 mm in diameter at the widest point and 211 mm in length (excluding connector). The compact dimensions combined with a weight of just 1.3 kg in water make it suitable for use on all classes of remotely operated vehicles. The camera will accept a wideband input voltage range between 16 and 30V dc, with a maximum current draw of 220mA.
The OE15-100D further enhances Kongsberg Maritime's market leading range of low light monochrome cameras by improving on an already hugely successful platform.
