is a simple yet extremely effective inshore
inspection system. The system is packed
with features like four (4) powerful thrusters,
auto heading, auto depth, video overlay,
270 degree field of vision, hi-res color
camera, 75 meters of 7.6mm diameter umbilical,
intuitive control console, variable input
power supply, transportation cases, spares
LBV has been designed to be rugged in harsh
environments so you can focus on the work
and not on the servicing and maintenance.
comprised of five (5) isolated pressure
vessels; main housing and four (4) thrusters.
At the core of these vessels is the main
housing which is tied to the rear power
can via a conduit tube. The acrylic view
port is housed between two (2) hard anodized
aluminum end caps and have three (3) accessory
ports and a vacuum check valve. The power
can is a hard anodized aluminum tube between
two (2) glass filled Delrin end caps where
the umbilical is connected. There is a
single extra accessory port on the power
can also. This whole assembly is potted
to the back plane comprising what we call
the backbone assembly.
directly to the back plane are each of
the four (4) thrusters. Each thruster
is identical in design and can be mounted
in any of the four (4) positions. By maintaining
an isolated design should any one of the
thrusters or the main housing flood the
other pressure vessels are safe. Simply
identify the flooded component, replace
it and you are back in business.
to the backbone is the flotation module.
The flotation is a moulded shell that
is injected with foam. Density of foam
varies depending on depth rating.
all additional components are mounted
including the outer protective shell,
ballast tray and bumper frame. The entire
design offers a streamlined profile that
is rugged and easy to work on.
