represents everything a compact ROV should
be. Equipped with high performance thrusters,
hi-res color camera, low light black and
white camera, 150 meters of umbilical,
auto functions and more the LBV150S has
more features making it that much easier
to operate and more capable.
with the LBV150S system is the LBV150
ROV. The vehicle itself is the heart of
the whole system. It is designed to be
rugged with its five (5) isolated pressure
vessels, integrated backbone assembly,
and protective shell.
for the LBV150 is the backbone which is
comprised of the front main housing, rear
power can and back plane. All these items
are integral and form what we call the
backbone assembly. Then the thrusters,
flotation module, protective shell and
ballast tray are connected to form the
complete LBV. The design allows for simple
in field maintenance and repairs.
added features include six (6) accessory
ports, vacuum check valve for seal integrity,
various leak detectors, stream line design
and easily adjusted ballast.
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.
