-OFFSHORE HYBALL shares all of the unique features that have made Hyball so successful but with the added benefit of increased power. This was achieved by a redesign of the power modules to provide more efficient switch mode supplies to the thrusters and an increase in the size of the power module transformers. The surface unit power supplies and wiring are also up-rated. In addition the video circuitry has been improved as have the lighting circuits. Remote focus has been added for the video camera and all of the ROV circuit boards have been improved. Finally we have added interfaces for sonar, manipulator and a CP probe as standard. These are available as options for Hyball.

-Both Offshore Hyball and Hyball share the unique feature of a patented meridian view port that allows the internally mounted camera(s) to tilt and view through 360 degrees. Panning of the camera is achieved by rotating the vehicle, which can turn on its own axis. This combination of camera movement and vehicle manoeuvrability provides you with the ideal remote controlled subsea video inspection package. In both ROVs we provide you with the very latest in colour video cameras for unbeatable video quality. Currently we use a JVC 470 line resolution, 0.95 lux colour CCD camera with an F 0.8 Pentax lens and remote focus as the standard camera.

We try to provide the most up to date, recent specifications on these ROV systems. However, ROV system specifications are changing all the time, so please double check with the manufacturer to insure the specifications are correct before making a decision in using or purchasing these systems.
