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.
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.
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.
