Camera LWZ


Camera LWZ is Ocean Robotics low weight zoom camera, for use on all types of underwater equipment in need of a capable, small size zoom camera with a multitude of control alternatives.

The camera is electrically isolated to minimize the effect of ground loops and other external interferences. Standard controls include a remote setting of colour temperature of the CCD sensor, to enable matching to different lighting conditions (ie halogen or different wavelength LED lamps). Zoom, focus and backlight compensation are also standard controls.

Virtually weightless in water, the camera is easily placed on any carrier platform, even the smallest of ROV’s. User settable addressing enables up to 4 cameras in the ORI range to be deployed on the same serial link system (CAN/RS485) without any software changes.
