Bowtech Products Ltd, a global market leader in subsea vision systems, is delighted to release the Pioneer multipurpose underwater camera with LEDs.

The Bowtech products Pioneer is a high resolution underwater colour CCD camera with six integral high intensity LEDs. It provides a cost effective solution to general underwater viewing observation, down to 4,000 metres ocean depth.

Measuring only 53mm diameter and 78.8mm in length (excl. connector), the camera is ideally suited to observation of tooling and manipulator tasks. The fully controllable integral LEDs remove the requirement for separate lights where space is restricted.

Lighting control is factory set as either Analogue 0-5V, Analogue 0-10V, Tristate, RS-485, or Power cycle

The camera is enclosed within a high quality titanium housing, rated to 4,000 metres operating depth. The camera is fitted with a fixed focus wide angle lens, giving a 57o diagonal angle of view in water through a sapphire window which is highly scratch resistant and 99.8% optically pure. The camera features in-built reverse polarity protection.

The miniature, high specification 1/3 sensor offers 720TVL high resolution and excellent low light level sensitivity.

The Pioneer is also available as a monochrome version with improved low light level sensitivity.
