EAST TAUNTON, MA, APRIL 10, 2020 -- Since the late 1980s, JW Fishers’ Remote Operated Vehicles (ROV) have been critical tools used across the globe for various missions from the routine to the extraordinary. JWF’s SeaOtter and SeaLion ROV Systems are often used to locate drowning victims with attached sonar systems, to search a ship lost at sea, or to conduct inspections on submerged tanks, dams, and water intake pipes. JW Fishers Mfg., Inc. has been providing operators with top of the line ROV systems for over thirty years and continues to outperform the competition.
The SeaLion-2 comes standard with 4 high performance motors, a 1,000’ (300m) depth rated housing, front and rear facing camera both with pan and tilt functionality, and an On-Screen Display (OSD) of basic time, date, and GPS coordinates. Illumination is provided by 4400 lumen LED bulbs and a 15” ultra-bright LCD monitor is seamlessly displayed in the system’s splash-proof Pelican® case. More thrust is available with a “power boost” feature that provides the ROV with an extra burst of speed for a few seconds when it encounters heavier than normal currents. The additional payload allows the SeaLion-2 to be fitted with various options such as a SCAN650 sector scanning sonar system, a manipulator arm, scientific research equipment, or and RMD-1 remote metal detector.
The SeaOtter-2 comes with the same features as the SeaLion-2, but is instead rated to withstand depths up to 500’ (150m). The “power boost” feature is also not available for the SeaOtter-2. Ideally, the SeaOtter-2 is suited for low current applications including piling inspections, lake searches, tank inspections, dam inspections, and water intake inspections. When in its element, the SeaOtter-2 is an incredibly powerful tool for any operator needing reliability and efficiency in their underwater search.
