Rowe Adds New DVL to SeaPILOT Line
Posted by Irina Tabakina
Rowe Technologies launched a new Doppler Velocity Log (DVL) for the SeaPILOT product line. The SeaPILOT OC (Observation Class) is the result of collaboration with several small ROV manufacturers to provide a compact, high performance DVL, designed specifically for observation/inspection class ROVs. The OC is small (5-in. [127mm] wide x 6-in. [152mm] tall and 8-in. [203mm] ), lightweight (~1 lb [0.45 Kg] in water), is rated for 300m operating depths, and is available in 1,200KHz and 600KHz operating frequencies. To ease integration, the OC supports several input and output data formats and is compatible with a number of third-party control and navigation software packages.
