SPECIFICATIONS

With high accuracy (0.1°) joint positioning and our master/slave topside controller, the Alpha and Bravo ranges of rotators are a must for operators in the new era of close inspection work and complex intervention. Features include:

  • Built for harsh environments – 300m Depth Rating
  • Corrosion and scratch resistant anodized aluminium
  • Active Compliance – enables safe lifting of unbalanced, heavy objects and optimises stability of the ROV
  • Overcurrent protection
  • Undervoltage/overvoltage protection.

PAN & TILT

Reach System underwater rotators are lightweight, tough, and proven on numerous subsea platforms operating in the field. They are suitable for cameras, sonars, and vectoring thrusters. Alpha and Bravo actuators feature active joint compliance which provides self-protection against impact. Other features include:

  • 0.1° position measurement.
  • Accurate position or velocity control.
  • 300m depth rating.

ROTATOR MOUNTING KIT

Integration Made Easy

For customers looking for simple ROV integration, we highly recommend adding the Alpha or Bravo mounting kit to your order. We’ve designed these interfaces with a screw collar for easy deployment and storage of our underwater robotic grabbers.
