  Motorised Zoom Lens Helps Improves Underwater Vision

Resolve Optics has developed a variant of its Model 207 miniature motorised zoom lens enabling a manufacturer of remotely operated vehicles (ROV’s) to help improve the deep sea welding capability of their system.

Motorised Zoom Lens Helps Improves Underwater Vision

Traditionally underwater welding repair to secure the integrity of pipes and other marine structures has been carried out by diving welders.  To carry out such tasks these highly trained individuals face the perils of deep water and because of poor visibility welding joint quality has often been variable. For these reasons remotely operated vehicles have become increasingly popular for underwater welding projects....


  Fixed Focus Thermal Imaging Lenses
