KONGSBERG, NorwayKongsberg Maritime has launched a new high-resolution monochrome CCD camera. The OE15-100D camera is smaller yet has a deeper-rated housing and wider angle of view (AOV) in water than its predecessors.

With near SIT (silicon intensifier target) performance in low-light conditions, an exceptionally wide AOV (102° in water) and a water-corrected optical arrangement that minimizes distortions and aberrations, Kongsberg Maritime says the OE15-100D is suited to mid-water navigation tasks, general observation, situational awareness, and tether monitoring applications.

The OE15-100D camera is available in both CCIR (PAL - 625 line, 50Hz) and EIA RS170A (NTSC - 525 line, 60 Hz) output formats. The internal electronic assembly is protected by a titanium alloy housing, depth rated to 4,500 m (14,764 ft).

The camera measures 86 mm (3.4 in.) in diameter at the widest point and 211 mm (8.3 in.) in length (excluding connector). Its compact dimensions, combined with a weight of just 1.3 kg (2.87 lb) in water, make it suitable for use on all classes of remotely operated vehicles. The camera will accept a wideband input voltage range between 16 and 30V dc, with a maximum current draw of 220 mA.


Kongsberg Maritime’s new OE15-100D camera is now available for offshore operations.
