Auxiliary Camera

The SEAMOR Marine Auxiliary Camera is an easily- installed and re-positionable full standard definition colour or black and white camera. This accessory opens up a world of new possibilities for ROV pilots. Being able to view a different angle, behind the ROV, or close-up on a manipulator will provide even more reliable information for pilots to operate and maneuver their vehicles.

The same rugged and durable design that SEAMOR put into its ROVs has been incorporated into the Auxiliary Camera. All aspects of the camera are pressure tested to 600 metres. The entire unit is serviceable by SEAMOR or an authorized dealer. In contrast to other companies’ cameras which cannot be repaired, the SEAMOR Auxiliary Camera can be repaired – a 1-year limited warranty on failed parts is provided, and further servicing can be specifically targeted to the segment affected, such as the electronics or the camera, without having to repair the entire unit.
