The VideoRay Pro 3 XE Professional ROV System (NTSC) is a remote-operated underwater video system designed for demanding commercial applications. The system consists of an advanced Pro 3 control panel, 100 m Standard Tether and a Pro 3 submersible rigged with front and rear video cameras, integrated sensors and lighting equipment. The Pro 3 submersible has two brushed thrusters for horizontal propulsion and one for vertical propulsion. With a maximum speed of 2.6 knots and a 500' depth rating, the Pro 3 submersible was designed to meet the challenges of professional commercial applications.
There are front and rear cameras mounted inside the submersible's central pressure hull. Optimized for underwater use, the forward facing color camera has 570 lines of resolution, 160° of variable tilt and a wide angle lens that provides 90° horizontal and 140° diagonal viewing angles. In darker water, the camera's field of vision is ameliorated by dual 20W, high-efficiency halogen lamps. Conveniently, each lamp's incandescence can be adjusted with the Variable Intensity Control. The rear facing, high-resolution black and white camera has 430 lines of resolution and a narrower field of vision, which is accommodated by a high-intensity LED array that provides a ring of illumination.
The link between the Pro 3 submersible and its surface control panel is a 100 m Standard Tether, which is pulled in and out via the Standard Capacity Tether Deployment System. The Standard Tether has a 10 mm diameter, neutral buoyancy and is wrapped in bright yellow polyurethane that's rent tolerant up to 1000 lb. It acts as an avenue for commands, controls, video signals and power voltage - maxing out at 48 V DC. It is the only line of contact and connection between the surface-operated control panel and a remote-operated underwater vehicle. This demands strength and reliability from every VideoRay tether.
The Pro 3 control panel features an impressive 15" color display monitor, integrated joystick and depth control knob, which can manually adjust camera focus, change camera tilt, program depth settings and change lighting intensity. The Pro 3 control panel also has mini-LCD displays for reading depth, compass heading and the cumulative hour meter. There is a Third Axis Joystick Control that can be selected for various operations and an analog composite video output as well. The control panel comes in a self-containing, watertight case and as an added convenience, the entire Pro 3S Professional ROV System packs into one portable, hard-shell, watertight and durable Pelican 1620 Case with a custom interior.
