The VideoRay Pro 3 GTO Professional ROV System (PAL) is a remote-operated underwater video system designed for demanding professionals who require increased power for challenging commercial applications. The system consists of an advanced Pro 3 control panel, 100 m Standard Tether and a Pro 3 GTO (Greater Thrust Option) submersible rigged with front and rear video cameras, integrated sensors and lighting equipment. The Pro 3 GTO submersible has two brushed thrusters for horizontal propulsion and one for vertical propulsion. With a maximum speed of 4.1 knots and a 500' depth rating, the Pro 3 GTO submersible was designed for ROV operators who depend upon enhanced power to get the job done.
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. 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 GTO submersible and its surface control panel is a 100 m Standard Tether. It has a 10 mm diameter, neutral buoyancy and is wrapped in bright yellow polyurethane that's rent tolerant up to 1000 lb. The tether acts as an avenue for control signals and power voltage - maxing out at 48 V DC. It facilitates top-side operation of the remote-operated underwater vehicle, which could be hundreds of feet below the surface of the water.
The Pro 3 control panel features a considerable 15" color display monitor for viewing the video feed from the Pro 3 GTO submersible. The control panel affords accurate operation via an 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. The control panel also comes in its own watertight case and an added convenience, the entire Pro 3 GTO Professional ROV System packs into one portable, hard-shell, watertight and durable Pelican 1620 Case with a custom interior.
