Aquabotix 03-ENDURA-100WI overview

  • 1Description

Explore the world beneath the water's surface without getting wet, using the Aquabotix Endura 100WI Mini ROV for Water Inspection. This edition of the remote-operated vehicle is well-suited to checking water supplies and tanks. It can also be used in the study of marine life and environments, as well as the examination of the undersides of boats and the execution of search-and-recovery missions.

This ROV is submersible to 328' and provides a Full HD 1080/24p live video feed to the surface. It also features video recording and photo capture. It ships without the required tether/cable, which is available in neutrally buoyant copper and fiber types of various lengths. The tether connects to the included topside box, which generates its own Wi-Fi signal that allows you to connect your iPad or PC/Mac via the free, downloadable Aquabotix ROV app. This app lets you view the vehicle's live video feed on your computer's display and remotely control its movements and functions.

The Endura is equipped with 32GB of memory to hold captured video and photos, and optional, alternate configurations provide 128, 256, 512, 1024, or 2048GB for greater storage capacity. The camera features 120° tilt capability along with a wide-angle lens, and the dome port corrects for underwater size distortion that makes everything appear 25% larger and closer--thereby helping to restore wider coverage so you can fit more in the frame. Additionally, the ROV offers LED lighting that outputs an impressive 4400 lumens to help illuminate dark environments.

Five Swiss-made, high torque motors and left, right, and rear propellers drive the Endura through the water, giving you control over the vehicle's forward and vertical motion, and this WI configuration also includes a lateral thruster and accepts an optional high-output thruster for extra versatility and power. Another helpful feature of the Endura is its ability to carry a payload of up to 4 lb.

  • Designed for inspecting everything from giant municipal water supplies to small, private tanks
  • Can check for contamination of drinking water
  • Eliminates need to send human divers into tanks, an act which poses risks to their safety and the safety of drinking water--while also greatly increasing costs. You don't have to pay an ROV a salary, and you won't incur a potentially tremendous expense if there's an accident
  • Also negates need to drain tanks completely and inspect them dry, which is a wasteful and expensive process
  • Built-in sensors have all the data-gathering capabilities you need, which makes task completion much quicker and easier
  • ROV can also be used to inspect underwater structures, or underwater portions of structures, such as dams and supports for wind turbines
  • Because it's rated for depths of a few hundred feet, ROV can dive and work much farther beneath the surface than a human can without need for decompression tanks and other specialized equipment
  • Offers Full HD 1080p video
  • Adding optional 360-degree scanning sonar enables ROV to detect things a human diver can't, which is a huge benefit in low/poor-visibility conditions commonly found beneath ships and around piers
  • Video and sonar data stored on board--no additional recording devices required
  • Date and time stamps make the use of ROV-acquired data easy to document
  • Can also be used in study of marine life and environments, examination of undersides of boats, and execution of search-and-recovery missions
  • Not for use in rough sea conditions and/or storms
  • Takes approx. 3 minutes to get vehicle ready and in the water, then 3 hours to master basic driving skills and about 3 days to master advanced skills
Construction Details
  • Depth rating of 328'
  • Gap in tail is designed to allow tail to flood withwater, in order to achieve proper buoyancy during operation
  • Optional weights can be added to bracket on vehicle's bottom for saltwater use, and then removed for freshwater use
  • Dome port for lens made of acrylic
  • Capable of carrying payload up to 4 lb
Live Video and Capture of Videos and Still Photos
  • Provides Full HD 1080p (at 24 fps) live video feed to surface.
  • Records video and captures photos.
  • Following data logged in recordings: Depth, temperature, heading, pitch, roll, lights on/off, thrust levels, ordered heading, ordered thrust, ordered pitch,ordered depth, camera recording on/off, and power levels.
  • Camera features 120° tilt capability, along with a wide-angle lens.
  • Optional add-on features for camera: 360° rotation and 180° tilt.
  • Dome port corrects for underwater size distortion that makes everything appear 25% larger and closer--thereby helping to restore wider coverage so you can fit more in frame.
  • ROV equipped with 32GB of memory. Alternate configurations available with 128, 256, 512, 1024, or 2048GB.
  • Bright, 4400-lumen LED lights on vehicle produce effective illumination
  • Extra 2200-lumen lights can be added
  • Lights can be set up to follow external camera
  • Driven by 5 Swiss-made, high torque motors and left, right, and rear propellers, giving you control over the vehicle's forward and vertical motion
  • WI edition also includes a lateral thruster and accepts an optional high-output thruster for extra versatility and power
  • Supplied lithium-ion battery provides run time of 3-4 hours
  • Optional upgrade to more powerful battery enables run time of 4-6 hours
  • Optional, continuous topside AC power can be added as alternative to battery, so you can run ROV as long as you need without worrying about loss of power
Orientation, Depth, Temperature, and Leak Detection Sensors
  • The orientation sensor provides you with readings on yaw, pitch, roll and heading relative to true north
  • This sensor aids in navigation of the vehicle and is extremely useful in areas with poor water quality
  • There's also a depth sensor that gives you readings on underwater depth of vehicle with extremely high accuracy
  • This allows you to drive ROV to exact depth needed for your purposes, and record notes on what you find at different depths so you can locate it again
  • Additional sensor detects and indicates temperature of water where vehicle is located, helping to ensure you're not going below the minimum for operating ROV, and allowing you to make note of differences in organisms and plant life at various temperatures
  • Leak detection sensor notifies you immediately in unlikely event of a breach in vehicle's waterproof seal, so you can bring it to surface right away

  • Turbidity
  • Conductivity
  • Salinity
