Our goal from day one has been to make inspections safer and more efficient and to provide better data to the end-customer.
The vehicle comes ready to dive. We have focused on improving the entire user experience from operating to maintaining the vehicle.
Inspector 3 has inherited what made Inspector 1 and 2 great and matures the performance and design of the vehicle to enable a wider range of user missions. We have designed the vehicle that we would buy and use.
The vehicle is only built with quality materials and the latest chip sets available.
Camera: Capture Full HD footage
Lighting: 5000 Lumen lights array
Speed: Overcome 2.5 knot currents
Maneuverability: 5 thrusters provide smooth and superior control stability.
Power: Hot swappable travel-safe 3hr duration batteries.
Interface: Control your vehicle with ease with an iPad or Bluetooth enabled joystick.
Reliability: Engineered for stable system performance and ability to diagnose issues.
SeaDrone dynamically regulates the camera’s pitch angle to help reduce oscillations when piloting the robot and capturing footage.
Inspector 3 is simply the most efficient open-frame vectored ROV in the market. Weighing in at 6.5kg, Inspector 3 packs an unprecedented amount of power in an unthinkable amount of space.
Cables are known to be one of the primarily sources of failure (Signal interference, leaks, snagging). Inspector 3 has all its thrusters, lights, and camera built into the main waterproof housing. These modular components are low maintenance and are easy to replace.
Having a vectored vehicle is not enough, Inspector 3 has a symmetric drag profile that ensures that when you turn the vehicle, it will hold its ground and will not get swept down stream.
Frequently the footage that you are trying to capture does not align with the direction of the water currents. Inspector 3 allows you to take photos and video while operating in crosscurrents.
A good camera is nothing without proper lighting. Inspector 3’s lighting array is equivalent to having 4 car headlights, allowing you to capture crisp details and get the most out of your full HD camera.
Battery pair charges in 1.5hrs. With an extra set, you can operate the vehicle all day. Exchange batteries in less than 1 minute.
Focus on capturing the footage you want and not piloting the vehicle. SeaDrone’s precise Auto Depth and Auto Heading system simplifies the vehicle’s control. We carefully tuned the acceleration of the vehicle to achieve both a responsive yet, smooth ride, from beginner to pro.
Photos and videos are stored directly on your Ipad for easy sharing.
App updates are frequently published to the app store. Vehicle software is updated with the single button click on the SeaDrone app.
Do not waste time repairing or maintaining your underwater thrusters. SeaDrone thrusters have been designed to be easy and affordable to replace.
In 2 minutes: Replace all 4 horizontal propellers
In 5 minutes: Replace any thruster
Thrusters have no mechanical seals or pressure housing that will develop leaks and depending on their usage, can last hundreds of hours, however, being the only moving component on the vehicle in contact with water and in varying conditions, they are the part that is at highest risk of getting damaged.
We believe that a robot should be smart and that the user should get the best experience. Every SeaDrone vehicle comes standard with a 9 axis IMU, pressure and temperature sensor, system current and voltage sensor, three leak detection sensors, internal vacuum pressure sensor, humidity sensor, and a magnetic ON/OFF sensor.
What are the requirements for your next underwater mission? Do you need a sonar, USBL, or a gripper? SeaDrone has you covered. Three spare 16mm diameter ports that fit ethernet connectors are included in the Inspector 3. The vehicle also runs ethernet down the tether so you can easily install other ethernet based sensors with an ethernet kit.
