The Seaeye 600DT System is rated for operations
to a depth of 300 metres. The 600DT is the latest evolution
of the original Seaeye 600 introduced in the mid 1980's. The
original hydrodynamic shape remains unchanged but modern digital
electronics, today's control technology and the latest Seaeye
SM4 thrusters have been added to enhance the power and performance
envelope of this internationally established observation ROV.
The forward speed of a Seaeye 600DT is in excess of three
A basic ROV system comprises the Vehicle, Power
Distribution Unit (PDU) which contains all the surface control
electronics, a Hand Controller and an isolation transformer.
The surface power and control units can be supplied
free standing or as a containerised system. The Control
Container can be Zone II rated or rated for safe area
operations with optional air conditioning.
Seaeye 600DT's can be operated either
in a free swimming mode or via the optional Seaeye 600DT
Tether Management System (TMS). The TMS is a side entry
garage system with a bale arm mechanism (no slip-rings required)
and with a140 metre tether capacity.
A skid mounted 'A' frame and lifting winch with
400 metres of armoured lift umbilical is offered as a compact
combined unit to launch and recover a TMS garaged Seaeye
600DT. This can be offered rated for hazardous area Zone
II operations or to A60 standard for 'safe area' operations
and is known as a 'LARS' or Launch and
Recovery System. Alternatively you may have
your own crane available and may only require the lifting
winch and armoured umbilical with an umbilical sheave and
a lock-latch release mechanism and vehicle bullet for launch
|Maximum working depth
The 600DT is propelled by four highly efficient SEAEYE SM4
brushless DC thrusters. Thruster configuration is two horizontal
and two vertran units.
Manufactured in polypropylene with an ABS bottom protective
cover and 316 stainless steel lifting frame. The chassis is
rugged, durable, resilient and virtually maintenance free.
All fasteners are 316 stainless steel.
Both the electronics pod and camera ball are machined
from 6082 marine grade aluminium and hard anodised black.
Neoprene 'wet mateable' type connectors are used throughout.
A single hydro-dynamically shaped block of closed cell polyurethane
foam. A fully protected aperture for an obstacle avoidance
sonar is designed into the foam.
16 bit digital system providing easy interfacing to ancillary
equipment by the operator. The SEAEYE comprehensive video
overlay is fitted as standard providing digital and analogue
