The DTG2 STARTER model comes complete with 50 meters of tether, and our standard controller for the first completely portable remotely operated vehicle.
The innovative design of DTG2 is like no other ROV on the market. Powered by on-board rechargeable batteries, this 19.2V system offers many advantages over the typical top side powered ROVs. The on-board batteries reduces tether diameter and eliminates power loses through long power feeds. A smart charger simply plugs into the back of the ROV when back on shore and indoors. Onboard sensors monitor the motor's status and will immediately cut power if there is a fault. Additional sensors track the battery and warn the operator of low levels. A low battery is not of any concern as the ROV can simply be pulled out of the water with the tether. Normal battery life is 6 to 8 hours of run time with a recharge time of 3 hours.
The DTG2 ROV is constructed to last. The cast aluminum body encases a 360 degree center window allowing for an unprecedented field of view. The patented vertical pitch system allows for unique and exceptional maneuverability. Well protected 63mm diameter propellers prevent debris from binding the output shaft. High powered rare earth magnetic couplers means there are no dynamic seals on this system, for maximum leak protection. A 700HD line colour camera rotates from the center of the ROV to take advantage of the center window and gives the operator a 270 degree vertical field of view. The camera is tracked by an LED floodlight. This feature allows the operator to look in any direction whether it be straight up at the hull of a boat or straight down at the seabed while driving forward.
The DTG2 is sized for good stability in the water, but small enough to transport by hand to difficult locations. At 18.8 lb. you may lower it into the water by the tether over the side of the boat or even from a very high vantage point, such as a bridge. The nominal buoyancy of the ROV is set to neutral. It can be adjusted with an included set of stainless steel weights to fine tune the unit according to your preference and water conditions.
Commanding the DTG2 is simple using the lightweight and very portable controller. This familiar style of controller will ease the learning curve normally required to pilot ROVs. The custom designed control pad shaped to resemble the ergonomically proven gaming pad. With an RCA ouput, the standard controller can be plugged into digital video glasses, recording devices, or TVs. Together, these features make the DTG2 STARTER perfect for those quickly needing eyes in shallow water with little training when inspecting and exploring the underwater world.
