New LUXUS Dropplate from MacArtney

MacArtney has introduced the new LUXUS Dropplate – a simple and innovative underwater camera platform enabling marine operators to perform instant and effective underwater investigations by means of three LUXUS Power LED lights and any LUXUS camera.

A rugged and stable inspection platform

Manufactured from high density polyethylene with a frame shielding the onboard cameras and lights from impacts on the seafloor, the LUXUS Dropplate provides the ruggedness and stability needed for performing any basic visual inspection task in harsh underwater environments.

One solution – multiple applications

The LUXUS Dropplate does not require a specific handling system and can be readily deployed from a small boat or basic vessel of opportunity. Efficient operation of the onboard camera and light equipment is achieved using a LUXUS Multi Media Controller and a Kevlar TV cable – while integrated lifting handles make for easy deployment and recovery of the system. A small MacArtney hand winch can also be used.

The LUXUS Dropplate is primarily targeted towards oceanographic and basic inspection applications. The system provides a flexible, off-the-shelf alternative to custom built towed systems and traditional drop cameras.
