Description

Key Features:​Heavy lifting capability - The vLBV-10 adds four additional powerful thrusters to the vertical position giving it an unprecedented 18 kg (40 lb) lifting capability. Maintaining the small vLBV design provides operators with a highly portable tool for precisely lifting/deploying/retrieving heavy objects.Articulating grabber - To handle the heavy lifting the vLBV-10 is fitted with an articulating single function grabber arm. In standard configuration the grabber arm is pointed out front for easy view by the primary camera and of objects of interest. Once the object is grasped the grabber arm can be rotated down to be centered under the ROV for lifting. This articulation keeps the vLBV-10attitude stable.​Powerful variable vector thruster configuration - Vectored thruster configuration provides amazing control in all horizontal directions, therefore the use offshore in demanding conditions. The vLBV-10 has impressive Bollard thrust with 18.1-22.5 kg f (40-50 pd f) forward. Thruster vector angle is variable from equal horizontal to forward optimized. Dual vertical thrusters offer greater vertical control and roll stabilization.Optimized mechanical design - The vLBV-10 has undergone extensive mechanical design to optimize stability, capability, flexibility and serviceability. No other small ROV has had such attention to every detail as the vLBV line of ROV systems. The vLBV-10 is available in either 300 or 950 meter depth capabilities.
