LUXUS Drop Plate
The LUXUS drop plate is a simple and innovative underwater camera platform enabling the remote operation of three LUXUS power LED lights and any LUXUS camera.
Manufactured from high density polyethylene with a frame shielding the onboard cameras and lights from impacts on the seafloor, the LUXUS drop plate provides the ruggedness and stability needed for performing any basic visual inspection task, even in harsh underwater environments.
The LUXUS drop plate does not require a specific handling system and can be readily deployed from a small boat or basic vessel of opportunity. Integrated lifting handles make for easy deployment and recovery of the system. A small MacArtney cable reel can also be used.
The LUXUS drop plate is primarily used for oceanographic and basic inspection applications. The system provides an off-the-shelf, flexible and cost effective alternative to custom built towed camera systems and traditional drop cameras.
The LUXUS drop plate can be supplied as a plug-and-play solution complete with cameras, lights, controller, cable and optional reel.
