Hyperbaric Treatment Chamber


The Uni-Heal 2200 (HBO) is a well-engineered hyperbaric medical treatment facility. The treatment chamber is equipped with flat end walls and rectangular doors for easy entrance of patients with wheelchairs and stretchers. The decompression chamber and all support systems are designed to a 50msw depth rating. The chamber approval is according to ASME VIII DIV.1 PVHO-1 (U.S.A. Safety Standard for Pressure Vessels for Human Occupancy) or if requested the pressure vessels can also be built in compliance with European 97-23 EC and 93-42 EEC. Further accreditation also includes ISO 13485 and DNV GL.

The chamber is provided with water deluge systems, in compliance with the NFPA-99 or EC guidelines as applicable. Overall chamber certification for Europe is EC97-43. The standard chamber can accommodate up to 6 patients seated in the main chamber and 2 patients seated in the entry chamber. This can be modified to meet customer’s specifications.

A manual control panel is supplied as standard. The control panel includes a data recorder for monitoring all critical parameters of the chamber such as pressure, time, temperature, relative humidity, oxygen and CO2 %. A PLC control system can be provided as an option. Unique Group.


Autonomous Profiling Winch


The RBRglissando winch enables automated profiling of CTD and sound velocity sensors for small boats and ASVs. It is capable of 200m profiles at a descent rate of 1m/s and requires no user attention. The vertical profile data is automatically uploaded to the winch controller via Wi-Fi and tagged with a GPS position and telemetered directly via Iridium or GSM, or passed to the vehicle controller.

The winch is accessed via Wi-Fi, USB, serial, or Ethernet. Configurable profiling parameters include depth, speed, and repeat interval. Archived profile data can be viewed using phones, tablets, or laptops. The winch can hold 200m of high-strength 1.8mm Dyneema line and is fully waterproof to IP68 standards. GSM and Iridium telemetry options are available for complete autonomous and remote operation.The instrument is continuously charged inductively when not profiling. RBR Ltd.


Micro-AUV


NemoSens is a compact autonomous underwater vehicle designed for applications in the fields of Industry and Science. Small (less than 1 m long) and easy to carry and launch (less than 20 lb., including payload), NemoSens can host any payload, be it a CTD probe, side scan sonar or other sensors. 

A system of acoustic communication manages the control of its
real-time positioning. Thanks to an open LINUX architecture, it can be programmed from a ROS or MOOS interface. This extends mission coverage with swarm technology and the possibility to deploy multiple AUVs. RTsys.



Digital Pressure Gauge

Crystal XP2i has an ultralow-power (ULP) mode through the optional DataLoggerXP firmware upgrade for long-term pressure data recording. By using the ULP mode and an extended logging interval of one reading every 17 min., the XP2i with the optional DataLoggerXP upgrade will last more than one year. AMETEK STC.
