Alerts provide immediate text messages if either DC voltage, temperature or humidity falls out of range to prevent damage or loss. Sirius Integrator Inc.

Remotely Operated Vehicle
With a depth rating of 6,000 m, the MAC-ROV is making access to all oceans a reality for more people and vessels. Small ROVs don’t need big support vessels, and they reduce expenditures and operational costs. The shuttle concept helps carry large loads to avoid multiple trips. All Oceans Engineering Ltd.

Wave Measuring Devices
SVS-603 inertial wave height sensor is a low-powered system that reports heading, significant wave height, dominant wave period and direction via RS-232 or logs to its on-board data logger. It also has very low power consumption; leaves a small footprint; MEMS sensors account for 3-D motion, rotation and compass heading; and has NOAA compliant data logging/transmission. Available with GPS, data logger and telemetry options. Planet Ocean Ltd.

Emergency Leak Repair Kit
A kit has been developed that can seal leaks in high-pressure pipes ranging from 2 to 20 in. in diameter and can cover holes up to 1 in. across. It can achieve optimum sealing performance regardless of the nature of the liquid escaping. Miko Marine AS.

Underwater Camera Housing
The FG7X II Housing was specially created for the Canon PowerShot G7 X II digital camera. Made from durable injection molded polycarbonate, it is depth-rated to 60 m. The housing protects the camera from water, sand, dust, frost and other damaging elements. Fantasea Line.

Boomer/Sparker Selection
