Imenco’s OE10-107 Medium Duty Rotator Unit offers exceptional torque and accurate positioning performance, packaged within an extremely rugged housing. This all-electric rotator has been designed for positioning of cameras, lights, mechanical scanning sonar and tooling in subsea applications. The OE10-107 Medium Duty Rotator Unit compact dimensions make it ideally suited for use on tooling and survey skids, observation class ROVs and larger work class ROV systems.
Unlike traditional rotary actuators, the OE10-107 requires a 24 VDC power supply, freeing up ports on the ROV’s hydraulic valve pack for mission-critical tooling. The OE10-107 features enhanced motor driver circuity allowing direction change commands to be implemented every 0.5 seconds. Innovative harmonic drive gearing and a 9-bit digital encoder provide exceptional output torque (30 Nm @ 24 VDC).
With a position feedback accuracy of (±2°) and minimal mechanical backlash (±0.08°), the operator always knows the orientation of the attached sensor, reducing the risk of cable damage and sensor failure.
The OE10-107 utilizes built-in testing technology to monitor a variety of system parameters, increasing product reliability whilst decreasing repair cycle times, therefore decreasing through-life costs.
A new and intuitive graphical user interface is supplied with the OE10-107 free of charge, giving full rotator control, use of ‘Goto’ functions, variable output speed and user-defined end stops. The unit is available in two control configurations, either RS232 or RS485 (half-duplex) serial digital link.
The internal electronic assembly is protected within a compact and ruggedized oil-filled housing, manufactured from 316L stainless steel and incorporating a bladder style pressure compensator for reliable deep-water operation to 6000msw.
