Teledyne TSS builds small subsea tracker
12 January 2018
Teledyne TSS, a division of Teledyne Marine, announces the expansion of its market leading range of subsea pipe and cable detection and tracking products with the launch of the new smaller HydroPACT 660 pipe tracking system. The 660 has been designed to help reduce the cost of subsea pipe surveys by allowing the use of smaller classes of underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). In addition, TSS is also expanding the capabilities of its larger HydroPACT 440 pipe tracking system by introducing a new 24VDC upgrade kit.
The new, compact HydroPACT 660 sports a single small form factor coil array measuring 1,200mm x 600mm at a weight of only 15.8kg that offers an operating range of greater than 85% of that of the significantly larger HydroPACT 440 system. This smaller and lighter coil array suits smaller ROVs such as observation class or inspection class.
The HydroPACT 660 operates to 3,000m depth, and is offered with two different power options: 24VDC or 110VAC.
Teledyne TSS has introduced a new 24VDC power supply pod for the HydroPACT440 system. This will help to increase the flexibility and use of the system on vehicles that only support DC power capability.
