Project Description

The SENTINEL Protection Frame

Miniaturized sealed high pressure camera enclosure allowing comprehensive lens control

The SENTINEL is a modular extension that upgrades STANCE to one of the smallest sealed high pressure camera systems. Due to our industrial grade sealing design the SENTINEL frame is built to defy even demanding pressures and hazardous environments while allowing comprehensive lens control. Finally all interfaces of STANCE up to even its status LED are fully accessible within the new sealed state.

Superior Protection

Sophisticated sealing design protecting high precision camera technology

Infused by several years of experience within the research and development of sealing technology as well as high pressure, deep sea and custom connectors our proven and sophisticated sealing design can be tuned to protect against different pressure levels up to 4000psi / 275bar using stock components.

Furthermore custom developments that are tailored to your application’s pressures (exceeding 4000psi) and environments are available upon request. As a result each design easily outperforms any standard IP68 camera enclosure.

Comprehensive Lens Control

Sealed access and control over aperture and focus

The SENTINEL high pressure camera extension module is one of the smallest sealed enclosures allowing full control over aperture and focus under high pressures and hazardous environments. Furthermore even stock lenses can be integrated and controlled using a wide range of dedicated interfacing components. As a result we designed all handles to be easily accessible while used manually. Furthermore commonly used module 0.8 precision gears allow automated / remote control via external systems like our IP68 sealed LENS-DRIVE.

Tough and Miniaturized

A rugged design featuring advanced materials

Enclosed in a rugged yet miniaturized and puristic body SENTINEL features a tough system design that is superior to its class. Consequently it makes perfect sense for us to use only materials of highest strength and quality. As a result high end alloys adding unmatched corrosion resistance are also available. This includes materials that meet demanding international standards like API class 6A / NACE of the deep sea oil and gas industry.

Customization

Tailored to your needs

A wide range of materials and surface finishes to choose from including customer defined specifications allow easy and dedicated changes of characteristics like shape, weight, strength, protection and mounting or simply the look to perfectly suit your demands.

Specialized high pressure connector interface

A reliable and safe connection

We developed a new set of miniaturized coax video connectors that are sealed against high pressures and hazardous environments. Additionally full compliance with the international HD-BNC standard is met that also allows the use of standard HD-BNC cables. Finally all signal and power connections are based on proven and reliable Lemo connectors.
