APEX Subsea Image Scaling Laser Module


The APEX range of subsea laser modules were specifically designed to improve measurement precision and minimise the technical complexity of creating a small cluster of parallel laser beams for use in underwater image scaling applications.  Multiple laser beams are robotically-aligned within a single pressure housing, creating a cruciform or box-form output.  


APEX underwater laser modules deliver an inherently improved form of laser projection; providing optimum beam alignment and eliminating intra-beam wandering that otherwise occurs when using multiple single laser modules on a framework.  APEX provides an intuitive indication of scale or millimeter-resolution measurements when used with Savante cameras, strobes and flash-lamps.


APEX blue-green lasers are highly visible over long distances in seawater due to minimal attenuation and are essential for enhancing vision in turbid waters; the contrast-reducing effects of light scattering can be significantly reduced.  Red laser alternatives are also available for operations in shallow water or strong ambient lighting.



Key Features:

  • Robust, general-purpose 20mW (4 x 5mW) subsea laser projector.

  • Ultradeep rated - 4000m depth rating.

  • Digitally controlled variable intensity; RS232 option.

  • High definition projection enables optimal precision measurement accuracy.

  • OEM or optional “laser on” indicator for IEC compliance.

  • High-efficiency direct diode laser technology.

  • Reverse-polarity protected, wide input voltage range (18-30VDC) enables easy integration.

  • Anti-reflection coated sapphire windows; delivers high-definition imaging performance, reduces stray light and best scratch resistance for longer life.

  • Available in violet, blue, green, red and infra-red wavelengths.



Optional Extras:

  • Savante VOXEL 3D underwater machine-vision scanning software

  • Mounting brackets.
