Latest model of "LUNA PRO" telecamera: 12 ultra-bright leds, 50.000 mcd each, 2xZOOM

“LUNA PRO”, UNDERWATER TELECAMERA FOR BOATS (PHOTOMETRIC FEATURES: 12 x 50.000 mcd. extremely high quality pictures, b/w and colours.)

Sharp images / no double vision / always perfectly focused / latest concept, advanced technology television camera

The former type of our telecamera, LUNA, had a diameter of 60 mm and a length of 125 mm. LUNA PRO (our latest model), instead, has a different size: a diameter of only 48 mm and a length of 100 mm. You can use it to 300 metres’ depth.

FOR LIVE VIEWING AND FILMING SEA-DEPTHS, BY MEANS OF A MONITOR PLACED ON THE BOAT IN MOTION (UP TO 300 METRES’ DEPTH). VERY GOOD FOR ARCHAEOLOGICAL BIOLOGICAL RESEARCH AND FOR CHECKING AND RECOGNIZING THE SORT OF SEA-DEPTH. ABSOLUTELY USEFUL FOR FISHERMEN, AS IT CAN BE USED BOTH WITH A CRAFT IN MOTION (TROLLING), AND WITH A BOAT STANDING STILL, TO WATCH WHEN THE FISH RISES TO THE BAIT.

LUNA can also be very useful if employed as a surveillance camera, in swimming pools or in the sea, for studying and monitoring the sea natural world continuously.

In addition to the handle, for manual video-filming carried out by scuba divers, LUNA PRO can be installed also on a trailer, for video checks during sailing.

“LUNA PRO”- UNDERWATER TELECAMERA:

Extremely High Definition, ARMOUR PLATED WITH STAINLESS STEEL / Via cable / Closed-Circuit TV / ANTI-IMPACT / Assembled in our laboratory / tested in hyperbaric chamber. (BY DAYLIGHT, AND UP TO 90 METRES’ DEPTH, IT DOES NOT NEED ANY ILLUMINATORS, AS IT HAS A PHOTOSENSITIVITY OF 0,3LUX.- AT NIGHT, AND UP TO 300 METRES’ DEPTH, INSTEAD, YOU CAN USE IT IN THE DARK, THANKS TO ITS SPECIAL ‘COLD LIGHT’ PROJECTORS, DELIVERED BY 9 or 12 HEAD ULTRA-BRIGHT/WHITE LEDS, PLACED ALL AROUND CAMERA’S LENS, IN A DIVERGING POSITION, SO TO ENLARGE THE CONE OF LIGHT

Connectable to a b/w or colour monitor, or to a common television with video inlet, or to a video-recorder (or directly to your video-camera with "VIDEO IN", analogical/digital or computer).

NEW!: YOUR ‘LUNA’ TELECAMERA CAN BE, NOW, CONNECTED TO THE NEW ELECTRONIC VIDEO-EYEGLASSES, REPLACING THE MONITOR (SEE PRODUCTS’ PAGE)

For fast depths’ view, and for better using the features of this technological gem, you should position it on one of the two trailers - "Vector Pro" or "Concorde". It will be connected by way of a reinforced coaxial cable (the new type of cable is more flexible, with a resistance to tensile-stress of 150 kg). Trailers allow LUNA PRO*-camera to video-film depths with no ‘twisting’ effects, free from evident shakes. Dive and emergence vary according to boat’s speed or to the use of additional ballast.

Our latest concept card-telecamera, is in high-definition colour or b/w, with 420 horizontal lines. Its powerful electronic shutter ensures sharp images, even with a 300 metres long cable, while the small wide-angle lens allow a larger field of vision.The supply (12 volts) is delivered by the boat,while consumptions are extremely negligible (only 80-130 mA/h); therefore, with just one small 1 Ampere’s battery, you can supply the camera for the duration of 8/9 hours in a row. Its high photosensitivity (0.3 lux with leds on, 0,0 lux with leds off) allows video filming, even 90 metres of depth, and with no led light or additional illuminator (on a sunny day!!!). At night, instead, the camera can ‘see’ into the dark, thanks to its LED HIGH LIGHT micro movie-projectors generating a peculiar ‘cold light’. It is, actually, useful for those who want to check sea-depths quickly, without leaving the boat.

As regards to pictures and maximum distance from objects you want to shoot in your videos, it all depends on the clearness of waters. What human eye can see, the same can the camera, always perfectly focused from 5 cm to the infinity. At times our underwater operators have declared that LUNA PRO has an even higher performance. In fact, during some dives carried out in areas neighbouring the docks, where visibility can be reduced to 30 –40 cm only, because of the suspended particulate, pictures filmed by LUNA PRO, and recorded on a common video-recorder, revealed numerous details that human eye could not detect.

LUNA PRO CAN ALSO BE EQUIPPED WITH A SMALL, BLACK ABS BOX (use of this optional item is recommended) FOR SUPPLY AND FOR VIDEO SIGNAL. THERE ARE TWO SWITCHES ON IT: THE FIRST SWITCH IS MEANT FOR TELECAMERA, THE SECOND ONE IS MEANT FOR LEDS. FURTHERMORE, THE SAME BOX HAS A LOGARITHMIC POTENTIOMETER INSTALLED IN IT, TO REGULATE LIGHT’S CONCENTRATION; BESIDES, AS TO THOSE SORTS EQUIPPED WITH A ZOOM, YOU WILL FIND, ALSO, A SPECIFIC COMMUTATOR.

ULTRA-BRIGHT WHITE LEDS REPRESENT A NEW, AS WELL AS MODERN, TECHNOLOGICAL IMPROVEMENT: our "LUNA" camera, in fact, employs the Ultra-Bright Special Leds: there are 9 – 12 of these Leds in it. At present, they are not really popular and widespread on the market, but soon they will occupy all business-areas. And here are the reasons: unlike the common incandescent lamps, Leds do not generate heat; on the contrary, electric power is completely, and only, turned into cold light. Thanks to this feature, just one Ultra-Bright White Led can replace one 8W incandescent lamp; consequent consumption is 40 times lower and does not produce heat; another advantage is that to have it embedded into plastic parts without damaging them. Another peculiar feature is that Led brings about a cone-shaped beam, not requiring a back parabolic device, as it has already an internal micro-parabolic device, as well as lens to convey light. Moreover, free of the typical wolfram filament (which may breaks with shocks), Led has an ultra resistance to impacts. One more remarkable characteristic is the duration of these leds. Indeed their average resistance, if they are continuously switched on, is about 11 years. Most interesting, yet, is their own ‘light emission effect’. Actually, differently from common light bulbs, containing all the colours of solar spectrum, and consequently having a white-yellow colour, leds emanate a monochromatic light; this means that this light will be absolutely white, and as bright as the one from a laser (lasers have a closely analogous technology); as Led wears down, colour does not change and does not weaken its brightness, either, (unlikely common bulbs).

(LENS, with a standard view angle of 92°, forb/w and colourcameras. It is possible, also, to have some larger or some smaller view angles on telecameras, as you like it: 53° - 130° - 148°

In order to choose the best lens, as to your requirements, please get in touch with us. The special cable and the technology employed allow a supply of 12 volts, directly from the battery on board, with no need of any additional supply kit or of another box with additional batteries. SOME OTHER TYPES OF CAMERAS ON THE MARKET NEED A VERY EXPENSIVE KIT FOR ADDITIONAL SUPPLY. WE DO NOT NEED THIS KIT FOR OUR ‘LUNA’ CAMERA!!!

Immediately available cable sizes: 50 -100 - 150 - 200 metres; cable sizes available under requirements: 250 - 300 metres
