The SeeMate™ Mobile Monitoring Cart is manufactured as a two-wheeled compact and highly mobile video camera monitoring system for quick deployment to pen-side camera locations. Monitor for best-feed delivery rates, feed positioning and fish feeding behavior using any of our model SeeMate™ underwater cameras easily connected to SeeMate™ Monitoring Carts . Each monitoring cart system is fitted with a self-contained 12-volt DC power source complete with automatic low voltage shut-off to maximize gel cell battery life while providing up to 24 hours of continuous monitor and camera operation. All SeeMate™ Mobile Monitoring Carts offer a large 38-cm/15-inch high definition colour LCD video monitor, removable visor, and weatherproof camera plug receptacles for up to 4-cameras.
These highly mobile and versatile camera-monitoring carts are fitted with a top cart positioned handle and a lower foot rest bar that doubles as a second grab handle to facilitate the easy lifting and loading of the 121 lb SeeMate™ Mobile Monitoring Cart in and out of vessels, vehicles, or aircraft. A complete on-board 12-volt DC power management system has been incorporated into the cart consisting of a no spill gel cell battery and a regulated charger sourced to ensure no battery overcharging can occur. A group of front panel positioned highly visible LED power level indicator lights help remind operators when to recharge the battery pack. An automatic low battery voltage shut off turns off the SeeMate™ Monitoring Cart when battery power is low thus ensuring maximum battery pack life.
For maximum cart stability, the 32-amp/hour gel cell battery and regulated charger are strategically positioned beneath the cart’s storage locker shelf with plenty of room for either a second 32-amp/hour gel cell or a single larger 48-amp/hr battery if longer camera and monitor run times are required. Lifting the removable shelf accesses the battery charger’s power cable that plugs into any 110-vac wall receptacle. An optional 230-vac regulated battery charger is also available for those operating at other voltages. This locker location also positions main power, LCD monitor, and SeeMate™ underwater camera reset breakers for 100% systems protection. Reliable field operation is assured with no need to source often hard-to-find or not-at-hand replacement fuses.
Every SeeMate™ Mobile Monitoring Cart is mounted with a modular video camera control circuit board consisting of quick connect electrical harnesses connecting the externally mounted IP66 rated field serviceable Bulgin® video plugs, power switch, and channel selector assemblies. This plug and play approach offers the advantage of quick diagnosis and quick in-field replacement without specialized tools or training.
SeeMate™ Mobile Monitoring Carts installed video control circuit boards have been designed with the future in mind, providing multiple power receptacles and video terminals for the addition of a DVR, video multiplexer, or WireLess W.A.V.E.™ video camera control accessories. All components are placed within the weatherproof storage locker fitted with 316 stainless steel hardware and latches for quick access. Large, easy to grasp knobs provide gloved-hand control of the waterproof power ON/OFF switch; 4-channel video camera selector; and the adjustable video monitor viewing angle knobs located on the outside of the top enclosure.
Equipment options include a larger 48-amp/hour gel cell battery pack for increased field operating time, an alternative 230 vac voltage regulated battery charger, a different shaped sun visor profile offering a less restricted viewing window, and an increase in the number of cameras that can be monitored to 6 cameras. And of course IAS offers parts and technical assistance to allow you to adapt any 12-volt DC camera you may already have to operate from our SeeMate™ Mobile Monitoring Cart.
