Digital control for Vanguard ROV.

Allen Vanguard : 19 February, 2008  (New Product)
Touch screen controls combined with hard controls enable improved control of Vanguard remote operated vehicle.
Allen-Vanguard has launched a digital version of its mini ROV, the Vanguard.

The new version of the Vanguard has been upgraded with a digital command console enabling 'plug and play' accessory functionality, intuitive control and full interoperability with its sister ROV, the BombTec Defender. The digital architecture means new devices can be added to the ROV 'network' and controlled remotely without returning the remotely operated vehicle to the workshop and suffering downtime.

Combined touch screen and hard controls mean multi functioning is easy - for example, lights and cameras can be controlled while driving forward or the arm can be manipulated when steering. In addition, the hand controller can be removed from the console to provide limited functionality via Bluetooth - this is particularly useful for training, maintenance and driving the ROV in and out of its transporter.

"This new version of the Vanguard is robust and versatile, and can confidently perform an extensive range of first response functions," explains Glyn Buckler, sales director at Allen-Vanguard. "Its modular construction and straightforward electronics make maintenance and support in the field simple and inexpensive, improving the life-time value of the robot".

Glyn continues: "Allen-Vanguard is investing heavily in its facilities to become a global centre of excellence for the R&D and production of ROVs. Our aim is to drive the evolution of ROVs to meet the changing needs of first responders, by ensuring greater reliability, enhancing performance levels and enabling more complicated tasks to be carried out remotely."
