Due to its detection range of up to 30 meters the OPTIMARE SpillWatch!® LR system is especially suited for installation on oil rigs. The system is designed and manufactured for deployment in rugged settings.
- Highly effective LED-based excitation
- Based on fluorescence excitation and detection
- Ruggedized design (IP66)
- Cost-effective, low-maintenance
- Multiple interfaces
The sensor technology is based on fluorescence excitation and detection. Its innovative optical set-up and all-solid-state opto-electronic components guarantee high sensitivity and allow low-maintenance operation. The system automatically filters out ambient conditions (e.g. sunlight), providing highly reliable detection under all light, weather and surface conditions.
