Impact Subsea Launches ISA500 Sensor

Impact Subsea announces the launch of ISA500 – a 500kHz underwater altimeter which provides heading, pitch and roll.

With 120 meter (394 feet) altitude range measurement capability, ISA500 also provides heading, pitch and roll readings suitable for basic AUV/ROV navigation or to monitor underwater equipment deployment, the company informed.

Under 11cm (4.3”) in length, 4.5cm (1.8”) width and weighing just 0.325kg in water (0.72lbs) makes the ISA500 a highly compact unit, Impact Subsea wrote in a press release.

The integrated pitch and roll sensor can be used to automatically compensate for pitch, roll and altimeter misalignment to provide consistent altitude readings.

Ben Grant, Managing Director of Impact Subsea, commented:

“The ISA500 is a very capable sensor with the benefit of being extremely easy to use. Through the provision of not only altitude but heading, pitch and roll; users are given capability previously unseen from a single device. For many applications, we believe the ISA500 can provide users with a significant equipment cost saving opportunity.”
