The LDI ROW (Remote Optical Watcher) is an autonomous non-contact sensor that detects oil on water in real time. It uses oil’s natural fluorescence to detect anything from marine diesel to vegetable oil to jet fuel, and alerts you immediately. The ROW finds oil spills fast for an early response.
The ROW is designed for industrial or environmental water monitoring. It can be installed in remote locations, in the toughest environments and even offshore.
Oil spills are detected from 1 micron film and from a height of up to 10 meters.
With the ROW's optical technology for non-contact monitoring, there is no marine biofouling or oil contaminating the sensor. This limits the need for regular cleaning. Furthermore, the ROW has a robust IP68 enclosure, which guarantees year round monitoring without the maintenance.
Requiring only 2W (@12VDC) of continuous power, the ROW can deploy offshore and connect to your wireless telemetry.
With standard CE, EPA, and ATEX/IECEx accreditation the ROW is certified to meet your local regulations.
