Remote Optical Watcher - ROW 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. Highly accurate and easy to maintain, the ROW finds oil spills fast for an early response.
- Sensitivity: > 1 μm
- Power: < 2W
- Range: up to 10 m
- Warranty: 2 years
The ROW detects the most common oils used across multiple industries from heavy oils (crude*, bunker fuels etc.) to medium (diesel, lubricant etc.) and even light fractions (kerosene, jet fuel etc.).
Requiring only 2W (@12VDC) of continuous power, the ROW is fully compatible with off-grid solar/battery set up and connects seamlessly to your 3rd party telemetry.
We built the ROW to be rugged and installed across the world's environments. With an IP68 enclosure, you can expect year round monitoring without the maintenance.
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.
With standard CE, EPA, and ATEX/IECEx accreditation by DNV, you can rest assured the ROW is independently 3rd party certified to meet your local regulations.
