Plastics protect new undersea camera

The Submertec Spyball, a revolutionary underwater video camera with integrated pan and tilt function, relies on DSM Engineering Plastics. Three key parts are machined from Ertacetal C and these combine to form a 16cm diameter sphere which has been hydro tested to 40bar.

One side of the sphere can rotate in a vertical axis relative to the centre section, and the entire assembly can rotate horizontally relative to the electrical connector at the top.
