SS309 Compact Underwater Rotator Device

SS309 Compact Underwater Rotator Device

The Sidus SS309 compact underwater rotator assembly is designed in a modular configuration and uses high quality precision ball bearings, low backlash gear drives and motors. The high output brushless, synchronous electric motors can operate reliably even after thousands of cycles. 

These compact rotator devices can operate at depths of up to 10,000 feet and are capable of generating impressive amounts of torque.  The SS309 can operate in any type of harsh environment due to its corrosion resistant single piece design which prevents rusting and water ingestion. 

Communication is supported through RS232, RS422 and RS485 protocols. Users can choose from a range of input connectors.
