SafetyNet Technologies have launched an updated version of the CatchCam Lamp, now brighter and sturdier than its predecessor.
The new Lamp is four times brighter (500 lumens) than the previous iteration, and is available in the company’s Deep range, rated to reach 800 meters (450 fathoms) deep.
Like its original version, the Lamp was designed to be paired with the CatchCam Camera to allow commercial fishers to observe their fishing operations at virtually any depth.
The Lamp also has 4 brightness settings, with battery performance ranging from 5 to 220 hours. It can be controlled using a remote to manually adjust the Lamp’s brightness, color and a brand new feature of flashing at 32Hz. This flashing feature extends the battery life to almost 10 hours whilst at maximum power, which gives the new Lamp a similar battery performance with four times the brightness.
The LED Lamp is a small tool that can be attached almost anywhere in the fishing gear. The original version was designed with versatility in mind to suit different fisheries, and the latest CatchCam Lamp allows fishers to see their gear in action in deeper waters where ambient sunlight cannot penetrate.
Depending on the conditions, all versions of the CatchCam Lamp can be paired side by side with a CatchCam Camera inside the trawl attachment, or be deployed separately to illuminate objects that are further away, such as the footrope relative to the headline.
Finally, the upgraded LED Lamp gives its users more options and more flexibility to see that which has never been seen before. That way, fishers can improve the precision and efficiency of their fishing operations.
