Orbit SD Base is our entry-level camera. It still provides great quality images and is designed for use in aquaculture. Everything from the lens to the shape of the camera housing is designed to work year after year in water. The round camera housing is designed to enable the camera to rotate 360° in all directions, which means you can get the angle you want. The round shape also ensures that the camera cannot damage fish or equipment, and is minimally affected by turbulence and current in the tank.

Light sensitivity

With a light sensitivity of 0.003 Lux, The Orbit SD Base can be used even in low light conditions. In the event of particularly poor light conditions, the camera will automatically switch from a color image to black/white, thus retaining the sharp image even longer.

77° angle of view in water

Getting a full overview of what is happening in the pen is not always straightforward. The wide viewing angle means that you can always maintain an overview without having to adjust the camera’s position. The optics and digital components have been chosen to provide the fish technician as much information as possible without distorting the image.


Fish technicians need to be able to rely on their equipment day in, day out – and year after year. Many of our cameras are still in use 20 years after coming off the production line. To ensure that our cameras can withstand the conditions they encounter, all ScaleAQ cameras are pressure tested to depths of 100 meters.


ScaleAQ’s cameras weigh less than 6.5 kg in the air and have modest external dimensions (187x304x198 mm). This makes them easy to handle, transport and store. Their round shape and low weight also means they have a minimal impact on other parts of the facility.
