autoVimation Enclosures Nautilus


Originally developed for under-water TV productions, the new Nautilus has been improved even further. Featuring the same dimensions as the Orca M, every critical component like enclosure lids, front window or cable gland is fitted with a double seal. This means even if one seal fails, the camera is still reliably protected. The purpose developed conduit system protects the critical cable entry point from leaks by shielding the cables completely from the water. This way standard cables can be used. The cable exit on the other side of the tube is also sealed water tight in order to prevent any water ingress here as well. According to EN 60529 the Nautilus can be used for up to 10 hours down to 10m depth of water.


  • IP68 protection: for under water use of up to 12 hours down to 10m depth in pool- or sea- water environments
  • Robust built: aluminum extrusion profile with end faces anodized for extra corrosion protection
  • Small form factor: same size as an Orca M enclosure for cameras with up to 60x60mm cross section
  • Sufficient space for cameras and lenses: internal length: 172mm, internal diameter 85mm
  • “Dual seal principle”: all seal elements like enclosure lids, front window and the cable gland are fitted with 2 sealing mechanisms (i.e. double O-rings), providing extra safety for under-water camera use
  • Water tight with any cable: Protective metal conduit with robust PVC sheathing protects the cables from the water and eliminates the risk of an exposed cable entry
  • Flexible camera positioning: angle and position
  • Dovetail profiles enable robust enclosure mounting: on all 4 sides along the entire profile. Mounting brackets resist a displacement force of up to 3000N! Simple adjustment of working distance
  • Assembly of ring lights with up to 78mm diameter: directly into 3″ front lid possible
  • Compatible with a large range of accessories: various mounting and adjustment brackets, positioning ring for simple camera replacement, and more
  • High chemical resistance: thanks to EPDM O-Rings, a Polyurethane cable gland seal and a PVC tube sheathing. Please check if these sealing materials meet your requirements and contact us with special needs
  • Vibration proof camera mounting with good heat dissipation: thanks to Autovimation’s patented Quick-Lock / Heat-Guide mounting system
  • IP66 – protection from high pressure water jets (Nema 4)
  • IP68 – protection from continuous submersion in water (Nema 6) ◦Up to 10m water depth ◦Up to 10 hours
