The Ratech model "TORPEDO" crawler is a self-propelled, multi-conductor camera transporter. Equipped with a built-in 380-line resolution color camera, it is capable of inspecting 4- and 6-inch mainline sewers and watermains from a single entry point. The transporter has two sets of wheels; one set for 4-inch pipe and another for 6-inch pipe. With its powerful 1/8-hp motor, rugged transmission and durable gearing it will overcome most obstacles and make easy work of most pipelines. The power and controls to operate the transporter are supplied through the existing multi-conductor TV cable already in the vehicle. 800.461.9200, www.ratech-electronics.com
