The LAMP II uses a self-propelled lateral launcher, transportation platform, and two cameras, one for pan/tilt/optical zoom operations (mainline) and one for lateral launching. The LAMP II is available with a stainless steel push cable or fiberglass push cable. The fiberglass push cable allows for easy deployment, retrieval, and storage and can inspect up to 120 feet into a lateral pipe. The stainless steel cable option can inspect up to 100 feet into a lateral pipe. Color video from the two cameras is displayed in a picture-in-picture format, making the launch of the camera into the lateral quick and simple. A new rear-viewing, color camera is now available for use with the LAMP II lateral launcher in 6-inch mainline and larger configurations. The rear-view camera facilitates the speed and simplification of the lateral launcher retrieval process. An integrated wireless controller is available to operate all launcher, platform, camera and reel operations from the front, rear or within 50 feet line of sight. 800.327.7791,
