The camera head can quickly locate any desired viewing direction without any mechanical stops. The high intensity LED lighting system with shock-resistant, light covers ensures optimal illumination of the field of view. The Ultra Mini Pan & Tilt Camera has a built-in 512Hz Sonde as a standard for locating camera position from above ground.

The SuperVision SAT lateral launch system crawls 300 feet down mainlines 6 inches and larger, and then inserts its camera as far as 100 feet into laterals 3.5 inches and larger. The auto-leveling color camera with shadowless illumination pans 360 degrees and tilts 90 degrees to view both sidewall detail and distant targets. SuperVision SAT’s steerable six-wheel drive helps it maneuver to troublesome launch points. Auxiliary lamps and a backward-viewing camera enhance visibility in both directions. An integral sonde transmits at multiple frequencies, facilitating locating the camera from above ground. Force-sensing rollers prevent damage to the push rod, ensuring maintenance-free operation. SuperVision SAT is available as a complete system, or as an add-on package that works with an existing SuperVision system. 973.252.6700, envirosight.com
