RapidView
PANORAMO SI provides a complete 360-degree view of the manhole after the inspection, similar to normal PANORAMO pipe segment files. It is available as an add-on to your PANORAMO system or in a stand-alone version. The 3D Optoscanner uses two high-resolution digital cameras with distortion-free wide-angle lenses. These optically scan the entire interior of the manhole in a few seconds in one single vertical run. The operator can view the digitally transmitted image data as if it were a live picture. The condition of the manhole is then assessed back in the office or directly on site. 800.656-IBAK, rapidview.com

The Ratech Torpedo Remote Wheeled Camera Transporter 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 water mains from a single entry point. The Torpedo allows single hole entry to reach dead end lines and blockages where winch pulled cameras cannot reach. Manhole-to-manhole inspections are completed in less time by eliminating winch setup. With its powerful 1/8-hp motor, transmission and gearing it will overcome obstacles and make easy work of most lines. The power and controls to operate the transporter are supplied through the existing multi conductor TV cable in the vehicle. Two conductors are required with a minimum of #20 Awg in size. The unit is adaptable to most systems currently on the market. 800.461.9200, ratech-electronics.com

Solo enables better, more timely decision making by providing the most useful small pipe information fast. Solo inspects pipe without an operator present, and the results are coded offline. Solo includes an on-board power, intelligence and storage. The system can make daily inspections 3 to 5 times that of conventional CCTV technologies. No dedicated truck is required. Powered by ICOM3, Solo comes with a 360-degree pan and tilt zoom viewing, deployment of manhole GPS, a PACP/WRc Report and comprehensive operational statistics. 412.476.8980, redzone.com
