As an upgraded drain and sewer pipe inspection camera kit than many of the entry level systems, the Testrix TX-30S offers a number of additional features, which retains the economical pricing of the low cost units, but also adds in some further options, designed to make drain and sewer CCTV inspections easier due to additional information provided by this system. Housed in a professional ABS hard case, this drain and pipe inspection camera system is a complete kit, supplied ready for use.
The drain camera head is manufactured from aluminium alloy materials, which is a lightweight and extremely durable option, and the sapphire glass, which is used to cover the lenses on Testrix cameras is an extremely hard material unlike the cheaper cameras which use lower quality materials, and ultimately will give reduced service life. The self-contained control box has also received an upgrade in specification to a newer style unit, which is far easier to use, and has a logical layout with a navigation keypad and main functions, such as LED brightness and recording in one place.
One of the main additional features is a built in 512Hz sonde (radio transmitter) to the camera head, which allows a suitable underground cable & pipe locator, such as one of our Radiodetection units from the RD7100 range, or Testrix low cost locator to be used on the surface in order to locate the position of the camera head. With the camera's position located, the position of any pipe damage or blockages is known, which makes it easy to expose the section of drain or sewer pipe and clear any blockage or repair the pipe more efficiently. A lower frequency sonde (512Hz) enables the signal to pass through materials such as cast iron and ductile steel which will mask the signal from other sondes, and minimises the risk of the signal jumping onto other buried services.
The cable reel is manufactured from fibreglass to give flexibility and strength. Unlike some entry level camera systems, the fibreglass rod is 5mm in diameter, which will give extra strength, whilst still retaining the flexibility required to traverse through drainage and sewerage pipes. The slightly thicker cable reel allows the user to maintain control of the camera head, as the distance increases, and a distance counter is also built into the cable reel, which gives the user an on screen display of the length of cable inserted into the drain or sewer. when utilising this function, especially in conjunction with a locator, the distance to the problem can be easily available.
We supply this drain & pipe inspection camera kit with a 23mm camera head manufactured from aluminium alloy and with a sapphire glass, which is hard and exceptionally durable. The camera head is IP68 waterproof rated, and also resistant to dust, dirt and sand making it suitable for use in and around water. Also, the camera is fitted with 12 LEDs for use in dark drains and sewer pipes, and these also have adjustable brightness, controlled from the main control box, to ensure that the image and videos are optimised for the conditions, allowing undetected details to be picked up. A wide angle lens is standard, which allows for closer inspections of drainage and sewer pipes than is afforded with standard field of view cameras. In order to keep the camera centred within the pipe and away from the pipe bottom which may have a build up of material, we supply the kit with skids, which can be easily and quickly fitted to the camera head.
The real time video from the camera is displayed on a larger 9 inch digital colour screen, which also has an integrated sunshield, which can be either folded away, or deployed when using the drain camera in bright sunlight and the main menu functions are also driven from this monitor, making this a very easy to use drain cctv camera system, even without any prior instruction or training. The 9 inch screen offers a crisper image than a larger screen and is larger than the 7 inch screen for more information, coupled with the best image resolution. This particular drain camera system can record video and save images to a SD card, or a USB stick which is inserted into the control box, and then can be downloaded to a PC and emailed to customers or included in reports.
A QWERTY keyboard is installed into the system case, which allows the operator to easily add text and comments into videos and images for explanations and information relating to any potential issues and problems found by the camera.
Finally, the system is powered by a rechargeable 12V Li-Ion battery pack for complete portability, giving a run time of approximately 4 hours per charge, and the 30 metre cable can be run off the reel without the need to remove the reel from the case for even greater ease of use.
