For drain and sewer inspections in longer runs of pipe, this drain and sewer inspection camera kit is supplied with the latest push rod cable and reel, which offers greater flexibility than the previous model, but with the ability to push the whole 60 metres. This video inspection camera system is fitted with the newly developed 23mm self-levelling camera which has improved sensor resolution and higher power LED lighting and a stainless steel reel, made from 316 grade stainless steel for longer service life. The control unit is housed in a professional ABS hard case making this drain and sewer inspection camera system is a complete kit, supplied ready for use.
Testrix drain camera heads are manufactured from industrial grade materials, which are a lightweight and extremely durable option, and the sapphire glass, which is used to cover the lenses on our cameras is an extremely hard material unlike some cameras which use lower quality mineral glass, and ultimately will give reduced service life. A new style control unit has been installed with custom firmware, 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.
The camera head has a built in 512Hz sonde (radio transmitter), which allows a locator, such as the RD5100S to be used on the surface in order to locate the position and depth 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 60 metre push rod cable is manufactured from strong fibreglass to give flexibility and strength, and is wound onto a specialised reel system, manufactured from industrial 316 grade stainless steel for durability and portability. The fibreglass rod is 7mm in diameter, which is necessary in longer cable reels to ensure that the operator maintains control of the camera over longer distances, as the thinner rods found on many systems will buckle when the camera is further away from the point of entry through drainage and sewerage pipes. A distance counter is integrated into our 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.
This particular drain inspection camera system is supplied with the new and improved 23mm self-levelling camera, meaning that the image is the right way up every time, even in more complex pipe runs, as when the camera is pushed along tight turns, the rod can turn around through these bends. The camera head is IP68 waterproof rated, and also resistant to dust, dirt and sand making it suitable for use in and around water. This self-levelling camera is fitted with new and upgraded LED lighting, which offers more lighting power, and an updated lighting ring for more even lighting dispersion in dark dark drain and sewer pipes. The lighting has user adjustable brightness, controlled from the main control unit, to ensure that the image and videos are optimised for the conditions, allowing undetected details to be picked up, and is fitted with a very wide angle lens, and allows for even closer and detailed 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 two skids, which can be easily and quickly fitted to the camera head.
The real time video from the camera is displayed on a 15 inch digital colour screen, which is larger in order to make viewing even small details much easier than the smaller screens found on many other systems., 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 screen works well with the higher specification cameras, and is larger than the 7 and 9 inch screens for more information, coupled with the best image resolution. This particular inspection camera system can record video and save images to a SD card (up to 32GB), which is inserted into the control box card slot, and then can be downloaded to a PC and emailed to customers or included in reports.
A waterproof QWERTY keyboard is supplied in the 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.
The TX-60 sewer & drain pipe inspection camera system is powered by a rechargeable 12V Li-Ion battery pack for complete portability, giving a run time of more than approximately 4 hours per charge.
