Side-scan pipe with greater resolution, better illumination

The new DigiSewer III side-scan system for pipe inspection uses improved illumination and optics to capture sidewall detail with enhanced clarity. It delivers all the benefits of side-scanning - faster, more detailed pipe inspection with fewer man hours at a price point and learning curve even smaller municipalities and contractors can manage.

With DigiSewer side-scanning, inspection personnel no longer need to detect defects in live video, and then stop to investigate further. Instead, DigiSewer captures detailed visual data for the entire pipe at speeds of 35 up to 70 fpm, and then presents multiple views (side, forward, thumbnail and virtual 3D) that can be rapidly and thoroughly analyzed offline. As a result, DigiSewer yields triple the productivity of traditional CCTV inspection, all while optimizing data for rapid transmission and efficient storage (3000 ft./GB). What’s more, DigiSewer trends pipe inclination data, auto-recognizes joints and taps, and includes robust annotation and measurement tools. The system integrates with common asset management and GIS software applications, and supports NASSCO PACP defect codes.

 “Getting better infrastructure data faster shouldn’t be costly or complex,” says Richard Linder, president of Envirosight. “DigiSewer III embodies that philosophy more than ever, scanning with even better clarity at increased crawler speeds.”

DigiSewer III is available as an add-on package for ROVVER, ROVVER X and SuperVision video pipe inspection crawlers, and works interchangeably with traditional CCTV cameras to delivery maximum capability with minimum investment. A standalone DigiSewer III camera can be used to upgrade any existing DigiSewer system.
