Industrial videoendoscope Piton with flexible insertion tube

Videoendoscope Piton is a multipurpose system for efficient inspection in all industrial applications, including power-generating plants, chemical, oil and gas plants, piping systems, locomotive and aircraft maintenance.

Video endoscopes Piton are designed for:
remote visual inspection of long cylindrical objects like pipes, headers etc. with length up to 25m;
visual inspection of technically sophisticated units and blocks hided from direct view;
operative inspection of containers, reservoirs without external light aimed to check presence of foreign objects and to inspect mechanisms and technical equipment.

Endoscope Piton includes:
unit designed to transmit video signal from camera unit mounted on flexible insertion tube (hereinafter referred to as transmitting unit);
unit designed to receive and recorder video signal (hereinafter referred to as receiving unit).

The model range of endoscope Piton includes following models:
SMT-10-P13-TV15 (Insertion tube length 10m, Camera unit diameter 15mm, P Piton, TV videoscope);
SMT-15-P13-TV15 (Insertion tube length 15m, Camera unit diameter 15mm, P Piton, TV videoscope);
SMT-20-P13-TV15 (Insertion tube length 20m, Camera unit diameter 15mm, P Piton, TV videoscope);
SMT-25-P13-TV15 (Insertion tube length 25m, Camera unit diameter 15mm, P Piton, TV videoscope).

The following actions could be performed using endoscope Piton:
visual inspection with real-time video on the display;
video recording and further viewing and examination of possible defects;
playing recorded video files;
uploading recorded video files to computer for further processing and archiving;
external TV-set or video-recorder connection to the receiving unit;
external TV-set or projector connection to the portable video player.

Transmitting unit consists of a barrel mounted on firm steel frame. Flexible insertion tube can be easily wound off through guide arm. Inthe center of the barrel battery module is situated.

On the control panel the following elements are placed: power indicator, lighter regulator, battery discharge indicator, charger XLR socket, power switch and six studs to prevent insertion tube from deformation.

Insertion tube is flexible and ends with distal end and camera unit connector. Distal end articulation is manually adjustable. Incase of radial inspection one should bend distal end before work and rotate insertion tube during inspection.

Resolution of video endoscope is higher than resolution of fiber-optical endoscopes but is limited by physical resolution of video cameras (about 400TVL).
Power lighter scheme is based on LED driver to provide constant lighter voltage and constant brightness even when the battery is partially discharged.

Receiving unit is mounted in the handy aluminium safe case. Onthe control panel of receiving unit the following elements are placed: battery module, video player, video player case, video player charger, composite video out connector, charger XLR socket, power button, power indicator and battery discharge indicator.

Transmitting and receiving units are not connected with wires. Totransmit video signal wireless technology is used. Thustransmitting and receiver units can be placed separately during inspection at the distance between each other up to 7m. Thisprovides additional mobility to the endoscopePiton.

Portable video capture device with embedded HDD is used to recorder inspection results and to upload video files to computer or laptop for further processing and archiving.

For power supply lead-acid accumulator batteries DELTA DT12022 of 2.2 Ah capacity are used. Batteries are hermetically sealed and made on technology with the gel electrolyte. Onebattery is mounted inside the transmitting unit and another inside the receivingunit.

For charging these batteries ANSMANN ALCS 2-24A charger is used. Factory crocodile clips are replaced with XLR-jack. Charger provides overcharging protection, trickle charge and protection against short-circuit and reverse-connect.

For internal inspection of cylindrical objects like pipes special mechanical equipment is used. Itconsists of centrator, spacers and extender sections.

Centrator is used for axial positioning of the insertion tube inside the cylindrical object.

Three bundles of spacers have different length and make it possible to centralize the insertion tube inside pipes with diameter from 100to 300mm andmore.

With the help of extender one could push the centrator and manipulate insertion tube insidepipes.

Attention! Endoscope Piton is designed only for industrial purposes. Itis prohibited to use the endoscope for medical purposes.
Endoscope Piton is not designed for inspection of corrosive environment, highly inflammable liquids (petrol, kerosene, oils etc.), acids, alkalies, dissolvents, highly explosives and radioactive materials.
It is strongly prohibited to immerse insertion tube in any liquids (including water). Itis also prohibited to inspect petrol level in petrol tanks.
