Questions and Answers

Can the wheels move independently of each other? In other words: how likely will the crawler get stuck in debris?
Written by M.P. 7/27/2017
The crawler is a constant 4-wheel drive since it has only one motor inside it.

If it was to have 4 much smaller motors they would not have enough power to be useful.

In such conditions, an experienced operator would assess the risk of continuing with the survey, if the crawler got stuck, then the cable is strong enough to pull back the crawler until it can get traction again.

However, in most situations where there is heavy mud or debris, an operator would abandon the survey, and return after the pipe has been cleaned with a jetting unit, after all, the main point of the inspection is to check the actual condition of the pipe itself, which would not be possible if there is a large amount of debris inside.
Is there any sort of training documentation or training support that comes with the Crawler Stormer S3000?

The pipe inspection robot includes several modules that are easy to transport and assemble; the pan-and-tilt camera, insertion cable, CCU, cable reel and crawler. Optional accessories are available upon request.

The pan-and-tilt camera features continuous rotation and is equipped with a 0.5 lux sensitive, high-definition CMOS camera chip (720x 576 pixels) and provides a high-quality well-rounded image of the pipeline. It is protected by a scratch proof front window to prevent image impairment during inspections in abrasive settings. The camera is completely waterproof and comes in a Stainless steel housing with an Aluminum anodized finish, it can withstand up to 5.5 bars of pressure (180 feet freshwater). Illumination is provided by 5th generation high-output LED lights with 5 levels of intensity and a domed lens, allowing for even distribution of the light.

The tear and wear-resistant, multi-core, Kevlar braided insertion probe is designed to undergo multiple inspections in abrasive environments. It is coiled on a sturdy Stainless steel reel with an on-screen depth counter. The STORMER S3000 pipe inspection robot comes with a standard 200m (656') probe but is available in a 250m (820') length, as well.

The crawler features an extremely adjustable design that can be modified within seconds depending on the diameter of your pipes or other inspection requirements. It has a front camera mount for inspecting narrow diameter pipes, and a top camera mount for larger diameter lines. Its powerful 5 speed 15 Nm 4 wheel drive with chain transmission runs on a 48V DC motor. Different diameter wheel sets are included and can easily be adjusted based on your inspection settings. Optional accessories include an inclinometer that sends data on pipe gradients to the OSD display.

The inspection process is displayed on an LED-backlit 10.4" TFT flat panel monitor with 800x 600 resolution housed in a portable, heavy-duty Pelican case (13.5 kg). The system records files in MPEG2 format and utilizes WinCan compatible software. The information can be saved to the hard drive or a USB memory stick that is easily connected to the unit via the main control panel. The system also allows for up to 6 pages of inputted text.

The STORMER S3000 pipe crawler uses 110v or 240v mains or a 1KVA generator power inlet to power the unit. .
