P350 flexitrax - Modular Crawler System
Commercial video inspection
Crawler system operators often face a choice between portability with limited functionality, or complex and bulky systems for bigger pipes. Pearpoint’s P350 system features intuitive joystick controls and a remote-controlled powered elevator. It delivers a durable, modular system that is capable of centered inspection in large pipes, but is also highly portable for easy transport.
Tailor the system to meet your requirements
- Choose between a cost-effective manual cable drum or an advanced powered drum — each with up to 1000' / 305m of cable
- Choose from three interchangeable cameras and two powerful crawlers that are designed to withstand the most challenging sub-surface conditions
- A wide choice of wheels, elevators and tires optimize the down-hole equipment to suit the pipe network being surveyed, enabling the P350 to inspect pipes as narrow as 4” / 100mm all the way up to 60” / 1500mm
The two P356 Cradles have been designed to provide camera-centering in pipes as large as 60” (1500mm) in diameter when used in conjunction with the Powered Elevator (see below). The Standard Cradle can be deployed via a 23” (600mm) manhole and features 13” (330mm) wheels to allow it to climb over obstacles such as 4” (100mm) house bricks. The Compact Cradle is for deployment through 21” (530mm) manholes and can lift a camera to the center of a 53” (1345mm) pipe. Mounting of the P356 is quick and easy, requiring no specialist tools. Once the P356’s wheels have been removed, the crawler is fixed in place with one simple hand-screw, making the addition of the P356 Cradles to your P350 flexitrax system very straightforward.
The remote-controlled powered elevator enables you to perform surveys of larger drains and culverts, with the camera centered in the pipe. The motorised design allows you to deploy the system through smaller access points in its lowered state, before raising it to center in the pipe being inspected. The system can also be raised or lowered to center as pipe diameters change during a survey, or to maneuver around obstructions. The elevator can be fitted to your current P356 crawler as a simple upgrade. Attached via a simple thumbscrew mechanism, the elevator can be quickly removed to perform surveys in pipes as small as 6” / 150mm in diameter.
Intuitive joystick control over crawler and camera functions and dedicated one-touch controls make the P350 system easy to use, and lets you drive any drum, crawler and camera combination. A full PC-style keyboard makes rapid reporting easy – and provides shortcuts to directly access advanced digital features. The command module also provides Mimic® display – an on-screen tool that indicates where the system camera is pointing, and provides a simple way to direct its movement.
The P350 flexitrax system is designed and built for continuous operation and easy maintenance. Operators can carry out many common repairs on-site, with no need for complex pressurization or sealing kits. Pearpoint’s global service network provide comprehensive service and repair with rapid turn-around times.
Designed for field use, the light-weight command module, drum and pushrod reels provide a durable buffer between the elements and your survey data, with a weatherproof (IP53) protection rating. The crawlers and cameras can operate fully submersed and are water resistant (IP68) to depths of up to 330' (100m).
P340 flexiprobe pushrod reels and cameras can be connected directly to the flexitrax system, allowing you to switch from crawler to pushrod operation at the touch of a button. The P340 flexiprobe range offers a choice of 2 rugged cameras (1"/25mm and 2"/50mm) and 3 different reel sizes (100'/30m to 500'/150m) with different rod flexibilities and sondes to best suit your application.
The P350 command module offers a customizable built-in reporting system, capable of creating and exporting detailed MSCC5 compliant drain or inspection chamber survey reports. The integrated sensitive inclinometer and the multi-frequency sonde allow you to map pipeline topography easily and efficiently. Use the HTML report creator or XML output capabilities of the command module to document all your work, on site with no need to use a PC or laptop on site. When used with compatible Laser Scanning software, the P350 Laser Profiler accessory provides you with detailed pipe measurements such as deformation, internal diameter and expected capacity simplifying tasks like adoption or pre/post rehabilitation surveys. The variable laser profiler can project a circular ring in pipes as small as 4” / 100mm, and in pipes over 3’ / 1m diameter from a single device. Laser profilers can be fitted to the P350 Pan & Tilt and Pan, Tilt & Zoom cameras.
The P350 flexitrax system offers a choice of three high-resolution crawler cameras (Forward View, Pan & Tilt or Pan & Tilt with 10x Optical Zoom); each with ultra-bright, white LED lighting for use across different pipe materials. An optional external lighthead provides additional lighting for very large or dark pipes, ensuring clarity of view.
Pearpoint provides a range of standard fixing kits to facilitate permanent or flexible installation of the P350 system in vehicles. Pearpoint also works alongside a range of approved vehicle fitters to deliver custom fit-outs in vehicles that suit customers' needs.
The modularity of the P350 flexitrax system enables a range of transport options. The system can be van or truck mounted, yet is easily dismounted to be wheeled on-site using the ergonomic barrow design, allowing you to reach conduits beyond the range of your vehicle. Once on site, the system is quick and easy to set-up and deploy.
