If you’ve ever had to deal with a blocked drain, you know how frustrating it can be. You also know how difficult it can be to find the cause of the blockage. That’s where a pole manhole camera comes in.
This useful tool allows you to see inside the drain, so you can locate the blockage and get it cleared out quickly. A pole manhole camera is also great for preventative maintenance. By regularly inspecting drains, you can catch problems early and avoid major issues down the road.
Nevertheless, the traditional method of sending operators for a direct visual inspection of a manhole comes to a price. And for towns and cities, who need to inspect manholes frequently, cost-effective solutions need to be found.
With the RV-PRO 360 pole manhole camera, you can perform a complete inspection of your manhole system, while requiring only one person to conduct the project.
The RV-PRO 360 allows a single unspecialized operator to inspect up to 80 manholes per day, thanks to a 30 feet long pole. Moreover, the full sphere of 360° video data captured during the inspection can be offloaded to external analysts rather than being analyzed onsite by the camera operator, allowing maximum uptime in the field.
In addition to lessening the impact on traffic and improving coding quality by keeping the operator’s attention on the task at hand, using the RV-PRO 360 manhole inspection system has the advantage of effectively lowering manhole inspection costs by increasing the number of inspected manholes per hour/day.
RinnoVision now provides remote coding of manhole inspection videos obtained using the RV-PRO 360 in accordance with the NASSCO standards, enabling contractors to receive payment from their clients more quickly and giving them a greater capacity without having to hire, train, and maintain a specific internal resource for this job.
RinnoVision is a Canadian company founded by underground infrastructure inspection professionals to meet specific needs in day-to-day operations. The reality of an increasingly competitive market sector, coupled with labour shortages, inspired RinnoVision to develop products that significantly improve the efficiency, time savings, safety and profitability of inspection operations.
“With the acquisition of the RV-PRO 360, we have won all along the line. Ease of use and all the accessories suited for multiple uses. A clear, 360 degree image in a single shot. The inspection time has been reduced a lot and the analysis of the videos has become much easier due to the sharpness of the image.”
Cédric Fougères, Ville de Montréal
“We are satisfied with its performance. Among other things, the RV-PRO 360 kit allowed us to discover that an element everyone thought was an AP was in fact a technical void under an old silo. The space was much larger than an underground chamber and the images were of good quality without additional lighting. With the kit, the inspection of this technical space was possible without having to take confined space entry procedures.”
Gaétan Caron, GDI Géoradar Détection
“Simple and easy to use. The RV-PRO 360 has been a great addition to our maintenance operations.”
Scott Tam, C.E.T., EP, City of Timmins
