IBAK PANORAMO Series 3D Optical Pipeline Scanners
Perhaps the greatest innovation in pipeline inspection technology in decades, the PANORAMO system is providing better data to engineers, reducing stress for operators, increasing productivity and changing the way we inspect our underground infrastructure. The revolutionary PANORAMO digital pipeline scanner will change the way you inspect pipelines. Inspect more than twice as much pipe per day, increase your image resolution six times over traditional CCTV, and reduce your operating costs by more than 30% compared to normal CCTV!
The IBAK PANORAMO 150 is a steerable camera system for operational pipeline diameters of 6 in. and up. As with the well-established PANORAMO 2 and the manhole camera PANORAMO SI, it features tried and tested 3D scanner technology – the user receives a 3D film containing the complete recordings of the entire pipe inspection as well as a processed illustration. . The viewer can move freely in the sewer pipe without any viewing restrictions, stop at any position, pan around 360°, zoom, look into inlets and even look backwards – all this without affecting the recorded imaging material in any way. All objects such as displaced joints, protruding pipe connections etc. can be viewed in detail from all sides.
The IBAK PANORAMO 2 features unique scanner technology for highly efficient sewer inspections in pipeline diameters of 8 in. and up. Pipe inspections can be carried out at a substantially higher speed than with conventional systems and the user receives a processed illustration in addition to the 3D film containing a seamless recording of the entire pipeline inspection.
With the PANORAMO SI, the user has the distinctive advantages of PANORAMO technology also at their disposal for manhole inspection. The result of this is the ability to visually assess the condition of manholes quickly and completely. The 3D scanner uses two high-resolution digital cameras with specially designed distortion-free wide-angle lenses which can optically scan the entire interior of the manhole in a few seconds in one single vertical run. The digitally transmitted image data is immediately at the operator‘s disposal as a live picture for evaluations of the condition of the manhole in the office or directly on site.
Performance is Key
PANORAMO is fast. Users collect data at a rate of up to 69 ft. (21m) per minute (40 ft. (12m) per min with PANORAMO 150) without needing to stop. All this adds up to a technology that reduces your cost, increases your production and dramatically enhances your deliverables.
Unlike conventional sewer TV systems it uses two high-resolution digital photo cameras with 185° fish-eye lenses, which each take images at distances of 5 cm. These are then automatically put together to create a true 3D interior view of the complete sewer pipe. This allows evaluation of the pipe condition in the office at any time and the viewer can move freely in the sewer pipe without any viewing restrictions.
The PANORAMO Principle – Changing Your Process
IBAK designed PANORAMO from the ground up to address the weaknesses of traditional video technology. The PANORAMO method changes your current process into one of data collection in the field and data analysis back in the office. This division of labor increases safety, reduces mistakes and increases productivity. The technology enables your employees to work to their potential and avoid costly and time-consuming mistakes caused by inattention or stress.
The PANORAMO 2 and PANORAMO 150 capture a complete 360° Perspective View AND a high resolution Unfolded View of the pipeline as it travels. The Unfolded View allows you to look at the entire pipe segment on one screen for quick and easy defect acquisition.
You will find that IBAK's patented 360° Perspective View is required for detailed analysis of pipeline observations. No other system provides you with as much real visual data, or gives you such sophisticated tools to analyze it.
PANORAMO SI Portable Manhole System
The PANORAMO SI has revolutionized the way system owners inspect their buried structures. Manholes, duct boxes, storm drains, and any other udnergroudn chamber can be inspected quickly and safely with this system. Keep your employees safe, increase the productivity and accuracy of your crews and provide data that helps system owners make informed decisions!
The portable PANORAMO SI system has proven itself as an affordable, flexible alternative to a fixed truck mounted system. The command and control platform is perfect for operating on an all terrain vehicle or can easily be deployed out of a pickup truck or cargo van. All electronics are mounted in a shock-resistant case that protects critical system components from damage. The unique skid design allows the system to easily be moved by a forklift or by hand.
Easy Data Collection – Amazing Results
Inspecting a manhole with PANORAMO SI is as simple as 1-2-3. All you have to do is lower the unit into the manhole, turn it on, and pull it back up! No other system captures the quality or quantity of data that PANORAMO SI does.
Types of Data
The PANORAMO SI captures a complete 360° Perspective View of the manhole which you can view at any times, from any angle. The Unfolded View allows you to look at the entire manhole surface on one screen and the Geometric View allows you to measure features inside the manhole in three dimensional space. Simply export the Geometric View out to any CAD program to continue your analysis!
100% Coverage | More Than 4 Times Faster!
Other manhole inspection methods are slow, clumsy, and unsafe compared to PANORAMO SI. With its unique ability to capture every inch of the manhole from multiple angles – you will never miss an observation.
