IBAK PANORAMO SI 3D Optical Scanner
Now the revolutionary PANORAMO technology is available for manhole inspections! PANORAMO SI provides a complete 360º view of the manhole after the inspection, similar to normal PANORAMO pipe segment files. Conduct inspections in a fraction of the time it would take you with traditional methods! Available as an add-on to your PANORAMO system or in a stand-alone version.
The 3D Optoscanner uses two high resolution digital cameras with specially designed distortion-free wide-angle lenses. These optically scan the entire interior of the manhole in a few seconds in one single vertical run. The digitally transmitted image data can be viewed by the operator as if it were a live picture. The condition of the manhole is then assessed back in the office or directly on site.
Unlike a video film from a conventional pan and rotate camera which only shows the section of view saved at the time of filming, the RapidView IBAK PANORAMO SI viewer software provides an all-round inspection of the manhole. The inspector can stop at any position in the manhole, do a 360° pan, zoom and take snapshots. Simultaneously, an unfolded view of the manhole can be generated. This gives a rapid overview of the condition of the structure and enables the user to measure objects on the manhole walls. Complete MACP inspection can be completed using compatible software such as PipeLogix’s Flex-Data.
The 3D point cloud allows users to measure nearly any feature in a pipeline or shaft. The point cloud can be exported in DXF format for processing further in your favorite CAD program. In the video below you can see the virtual pan & tilt view, the unfolded view, and the 3D point cloud view available to operators with the PANORAMO SI System.
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.
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 underground chambers 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.
