IBAK KW 310 Synchronized Reel (984 ft cable capacity)
The KW 310 Synchronized Reel is a fully automatic motor-driven cable reel holding up to 984 ft. of cable. This reel, much like the KW 305, can be used in combination with LISY cable reels and with the PANORAMO Series of camera systems and fiber optic cables. The integrated traction regulating device synchronizes tractor and cable reel operation with this intelligent regulating system able to prevent the tractor from running over the camera cable at the same time ensuring that the tractor reverses at a consistent speed.
The integrated traction regulating device synchronizes camera tractor and cable winch operation: the cable is coiled onto and uncoiled from the winch in accordance with the speed of the camera tractor. This intelligent regulating system prevents the camera tractor from running over the camera cable and at the same time ensures that the camera tractor reverses at a consistent speed.
The swivel boom enables exact positioning of the camera system over the manhole. The relevant camera system can then be lowered safely and accurately into the manhole with the hoist, whilst the integrated workplace light provides optimum illumination of the manhole opening.
The automatic cable guide ensures even winding of the camera cable onto the winch.
In addition, the user can take advantage of the auto-stop function. This stops the camera tractor automatically at pre-defined positions when it is moving in reverse direction. This is particularly useful when it is approaching the entry manhole – a further example of the great user-friendliness of IBAK inspection systems.
The picture is transmitted safely and without loss by the KW 505 and KW 305 via optical fiber. The KW 505 can also be equipped with a thinner, lighter fiber optic cable to allow the cable winch to accommodate up to 1,968 feet and be operated using the BS 5.
