Size It Up: ROVVER X's Advanced Measurement Capabilities

The ROVVER X inspection crawler is built on a sophisticated digital platform, one that offers software-based features other crawlers simply cannot. One such feature is ROVVER X’s advanced measurement capabilities. This suite of measurement tools comes standard with all ROVVER X systems, and employs adjustable screen overlays to calculate pipe diameter, bend and offset, as well as flow level and lateral angle/diameter. These tools greatly expand the scope of information that can be collected during an inspection.








In addition to these overlay-based measurement capabilities, the ROVVER X’s camera head is able to project laser reference dots 2 inches apart. When looking sideways at a pipe wall (or any other surface perpendicular to the camera’s viewing axis), these dots can be used to calibrate the pendant software for accurate measurement of any defect in the camera’s field of view.

The measurement functions described here can be used to enhance inspection reports. Crawler operators can quantify findings and minimize guesswork — all while getting detailed information about the pipe’s structure, blockages and defects.
