When Detail is Crucial: Side-Scanning Pipe Technologies

Inspecting sewers with side-scan technology can improve inspection efficiency by capturing additional detail. Side-scanning technologies, including Digisewer, an add-on camera for the ROVVER X, make for a more accurate and thorough inspection while requiring less time and expertise from inspection crews.

Side-scanning technology relies on software to convert video frames into a flat digital scan. The scan resembles a long strip whose length and width correspond to the length and circumference of the pipe, respectively. These scans capture a level of detail greater than conventional video and make it easier to review and analyze.
