Next Level Vertical Structure Inspections

Now the revolutionary PANORAMO technology for vertical structure inspections. PANORAMO SI provides a complete 360 degree view of the vertical structure after the inspection, similar to normal PANORAMO pipe segment files.

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 vertical structure in a few seconds during a single vertical pass of the camera. The digitally transmitted image data can be viewed by the operator as if it were a live picture. The condition of the structure is then assessed back in the office or directly on site using MACP, Level 2 standards.


Revolutionary Data

Unlike a video film from a conventional pan and rotate camera which only shows the section of view saved at the time of filming, 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.

Undistorted images are seamlessly stitched together to provide a true, spherical view of the structure’s interior walls. Simply use your computer mouse to travel through the structure, much like in virtual reality. 100% of the structure wall imagery is stored in the file and can be viewed at any time.

 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 structure walls.

All this information is collected at lightning speed. As an example: a 20 foot deep structure can be completely scanned in less than 3 minutes. The customer can decide it R&R Visual technician perform the level 2 inspection, or they can take the data and perform their own inspection at their leisure.

Also, integrate these files into your GIS system so that everyone using you system can view any structure and perform an inspection or review needed data.
