We’d like to give a shout out to our internal Team Versatrax who made the commitment to commute via bicycle to work at our Nanaimo location. Bike to Work Week is an annual event that supports a safe, fun cycling experience; the event celebrates active transportation to work and greenhouse gases saved through the alternate mode of travel. And while on crawler tracks rather than wheels (to ensure maximum traction across the volatile environments it encounters), Inuktun’s Versatrax 300™ long range pipe inspection vehicle regularly treks distances over 2,000 metres (7,000 feet) in pipes as small as 300 millimetres (12 inches) diameter. Does its name make sense yet?
While not exactly taking in the scenery of the Tour de France, the OnDemand Specialty System VT300 can be found observing water pipelines, sewer lines, pulp and paper mill intake lines, among a number of other applications where inspection of long distances with limited access points is necessary. The fully steerable vehicle can transport additional sensors when remote visual inspection doesn’t provide all the details. Options for a high definition Spectrum 120HD™ camera with laser lines for onscreen size estimation, a rear-facing camera for tether management, manipulators for collecting and removing blockages and debris, and more - the versatility of the Versatrax 300™ is comprehensive.
The VT300 is available for rent with a great try before you buy option, and even a cargo trailer available for North American rentals. The Versatrax 300™ rental system was recently spotted performing extensive inspection work in Brazil, so stay tuned for the #InuktunInTheWild sighting.
Pushing pedals to the office and pushing the limits of what our Multi-Mission Modular (IM3) technology can do, our dedicated team is available by phone or email to help provide solutions to your remote inspection and sensing operations. We’re ready to go the distance!
