Inuktun Sighting #82: Remote Inspection Equipment in a Remote Place

When we talk about Remote Visual Inspection (RVI), the “remote” part normally describes how our Multi-Mission Modular (IM3) technology is used in hazardous environments, confined spaces and other areas where people can’t or don’t want to go. But, when our Versatrax 150™ (VT150) pipe inspection system was recently helicoptered into a valley in the Chugach mountains near Anchorage, Alaska, “remote access” took on extra meaning.

When they had a need for an IECEx Zone 1 rated camera system, they went looking on the market. But they had no luck. So, instead, they decided to build their own. Rather than develop everything from the ground up, they contacted Inuktun and purchased our Spectrum 90™ PTZ cameras, with a specialized control interface to work with their Ex rated PC system. Even though the Spectrum cameras are not (yet) certified for use in explosive atmospheres, Oceanvision’s engineers were able to achieve compliance with the IECEx directives by denying power to the camera until it was fully submerged (reminiscent of a similar Inuktun project for Lateral AS).
