Aries Industries has introduced the next generation of advanced sewer and pipeline assessment technology with the Voyager HD Mainline Inspection System. It combines a rugged tractor, innovative HD camera, and ergonomically advanced controller. It offers unmatched features and ease of use, and is designed with customer uptime in mind.
“Our research and development team gathered customer input, performance data and years of past Aries product experience to design the best-performing mainline video inspection system in the industry,” said Jim Kraschinsky, Vice President of Sales at Aries Industries. “The Voyager is a completely new, ground-up design that is made in America, and is further proof of Aries’ dedication to leading the industry. We are excited to have it out in the marketplace.”
The Voyager operates in pipes from 6” relined to 72” and provides unparalleled video quality through a fully-HD 1080p WiperCam® camera. This innovative pan and tilt HD camera with 120x zoom delivers a vivid, detailed analysis of pipe conditions. With Aries’ in-the-pipe lens cleaning technology, operators are able to keep the camera clear without needing to retrieve it from the pipe—saving time and maximizing productivity.
The Voyager tractor provides ultimate maneuverability, with a compact profile and all-wheel drive to navigate tough terrain. It comes equipped with a rear-viewing HD camera to monitor retrieval. Voyager’s multiple wheel configurations and a standard remotely operated integral camera lift gives operators flexibility to adjust to a variety type of pipe conditions and sizes. Both the camera and cable can be attached/detached without the need for tools.
A key element of the Voyager HD Mainline Inspection System is its robust ergonomic desktop joystick controller, which makes operation easier and more efficient. The digital CANbus controller delivers instantaneous crawler and camera response, giving operators unmatched fingertip control during inspections. Real-time diagnostic monitoring metrics supply the operator with key crawler and camera functions. A handheld pendant is included to enable control of the system from the manhole.
The vehicle-mounted Voyager is designed and built at Aries Industries’ U.S. plant. Every element was developed to ensure ease of use and maintenance. Its 1200’-foot cable reduces truck setup time and includes simple reel termination, quick one-button downrigger deployment, spring-loaded retractable cable rollers and field-serviceable slipring to save both labor and logistical costs. The tractor has autonomous time-saving functions such as auto-drive to waypoints and auto-retrieve. The camera includes field-replaceable wipers to keep crews up and running on the job site. Together, these features make Voyager the most responsive and efficient mainline inspection system on the market.
