Mini Pipe Profiling Sonar - 2512 Ethernet

2512 Ethernet Mini Pipe Profiling Sonar

The Model 2512 Pipe Profiling Sonar provides an acoustic method for profiling the interiors of liquid filled pipes or boreholes. This method does not require draining of the pipes as with camera surveys and provides accurate quantified data which can not be obtained from a camera display alone.

The equipment comprises of an underwater Scanning Unit (which may be skid, float, tractor or ROV mounted) and a compact Ethernet interface Unit. To complete the system a "Windows" P.C. with an Ethernet port is required to run the 2512E system software.

The Scanning Unit is a rugged stainless steel cylinder with a pressure balanced Peek transducer housing at one end, and the umbilical cable connector at the other. The standard Scanning Unit is rated at 100m operational depth. Two lead-acid batteries could be used to power the Scanning Unit together with a notebook P.C. for a completely portable solution. Internal Pitch and Roll sensors display, in analogue and digital form, the orientation of the sonar in the pipe.

The Ethernet Interface Unit connects to the host P.C. running under the "Windows" operating system (XP upwards is supported). The Ethernet Interface has inputs for a cable payout encoder so that the distance travelled may be displayed to 0.1m resolution allowing accurate determination of where flaws exist in the pipe relative to the deployment position. The Ethernet Interface is powered from the AC mains supply and is electrically isolated from the supply generated for the underwater scanner.
