The SewBot is an efficient camera tractor for the inspection of 200 mm pipes upwards. Its powerful drive enables proficient pipeline inspections over long distances. The electrically adjustable lift device positions the camera optimally in the pipe. In combination with the lowering device, the horizontally and vertically displaceable folding plug for the camera cable and the camera receptacle ensures simple, safe introduction of the camera tractor into the sewerline. After inspection, the fast reverse speed makes it possible to finish the work procedure quickly. All components and sub-assemblies are designed for maximum ruggedness and reliability. The unit is pressure tested to up to 10 bar.
