Automated Water Mains Inspections

Automated Water MainsAs An Industry leader in the water mains inspection field contracted Fast Automation to automate a world first inspection system. The system utilises a number of winches to insert a sterile inspection head (on the end of a purpose made Kevlar cable) into live water mains and then examines up to 1.5km of pipeline.

The project involved not only the automation of the mechanical system, but the recording and reporting of the valuable data. The system utilises Wonderware Intouch SCADA and Allen Bradley Rockwell Micrologix PLC's along with a tablet HMI and two 17" touchscreens.
