The all new Clever Scan manhole inspection system scans and documents manhole conditions in great detail in just minutes.
- A flat scan with high-res imagery
- A virtual pan/tilt/zoom view
- A dense point cloud for 3D visualisation and CAD.
Clever Scan in action…
CleverScan sits over an open manhole. With the press of a button, the system’s probe descends into the manhole, capturing image data using five (5) HD cameras and building a dimensional profile using an array of four (4) lasers. An onboard rangefinder controls descent and determines when the scan is complete. Scan data is immediately transferred to a laptop running CleverScan software, where it can be viewed, annotated and shared.
CleverScanperforms a rapid, high-res, fully automated manhole inspection. You get a detailed image that captures detail from every centimeter of the manhole wall, plus adense point cloud that canbe easily merged into any CAD or 3D application. CleverScan’s compact, lightweight design travels anywhere and deploys in minutes.
Using five HD cameras and powerful illumination, CleverScan builds a detailed image scan and captures video. The scan presents high-res detail from every centimeter of the manhole wall, and allows an analyst to quickly scan for structural defects, infiltration and other features.
The scan data links seamlessly to WinCan VX allowing for detailed
interrogation, measuring tools, annotation and report production.
CleverScan’s four lasers capture
manhole geometry to a high-resolution point cloud. This
data is ideal for performing capacity studies, taking measurements for rehab projects and populating CAD models. Point cloud data is exportable in a variety of common formats and can be viewed directly in WinCan VX and WinCan Web.
A fully detailed manhole scan takes between 30 seconds and 3 minutes depending on depth, so productionrates are limited only by time and
As an example, intrials WinCan Europe completed 43 scans during a four-hour laneclosure on the M62 Motorway. Once positioned over a manhole, asingle button press initiates the scan. The system measures manhole depth, lowers the probe accordingly, and then assembles scan data for instant viewing in CleverScan software. From there, data can be transferred to WinCan’s CleverScan module for reporting and advanced analysis, and shared via WinCan Web.
CleverScan helps keep your per-manhole inspection costs at an industry low:
Productivity. When we inspect more manholes per day, the cost per manhole to the customer drops.
At ACS we provide video manhole inspection solutions to municipalities, civil and environmental engineers, and departments of transportation.
ACS Business Group is committed to ongoing innovation and delivering solutions that enhance productivity and inspection detail.
