The XR Spider is an innovative ultrasonic scanner that addresses the need for an automated raster type unit. It offers higher performance and durability over an extended range of applications. The scanner traverses large vessels with obstacles that are problematic for most tank crawlers. It is capable of performing corrosion scanning on pipes as small as 2” while requiring no probe adjustments over the range.
The scanner offers high maneuverability via steering with the controller’s touch screen interface or optional extended joystick. A parking function lifts the advanced transducer/coupling shoe assembly for crossing over larger obstacles. High scanning speed is achieved without sacrificing high torque and actuator force, and the specially engineered gears are coupled directly to all four wheels through a compact, sealed enclosure for durability and low maintenance. A home positioning routine is utilized with solid state end sensors for collision control. This rugged scanner provides highly accurate, high speed scanning for a wide variety of industries.
