The SteerROVER™ portable motorized scanner is based on the field-proven MapROVER™scanner, but adds steering capabilities so that users can position it from a distance. This functionality is useful when inspecting large ferromagnetic surfaces, such as pressure vessels and tanks, where the area to be inspected is out of the operator’s reach.
The scanner can be configured for corrosion mapping with a motorized raster arm or for weld inspection (both longitudinal and circumferential) with a probe holder rack. The scanner is controlled using an intuitive touch screen remote control, so there is no need to bring a laptop to the inspection site. The only connection is between the power controller and the OmniScan® or FOCUS PX™ flaw detector’s encoder input.
