The T804 is designed to be fully portable, powered by an advanced power cell which allows up to six hours operation from a single charge with recharge achieved in hours. The power cell simply snaps into the frame and is automatically connected to the system. The T804 utilises the proven reliability of the T800 camera from Troglotech.
The picture to the right here shows the fully loaded T804 complete with power cell, text writer and DVR, ready for a day's inspection work.
Portability is nothing if you need to carry a video recorder, the T804 has a custom designed high resolution digital video recorder built in to the display unit. The recorder is designed for the industrial market and includes useful features such as:
- One touch recording
- One touch playback
- Up to 8 hours recording time
- Fully waterproof
- Audio recording
The T804 can be supplied in many configurations, the base system includes 5.6" high-brightness LCD monitor, high accuracy rod counter, 61M (200ft) of specialist rod and On-Screen-Display. The display unit includes composite video outputs and inputs.
The top-level unit also includes a fully integrated text writer, power cell and digital video recorder. The T804 system is fully compatible with Wincan reporting software. Troglotech is an approved Wincan-compatible manufacturer.
This digital push-rod system can be configured to operate vertically or horizontally where access is limited. Control of the rod is achieved with the assistance of a proportional brake which allows fine friction adjustment.
This system is easily transportable, is perfectly balanced and allows the display unit to be folded flat giving access to a sculpted handle. The unit is designed to be operated in all weathers and is fully sealed against water ingress. The frame and coiler is constructed from thick-walled tubing which is powder coated. The mechanical design is modular and has easily replaceable major assemblies for simple servicing.
This fully digital system records directly onto CF card with the option of transfer to DVD on-site. The CF card is fully solid-state with no moving-parts and is highly robust. It does not suffer from damage as DVD disks can and requires no 'finalising' or further manipulation. The Troglotech recorder uses the industry-standard MPEG format for direct viewing on any PC running Windows. Using this system Troglotech avoids the weaknesses of recording directly to DVD which is not suitable for this environment.
The usual downside to digital recording is the complicated control system, Troglotech has designed their system to be easier to use than VHS recording. One touch recording and one touch playback is further enhanced by on-screen display of remaining record time, again enabled by a one-touch display button. No need for tape rewinding or the worries of high humidity this digital recorder keeps going in all weathers.
