IBAK KW 305, KW 310 and KW 505 are fully automatic, motor- driven cable winches which hold up to 600 m (KW 505 with BS5) of camera cable. All three are designed for the operation with IBAK camera tractors and cameras. Furthermore, the IBAK LISY camera tractors, in combination with the LISY reels, are operated with KW 305/310/505. The IBAK optoscanner PANORAMO, PANORAMO 150 and PANORAMO SI can be operated with KW 310 and KW 505 (with FO cable). The integrated traction-regulating device synchronises camera tractor and cable winch operation: the cable is coiled and uncoiled onto the winch according to the speed of the camera tractor. This intelligent regulating system prevents the camera tractor from run- ning over the camera cable and at the same time ensures that the camera tractor reverses at a consistent speed. The swivel boom enables exact positioning of the camera system over the manhole. The respective camera system can then be low- ered safely and accurately into the manhole with the hoisting rope winch, whilst the integrated workplace light provides optimum illu- mination of the manhole opening. The automatic cable guide device ensures level winding of the camera cable onto the winch.
Furthermore the user can take advantage of the autostop function. This stops the camera tractor automatically at freely definable posi- tions when it is moving in reverse direction and this is particularly useful when it is approaching the entry manhole: a further example of the great user-friendliness of IBAK inspection systems.
Picture transmission on the KW 505 is performed digitally via optical fibre without loss and fail-safe. The KW 505 can also be equipped with a thinner, lighter fibre optic cable to allow the cable winch to accommodate up to 600 metres and be operated on the BS5.
