WEFTEC 2016 Logo - Rausch USA

Rausch at WEFTEC 2016

Rausch USA is attending the 2016 WEFTEC (Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibit and Conference) in New Orleans, Louisiana on September 26th to 28th, 2016. The conference takes place in the New Orleans Morial Convention Center, and formally begins on Saturday the 24th, and we will have staff on site all weekend. However, the exhibit hall hours do not begin until Monday. It has been a while since Rausch has made a splash at the largest national water environment show, so this year we are bringing our full equipment lineup to booth #7347.

Equipment on display will include a brand new fully-equipped Rausch demo system installed in our signature Mercedes Sprinter layout. Our new MOBILE pro portable unit with the C 135 crawler and the minCam360 pan and tilt push system with the innovative steering skid RID will be featured as well.

We invite you to come to booth #7347 at WEFTEC 2016 in New Orleans in September – it is a great opportunity to experience our advanced inspection equipment and speak to our most knowledgeable representatives.

 

Rausch Manhole Inspection Camera

Manhole Inspection with Rausch Systems

Rausch CCTV Inspection trucks can be upgraded to perform manhole inspections – and with the right software, the inspections can adhere to NAASCO’s MACP standard. Manhole inspections require 4 pieces of Rausch equipment, 3 of which are standard on nearly every Rausch system we sell:

  1. Elka 600 cable drum
  2. KS 135 mainline camera with crack measurement
  3. ECO STAR 400 or Proline control unit
  4. Manhole Inspection Adapter Kit

The adapter kit consists of a mounting bracket for the Elka cable drum arm, an adapter to connect the KS 135 camera directly to the RAU9 mainline cable, and a telescopic pole which is secured to the bracket and connects to the KS 135 adapter. A tripod is also available to secure the pole firmly in place over the manhole.

By using the telescopic swivel arm of the Elka drum, the Manhole Inspection Unit can be centered over the manhole and then secured in place with the tripod. After securing the brake on the cable reel, release the locks on the pole’s extensions. By spooling out and rewinding the cable, the pole extends and retracts at a controlled speed, lowering and raising the pan and tilt KS 135 camera.

Connecting Push Cameras to Reporting Software

Push cameras are an essential tool for inspection crews, even with a Rausch lateral launch system. Integrating push camera video into reports is important – so we developed the Rausch Connector.

The RAU9 Rausch Connector is specially designed to connect the video from our self-leveling and pan/tilt push cameras – the mc50, mc50 duo, mc80, and minCam360 – to the inspection software in the system control room, while also providing power to the system via the DC charging port. It uses the mainline cable connection to interface the push camera video to the CCTV system’s computer and software – just disconnect the L 135 and connect the Rausch Connector.

Utilizing the Rausch Connector, operators can document continuous NASSCO-certified reports even when they switch to the standalone push camera systems.

RAU9 connector for minCam push cameras

RAU9 Connector connects to the BNC video out and DC power port on the push camera control unit.

All of our push cameras can connect directly to a laptop with inspection software via the video out port – the truck is not required. This tool makes it simple for Rausch operators!

IFAT 6

Rausch at 2016 IFAT

Adam Baker, Vice President of Sales, joined Stefan Rausch, CEO, and the team from Rausch in Germany for the 2016 IFAT Expo in Munich, Germany last week. The Rausch team announced some exciting new developments for the Rausch TV inspection product line, which we look forward to introducing to the US market in the coming months.

Wheels for Push Cameras

Rausch push cameras are mobile and compact systems, and only the hefty 64-pound mc80 unit comes with built-in wheels. Customers frequently ask if our smaller system are available with wheels too – and now, that is true for the mc50, mc50 duo, and minCam360 systems too.

The new Trolley accessory hooks into the stainless steel and carbon reel cage, allowing the push camera systems to be maneuvered as simply as any dolly. The handle telescopes up to By making this an accessory and not an upgrade, we allow our customers the convenient option of disconnecting the Trolley and carrying the system to hard-to-reach locations.

Trolley with Wheels for Push Camera Systems

The Trolley is available for all mc50, mc50 duo, and minCam360 systems and is available now. Contact your regional sales representatives or Rausch directly for more information.
