3D Panoramo Manhole Inspections

Now the revolutionary PANORAMO® technology is available for manhole inspections! PANORAMO®SI provides a complete 360º view of the manhole after the inspection, similar to normal PANORAMO® pipe segment files. 

The 3D Optoscanner uses two high resolution digital cameras with specially designed distortion-free wide-angle lenses. These optically scan the entire interior of the manhole in a few seconds in one single vertical run. The digitally transmitted image data can be viewed by the operator as if it were a live picture. The condition of the manhole is then assessed back in the office or directly on site

Unlike a video film from a conventional pan and rotate camera which only shows the section of view saved at the time of filming, the RapidView IBAK PANORAMO SI viewer software provides an all-round inspection of the manhole. The inspector can stop at any position in the manhole, do a 360° pan, zoom and take snapshots. Simultaneously, an unfolded view of the manhole can be generated. This gives a rapid overview of the condition of the structure and enables the user to measure objects on the manhole walls.


3D Point Cloud
The 3D point cloud allows users to measure nearly any feature in a pipeline or shaft. The point cloud can be exported in DXF format for processing further in your favorite CAD program. Below you can see the virtual pan & tilt view, the unfolded view, and the 3D point cloud view.
