A powerful, remotely operated, automated scanner. Perform a multitude of complex weld and corrosion scans using any number of accessories.

The SKOOT - Base Crawler is a powerful automated scanner. The ability to carry multiple attachments and various accessories while traversing all types of magnetic surfaces make the SKOOT an extremely versatile scanning device. This remotely operated scanning platform can be outfitted with probe holder frames for weld inspection or a raster arm for automated two-axis corrosion scans.

Part ID: DNG001

Features

Low Profile Design

The SKOOT requires a radial clearance of 11.4 cm (4.5 in), which allows for inspection in limited access applications.4

Magnetic Wheels

Using rare-earth magnets, the SKOOT can operate on vertical, horizontal and inverted surfaces.

Scan Versatility

The SKOOT can facilitate circumferential scans on pipes as small as 6.4 cm (2.5 in) OD and 68.6 cm (27 in) ID. In addition, flat surface scans and longitudinal scanning on pipes as small as 76.2 cm (30 in) OD are available. 

Backpack

The optional backpack conveniently carries ultrasonic accessories with the unit.

Modular Design

Various probe holder frames and lengths of raster arms are available for use with the SKOOT.

Remote Operation

Motor control technology achieves precision crawler drive and programmable remote operation.

Built-in Encoder

An encoder is integrated into the body of the SKOOT. The encoder output is fully compatible with all standard instruments.

Warranty

3-year limited warranty on all products.

Component Identification

Base Crawler

Four highly magnetic wheels propel the SKOOT crawler along ferrous surfaces. Attach a multitude of weld and corrosion scanning accessories to the crawler which features cable management and integrated encoder.

Backpack

A flexible strap securely holds any pre-amp, splitters or scan accessories to the SKOOT crawler.

Manipulation Handle

Slight steering adjustments and crawler manipulation is achieved using the manipulation handle.

Power Controller

Configurable for North American or European electrical standards, the power controller is a sophisticated operating platform and connection point for instrumentation and handheld controllers.

Handheld Controller

Precision forward and reverse drive control, programmable y-axis control and system diagnostics are all accessed using handheld controller's touchscreen and joysticks.
