System Description

The HDTI-10A-TIP6-3.5Z is a tanker inspection system with a 30X optical zoom color camera mounted on a joystick-like t-pole that has a metal bar that is meant to span and sit on a man-way. The system’s main application is as an inspection tool for rail tankers or tanker trucks that increases the safety and effectiveness of an inspection operation by providing video of the interior of a tanker without the need to have the inspector enter the space. This system can also be used in a confined space entry operation by being used by the attendant to visually see into the tank and keep an eye on the entrant who had to enter.


The system is a hand held pole camera that can transmit encrypted, low-latency (delay), WiFi images that are viewed on to a 10” tablet. The system also supports wired operation in situations where wireless operation is not feasible. The tablet features a removable battery that is hot-swappable. This negates the need to take the tablet out of service if its battery gets low. The tablet can be handheld or mounted using any 3rd party 10” tablet mounts at the user’s discretion. It is configured with a pole mounted camera that telescopes out to yield a total system length of 6 feet including the handle. Once the system’s t-pole is seated on the man-way, the camera is positioned using the poles joystick-like design to see the entire interior of any tank. Videos and still images can be saved on the tablet for archival purposes and to provide proof of a successful inspection. The 10” tablet display was selected for this system features a rugged, industrial design, excellent screen brightness and resolution. It also has a removable SD card that can be removed to archive captured images and video clips.


This hand-held pole camera system and display can be used as an inspection tool to increase the safety and effectiveness of tanker inspections by remaining outside of the confined space. The system allows operators to see into confined spaces that may harbor an unknown and hidden danger, such as limited oxygen, using a 30X optical zoom camera that supports up to 1080P resolution. The modular design is ruggedly built and compatible with many other Zistos specialty cameras such as thermal, low-light and valve inspection cameras.


The system is ideally suited for looking into confined spaces such as tanks, vats, vaults, silos, large void spaces, etc. It allows inspectors to see within a confined space as well as monitor an entrant who has entered without having to enter themselves.
