The IBAK RETRUS is a back-eye camera which can be used on almost all IBAK camera tractors.
The RETRUS allows easier and safer reversing in many situations. Problematic areas detected during forward travel, such as protruding obstructions, damage and displacements are recognised during reversing, so that the operator can react accordingly and prevent damage to the system.
Optimised synchronisation between IBAK winches and IBAK camera tractors guarantees a maximum range at constant speed and a fast automated reversing. However, there are situations where controlling the reverse procedure with a back-eye camera is recommended. For example, if a steerable tractor is in a rectangular conduit, RETRUS makes the reversing procedure for the inspector easier. The danger of a collision between camera tractor and pipe wall is avoided using the back-eye option.
RETRUS also offers invaluable advantages when it comes to reversing with a disconnected winch (with synchronisation switched off). The danger of the camera tractor running over the camera cable is minimised with the back-eye camera.
