The PTW-42 is a 4WD inspection robot meant for large pipes, crawlspaces, and general outdoor inspections. The robot is controlled with a tablet, which also displays video from the camera. The mobile All Terrain Enclosed Robot is programmed and fully assembled complete with a touchscreen tablet or Enclosed Case Remote.

The robot has a 360° pan-tilt camera with 20X optical zoom. All the camera functions are controlled from the tablet as you stream the video. The tablet allows you to record the video or take still pictures that can be retrieved later. The camera has IR capability, so it can see in all lighting conditions. We also mount LED lights that can be remotely controlled to illuminate in front of the robot.

  • Enclosed Case Remote: Enclosed in a durable hard plastic case. Spring-loaded joysticks for drive and camera controls offer the operator better feedback and more precise control of the robot. They also make it easier to operate the robot while wearing gloves. LCD Touchscreen displays camera feed and controls other functions of the robot.

These controllers can connect using two different methods, wireless and tethered. The WiFi control system is great for operating the robot up to 300 feet away with a direct line of sight.

A tethered system is necessary for areas with obstructions, underground sections, or pipes. Our tether system includes a spool for easy deployment and cable management.
