This is a complete inspection robot package, designed for the home inspector. The robot uses a High Definition Camera mounted with a custom actuated tilt bracket. High power LED lights are fixed to the tilt bracket allowing for good visibility in dark places. With these features the low profile mobile robot allows the inspector great coverage and the ability to see in detail in difficult to reach areas. We also install a 7 inch Monitor on the remote control that the operator is able to view. There is a separate transmitter that sends the video image back without any lag.
Video can be recorded directly onto an SD card in the camera for full HD viewing. The robot is controlled using a
FLYSKY remote and the video is sent over 5.8Ghz to the included 7 inch LCD screen. Range is significantly increased with this system when compared to the SGT-32P, however it is still wireless and has its limitations. This should not be used in tunnels or areas with heavy electrical interference or obstructions. The video is recorded locally on the robot's camera SD card, so even if the video feed drops out or gets choppy, you still get a clean recording. This robot is ideally suited for crawl spaces under houses and in attics when inspecting houses. The optional snapshot and record function allows you to take snapshots on the fly or to stop and start the video recording with the remote.
The robot is designed and fabricated in North Carolina USA and fully supported by SuperDroid Robots, an industry leader in robotics. This is not a plastic imported robot that will disappoint you. It performs exceptionally well for its size and is intended as a small maneuverable tracked robot platform.
The tracked robot is built on an aluminum chassis and uses durable components (UHMW wheels, bronze bearings, etc.). Each track is driven by a planetary gear motor delivering smooth reliable power. The wheels are mounted directly to the motor output shaft and an idler wheel is bolted to the chassis. The motor and track combination allow this robot to go over most terrain, yet its size makes it very maneuverable indoors. The robot uses differential steering (movement is based on two separately driven wheels placed on either side of the robot body. It can thus change its direction by varying the relative rate of rotation of its tracks).
The robot is configured as listed below. If you require customization, please fill out our
custom robot request form. Applications:
Remote Inspection - Remotely inspect areas that are not easily accessible to people. Record the video in Full HD on the provided Camera and SD Card.
Entry into difficult areas - This tracked robot has the ability to traverse many obstacles that often stop other robots.
Crawl Space and Attic Inspection - Compact and lightweight to easily fit into crawl spaces or attics. Video is viewed using the included 7 inch monitor mounted to the controller. Wireless signal must be maintained. Not recommended for pipes, culverts, long distances, etc. where wireless signal will not work. Specifications:
Dimensions: 12.5"Long X 9.5"Wide X 6.5" High
Capacity: Handles 5lbs. of additional payload in most terrains
Speed: Up to 85 fpm
Weight: The total weight of this robot configuration is ~ 6lbs
Assembly: Fully assembled, tested, and ready to go!
RunTime: Up to 2 hours of operation depending on use
The video transmission is from the Robot to your Controller with 5.8Ghz. The range and performance can be significantly impacted by the environment and obstructions. We have tested the video and were able to get up to 500 feet. However, this can be significantly less with obstructions, bad/noisy environment. The best way to operate the robot is to keep line of sight between the robot and the remote. If that isn't possible then it is recommended that the transmission distance (distance between the robot and the remote) is kept to a minimum. This may mean walking through the house above the robot or walking alongside the robot on the other side of a wall.
This robot not recommended for underground or long distance pipe inspection. This is a simple and robust system for inspecting areas you that are difficult to access and/or you don't want to be. We have tested many different systems for crawl space and attic inspection, and this robot is the best solution for clear video and simplicity. If you need longer range or underground inspection you will need to use one of our tethered inspection robots.
Tracked Robot, assembled and tested
Battery charger (included with default configuration, see battery options below)
Remote with 7 inch LCD screen and 5.8Ghz receiver
Camera Tilt System for 1080p Camera with SD card slot. (-10 degrees to +70 degrees)
LED Lights mounted on Tilt Bracket
16GB micro SD Card
Remote Camera Operation: Select if you want to stop and start the recording to the SD card remotely. This feature also allows you to take snapshots while inspecting. We recommend this option, it makes the inspection documentation process a lot easier and more organized.
Battery Options: As a default we provide Lithium Ion Batteries and chargers. The Lithium batteries are internal to the robot and can not be removed without removing the lid. As an alternative we have a DeWalt 20V Lithium Battery mount that accepts 20V Lithium DeWalt batteries for easy removal and replacement. We offer two configurations for the DeWalt batteries. (1) You supply batteries and charger (2) We supply two 2Ahr DeWalt 20V Lithium Battery and fast charger. Note: Any 20V Lithium DeWalt battery will work with the DeWalt battery system upgrade.
Storage/Transport Case: Select if you want the optional pelican case to keep the robot in. The case is foam lined and we cut it out so your robot and remote are securely stored. If this option is not selected, it will be shipped in a cardboard box that is not reusable. We strongly recommend the pelican case, it is a great value and protects the robot during shipping and transport to the job sites, etc. Documentation and Support:
