Description:

This 4WD robot is our easy to use robot for going into tight spaces with low ceiling height. It has a full pan and tilt camera with 10X optical zoom. Controlled wireless or tethered with a tablet as video is displayed in brilliant color. The mobile All Terrain Enclosed Robot (TP-630-000), is programmed and fully assembled complete with a tablet.

We offer three control methods for this robot: Wi-Fi (wireless), Wi-Fi and/or tethered IP (maximum of 250ft), and tethered RS-485 (up to 500ft). All use a provided tablet as the controller and video display. Wireless is good for inspections that have minimal obstructions between the tablet and the robot. Tethered is a must for navigating long distances into pipes and culverts. The different control options are further explained below in the control options section.

The robot has a PTZ IP dome camera mounted in the lid, so you can see where you are going. The pan goes 360 degrees and the tilt is 0 to +90 degrees. The camera has a 10X optical zoom. All the camera functions are controlled from the tablet as you stream the video. The tablet allow you to record the video or take still pictures that can be retrieved later. We also mount a lot of LED lights that can be remotely controlled to illuminate what ever you want to see.

The robot itself is an extremely rugged well-built robot. The wheels are axle mounted and are supported using sealed ball bearings. The motors allow this robot to climb walls (we've included a front bumper so its less likely to accidentally climb walls). This is a rugged frame made of 1/8" thick aluminum and includes our IG42 gear motors. The aluminum is all cut using CNC Plasma table for an exact fit-up and then hand welded. A removable roll cage is provided for protecting the dome camera.

Control Options:

We offer three control methods for this robot: Wi-Fi only, Wi-Fi and Tethered with 250ft Ethernet Cable, Wi-Fi and Tethered with 250ft Ethernet Spool, and tethered only with 500ft Ethernet Spool. All include the tablet, which is used as the controller and video display. We have upgraded the tablet to be the Microsoft Surface™ Wireless is good for inspections that have minimal obstructions between the tablet and the robot with a range less than 300ft. Tethered IP comes with a 250 foot spool or 250ft Ethernet cable. The tethered RS-485 control package comes with a 500 foot spool. We use high quality outdoor rated Tethers with waterproof connectors.

  • Wi-Fi Control System: For use in open areas and short distances into unobstructed areas. Wi-Fi will not typically work well underground, in pipes, etc. where the wireless signal is degraded or blocked.
  • Wi-Fi and Tethered System with 250ft Ethernet Cable: When the signal is too weak for wireless, plug in the supplied 250ft Ethernet cable to switch to tethered mode. We use high quality outdoor rated cable with waterproof connectors. With this option, the cable is not on a spool. Shorter lengths of the cable can be made. Contact us if you need a custom cable length.
  • Wi-Fi and Tethered System with 250ft Ethernet Spool: This is the same as the previous option except the cable comes on a spool. The spool allows easy deployment and retraction of the Ethernet cable.
  • Tethered System with 500ft Cable Spool: For those that know wireless will not work for your application and need to go up to 500ft, this is the best option. The robot will only operate when the tether is connected between the tablet and the robot. If you need a shorter cable, please contact us.

Other Options:

  • Encoder Option: This option allows you to keep track of the distance the robot has travelled and displays the information on the tablet controller. This is great for keeping track of where you are when you see something of note with the inspection camera. The distance is measured by keeping track of the pulses from each motor rotation.
  • Custom Paint Option: The robot comes standard painted SuperDroid Blue. If you would like a different color select the custom color and we will contact you for the paint color code.

Warranty:

  • SuperDroid Robots provides a 1 year warranty after shipment. See data sheet for full details.
  • Extended warranties, spare parts, and maintenance training is available, contact us with specific needs. Service agreements are also available.
