Single Cable Sonar TISCIT System

Sonar on Steerable Crawler Sonar on Steerable Crawler Sonar on Steerable Crawler and ATV

The Cobra Sonar Tiscit system operates on a SINGLE multi conductor Cobra ST cable capable of inspecting pipes either with a Steerable Crawler or a Float System. The Single Cable capability significantly improves production in the field. Contractors report doubling production with this configuration.

Single Cable Benefits -- Significantly Improves Production

Cobra customers utilizing the Single Cable Sonar and CCTV inspection system agree that this configuration meets every requirement. Using this system, the sonar crews are now able to perform video and sonar inspection of up to 4,000 feet of pipe a day compared to two cable reels and a limit of 1,500 feet…more than doubling production!

Using technology developed by Cobra, the system can operate: 1) Steerable Crawler with 2) Lighting capable of illuminating pipe up to 200 inches in diameter, 3) Cobra Pan, Tilt and Zoom Camera installed on a 4) Remote Elevator and a 5) Sonar Unit mounted on the front of the Crawler on the Cobra ST Cable up to 4000 ft./1200 meters in length.

The Crawler can be either track or wheel driven depending on the conditions encountered.

The Cobra Sonar Tiscit Unit along with the Cobra ST Cable can be installed on any multi conductor inspection unit by simply changing the existing cable to the Cobra ST Cable and terminating the cable to an electronic enclosure for use on a float system. A HV control unit is added to the electronics along with a USB sonar processor that delivers the sonar data to the Program used to display the sonar image at the operator control room. For more information on the installation of Sonar Tiscit equipment on your existing equipment or providing new Sonar Tiscit equipment call Cobra Technologies.
