We believe the Maxprobe to be the ultimate system, suitable for pipe sizes 17mm up to 450mm Ø. Two years in development, working with engineers from drainage companies, utilities, local authorities and franchises have culminated in the birth of what we think is the future of pipe inspection systems. The MaxProbe is packed with innovative and helpful features to enhance user efficiency and provides everything you need to carry out a professional drainage survey.

High Quality Pipe Inspection Images Captured By The Maxprobe


Posted on: May 11th, 2015

Maxprobe Pipe Inspection System with Wincan Embedded Reporting Software as standard

When purchasing a new CCTV drain camera a top consideration will be, does the unit capture high quality pipe inspection images? The Maxprobe from Scanprobe has an impressive specification and the picture quality is further enhanced while on site with the day light readable 10 inch screen which allows clear viewing during periods of bright sunlight . The Maxprobe camera unit delivers the following industry leading statistics:

 

Video Statistics:

Resolution = 720 x 576

Frames per Second = 25

Bitrate = 1500 kbps (average – will vary depending on movement and amount of colour) Video Encoder = H264 MPEG-4(part 10 -avc1)

* This video encoder provides highly efficient encoding so you obtain a better quality video for a smaller file size.

* This encoder gives more fluent and better quality playback than older encoders.

* Includes a modern encoding mechanism supported by most video players.

 

Display Statistics:

Size = 10.4″

Resolution = SVGA (800 x 600)

Number of Colours = 262k

DPI = 96 dpi (seems to be the statistic that smartphone/tablet/laptop manufacturers like to use and defines the pixels per inch)

* Large viewing area for videos on the Maxprobe, 86% of available screen real estate used to display video on recording and playback

 

Below are some recent examples of very high quality images captured directly by the Maxprobe:

Drain Camera Repairs


Posted on: December 12th, 2013

Many customers ask if we can repair competitors’ cameras, in theory all cameras are similar, they may vary in voltages and design, but there isn’t a lot of difference overall.  Over the years here at Scanprobe, we have repaired numerous competitors’ cameras and our repair team always strive to complete repairs to the highest possible standards.

 

When it comes to drain camera repairs, you tend to find that the more expensive the pipe inspection system is to purchase, the more complicated it is repair, customers should be aware of this when deciding which drain camera to purchase. Bear in mind that a drain camera is a tool, like a drill and they can fail, but unlike a drill a drain camera is a sensitive piece of electronic equipment, so care should be taken when using your camera system. Unlike most of our competitors, Scanprobe offer a same day drain camera repair service, and should we be unable to complete your repair in one day, we do offer loan units to use until your drain camera system has been repaired (subject to availability). You should also keep in mind that all drain cameras contain parts that through normal wear and tear will need repair/replacing after time such as the pushrod and nylon rollers. Scanprobe recommend that to prolong the life of your camera you should drop it into our workshop for a general service.

 

If you have purchased a competitors’ camera and need to have it repaired by Scanprobe we advise bringing it in and having one of our repair technicians assess the system to see if we can successfully carry out repairs. In the past we have repaired numerous competitors’ drain cameras, but are sometimes limited in what we can repair due to not carrying parts for other systems, although we will attempt to modify our own parts to fit other systems where possible. We have found 8/10 times we have successfully repaired other units. So yes, we can repair competitors’ drain cameras but depending on what parts we carry.

 

One of our team will be happy to advise you on any drain camera repairs needed.
