The operating process and precautions of the camera

December 14, 2023

The biggest role of the industrial endoscope is to inspect the trenchless nature of the pipeline, and check the leakage or blockage of the pipeline on the basis of no damage or excavation. 

There are many types of cameras on the market, but regardless of the brand of camera, they all use them in very different ways. Today's article will focus on how to operate a sewer camera.


Preparation phase


There are some preparations that need to be done before using a sewer camera for a plumbing inspection. This includes making sure that the camera's battery is sufficient for the entire workflow. 

According to the size of the pipe, choose the size of the camera head suitable for the pipeline, too small the push rod is not strong enough, too large cannot enter the pipe or cannot turn in the pipe. 

The camera head is a consumable product, so don't forget to install a protective device on the camera head.The purpose of which is to protect the camera head from being damaged by repeated impacts.


Use phase


After everything is ready, first open the camera's control box, turn on the camera, test whether the camera imaging is fresh, and then plug in the USB flash drive or SD card to feed the camera head into the pipe.

In the process of pushing the pusher forward, pay attention to whether the meter counting function is used normally to ensure that the fault location of the pipeline can be found in the correct position. 

Be careful not to use brute force when encountering a turning pipe, hold the pusher in your hand, use moderate force, and look for the right opportunity to push the camera head through the corner. 

After the camera head enters the pipe, the eyes need to be glued to the screen, and together with the movements of the hand, carefully observe the environment around the pipe to find the location of the damage. 

The environment inside the pipe is dark, and the LED lights can be adjusted appropriately to create a good observation environment to avoid overexposure and too much dimness.


After finding the problem, you need to take a photo or video record to facilitate the subsequent development of solutions. 

If necessary, you can directly type text on the screen or turn on the local recording function to record the internal environment of the pipeline in detail. 

During the process, pay attention to whether the photos and videos are working, and the best practice is to open the storage area after recording to see if they are recorded.


Completion phase


After understanding the condition of the pipeline, the process of withdrawing the camera head should not be rushed, and the camera head should be pulled back slowly. 

At the same time, because there is usually sewage inside the pipeline, it is important to wipe the cable withdrawn from the pipe with a rag. 

If possible, wipe the camera head with a cleaner to keep it clean and maintained. Unplug the USB flash drive or SD card, then turn off the control box, cover the light shield, and finally cover the control box.


For plumbers, a sewer camera is indispensable, acting as a human eye for the work, allowing them to enter the narrow pipes and survey the internal environment. 

The use of sewer cameras also requires technology, which is a process where practice makes perfect, more about the control of details, pay attention to camera maintenance, 

and it can accompany you to complete a lot of work.
