Iris Power Robotic Inspection Vehicle – (RIV800)

Sistema robótico fuera de línea de bajo perfil para pruebas, inspección e imagenología de máquinas
 

The Iris Power RIV800 Robotic Inspection Vehicle and Camera System, allows a visual inspection of the generator stator and rotor, including checking the air vents for debris, with or without removing the rotor. The robotic inspection vehicle also provides an automated means of EL CID electromagnetic core imperfection detection testing and SWA stator wedge analyzer testing.

The magnetically supported Robotic Inspection Vehicle (RIV 800) has been developed to provide an automated scanning method for the EL CID stator core interlaminar insulation test equipment. The vehicle allows scanning of the stator bore of a generator or large motor, in order to test the integrity of the stator lamination insulation out more efficiently. The equipment can also be adapted to carry other lightweight attachments for stator inspection including the mini-camera or wedge tightness probe. A single control unit is used to provide power and control to the vehicle and camera module.

The RIV 800 is primarily designed for automated testing stator cores with EL CID with the rotor removed however, is also can be used to test machines by insertion into the air-gap with the rotor in place if the rotor retaining ring to stator gap is sufficiently large. The new RIV 800 controller has been developed in collaboration with a University of Toronto Laboratory.

El sistema de cámara Iris Power RIV proporciona un sistema flexible para inspecciones de rotores en el lugar de trabajo de generadores grandes. Está instalado en el vehículo de inspección robótica Iris Power, que puede moverse a lo largo de las ranuras del estátor. El sistema de cámara incluye una luz integral. La cámara y la luz se dirigen a un espejo de 45°, que se puede girar a distancia 360° para permitir la exploración del estátor o del rotor, así como mirar hacia delante a lo largo de la brecha de aire. La cámara también puede enfocarse de forma remota. El sistema permite una inspección visual del estátor del generador y del rotor, incluyendo la comprobación de los orificios de ventilación en busca de residuos, sin necesidad de retirar el rotor. La salida de vídeo se muestra en un monitor TFT LCD a color de 150 mm integrado en la unidad de control. Se proporciona la salida de video compuesto para alimentar un segundo monitor o registrador de vídeo.

Features

  • Reduce overall cost of maintenance by providing faster testing with only one operator
  • Magnetically self supporting on steel surface to reduce human fatigue, stress and accessibility concerns
  • Fits into the 35 mm air gap for rotor-in-place testing
  • Guidance system detects the edges of the stator teeth to follow a straight line and measures distance using an encoder wheel.
  • Curvature adjustment accommodates the tractor in stator cores of various sizes
  • AUTO mode allows the RIV to stop at a pre-set distance and then move only in the opposite direction
  • Variable speed adjustment

 

Benefits of the Camera System

  • Visually inspect stator and rotor for defects and damage with rotor in place with a low profile of 30mm
  • Focus on the stator core surface, stator air vents, or rotor surface
  • Scans image while conducting wedge tightness or ELCID test
  • Fits to the Robotic Inspection Vehicle for moving along stator slots
  • Assists positioning for Rotor-in-Place wedge tightness testing
  • Visual inspection for debris in the air-gap
  • Image can be adjusted for 360-degree angle and focus
  • Built-in dual light source

Options

  • Sonda SWA miniatura para detección de la estanqueidad de la cuña
  • Sensores planos Chattock de 20,25,35cm para pruebas EL CID
