RGeo-eye Borehole Camera System
Camera employs a downward facing window with a fish-eye lens fully corrected for lens distortion before data is compressed and sent uphole. An LED light source, with controllable brightness is integral to the probe. Output is full 24bit colour H264 format video file that can be converted to MP4 that can be opened with standard video players.
Primarily used for inspection of water wells, mine shafts, cavities and joint/casing condition. Camera can descend to beyond 1000m. 360⁰ side view can be software derived for detailed inspection of walls and casing (available late 2020 with GeoCad). Works in dry or water filled boreholes and shafts.
43mm diameter probe. For larger diameter shafts (5m+) the limiting factor is the amount of light that can be generated.
-Borehole and casing integrity inspection
-Surveillance of mines, shafts, caverns and voids
-Assessment of deep concrete piles
-Pre-logging borehole examination
-Damage detection in subsurface structures
