Onboard Camera System

Onboard Camera System

A light-weight system for onboard visual assistance in hot cells.

Overview

The Onboard Camera System responds to requests from operators to improve their working conditions and is manufactured under licence from CEA*. The camera is directly fixed onto the tongs. It is a small cylindrical camera (approximately 500g) and is available in black and white (9V) or in color (6V).

 

Gains and benefits:

  • Precision and Proximity : the zoom system and the position of the camera close to the products improve work accuracy
  • Increase in productivity and quality : the remote screen improves operator working conditions
  • Security : supervision is enabled by the use of recording software
  • Mobility and Accessibility : inside the cell, the camera can view any part that a manipulator can reach. Small and light, it does not hamper the manipulator arm
  • Economic and sustainable : lower manufacturing price in comparison with shielded cameras. A shielded box for safe storage inside the cell extends the life of the camera
  • Adaptable in options and settings : zoom, light-weight, shielded storage box, cell stand, parking fixture for tongs

Accessories

The onboard camera is, usually, clipped onto the cylindrical joint between the booting and the tongs. It can also be mounted on a specifically designed stand inside the hot cell.

The power is supplied throught a cabling system via the electrical supply installation of the hot cell, and potentially via the remote manipulator cabling system.
