The iShot® PTZ-400A is a powerful Pan, Tilt, and Zoom Camera developed for the world's most challenging remote vision applications. The robust PTZ camera head assembly is manufactured out of anodized aluminum to maintain its easy maneuverability and lightweight presence, while also allowing it to go into the most critical of areas. The 10x Optical, 12x Digital camera zoom delivers a total zoom ratio of 120x, allowing the operator to reach into the most remote areas with openings as small as 4.00 inches. The PTZ-400A also features a continuous 360° pan as well as a 110° total tilt. White light illumination is provided by a 35 Watt Lamp (choice of a spot OR Flood lamp), perfect for extremely dark areas. The lighting system achieves ideal lighting no matter what inspection is being performed. The PTZ-400A is easily implemented onto pre-existing mounting mechanism and was designed with being easily retrofitted to pre-existing inspection stations.

The pan, tilt, zoom camera system includes the PTZ-400A Camera Head Assembly, a Control Box for manipulation of the mechanical motions, the lighting system, and the advanced controls of the camera module itself with a 100' Kevlar, Reinforced Polyurethane Cable.  The powerful camera module embedded inside of the PTZ-400A boasts the latest in CCD technology, including features such as Auto White Balance, Gain, Shutter and Focus.  The PTZ-400A measures 3.90 inches (99 mm) in diameter with a total operating envelope of a 4.00 inch diameter x 8.00 length cylinder. 


Common applications for the PTZ-400A include a multitude of applications such as Nuclear Fuel Bundle/Serial Number Verification, Reactor Vessel, Large Pipe Inspections, monitoring of Contaminated Rooms and Hot Cells, Steam Generator Bowl and Secondary Side Inspection, Tanks and Vessels,. Some other non-Nuclear applications include Weld Inspections, Corrosion Evaluation, Fuel tank inspection and any kind of application where human access is either dangerous or impossible.
