Service and innovation first – in Germany and worldwide

For more than 30 years Rausch TV has been developing and producing high quality CCTV inspection systems for visual pipe inspection and leak detection. The same high quality standards have also been applied in all service areas at Rausch.

Development, production, administration and one of many service centers are based at the company’s headquarter in Weissensberg at Lake Constance in Germany. Additionally Rausch offers an extensive and reliable service center network worldwide. In Germany customers find knowledgeable staff and professional support in the company’s own service centers in Duesseldorf, Winsen and Hoerdt near Strasbourg as well as at partner sites in Dresden, Luenen, Wiesentheid, Ingolstadt and Berlin. Internationally Rausch is represented in many European countries either with its own subsidiaries or through partners. Rausch Electronics USA offers a wide spread dealer network throughout North America.

Stefan Rausch commented: “Our high service levels combined with products of best quality and reliability are based on our vertical integration of 90% and secure our position among the market leaders.”

New Show Highlights – a result of continuous development

TVML Logo Rausch RZhe development of the Rausch RCA line already started in the 1990ies and continuously since then has set new trends in the market.

The RCA 4.0 was initially introduced at IFAT 2016 in Munich, Germany. As the first system worldwide it enables transmission in Full HD with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixel using copper cables and no optical fibers. This has become possible because of the specially developed and patented VML technology. This technology simplifies the service requirements and reduces the running costs.

The system control is connected to an industrial PC with 15” touch screen and multifunctional joysticks which control cameras, crawler and the satellite system. A second PC documents the inspection.

To measure deformations and defects starting from 150 mm the tried and tested Rausch camera KS 135 is now available in Full HD. For the range of up to 2500 mm the camera can be used on a floating platform or in combination with the crawler C 135 and a crawler extension.


 Worldwide novelty in camera technology

170222 RauschTV 016 Bearbeitet onlineFor the first time Rausch presents a satellite camera in Full HD technology. The camera KS 60 HD, suitable for diameters from 100 mm to 600 mm can either be launched with the modular M-Series by means of a push rod cable or in connection with a high pressure jetting system.

The RCA 4.0 is available in Full HD or can be purchased as a “Full HD prepared” system for later adaptation.

If customers are not able to handle complex Full HD data as yet it is possible to record data as MPEG2 with a resolution of 720 x 576 pixel.

The use of the RCA 4.0 can be extended to leak detection of single joints, pipe sections, branches and laterals.

Lateral tracking takes a new direction

Rausch’s new tracking system LATRAS (LAteral TRAcking System) was designed for automatic measuring and graphic documentation of the entire pipe laterals. The LATRAS sensors are positioned behind the camera KS 60 DB.

The control electronics capture the direction of motion of the LATRAS sensor head. These coordinates are registered constantly parallel to the inspection and allow to document the laterals at the same time without any significant additional work for the operator. With this

new and important information about the pipe system the quality of the inspection is being increased considerably.

Hardware and software seamlessly linked

Rausch systems can be completed with the PipeCommander software and the PicoMaps mapping mo

dule. All relevant master data and inspection results are compiled in PipeCommander and can be edited easily from there at any later point. All projects are administered through a well structured menu and can be exported and printed at any time. Inspection data and results are available as videos, photos, protocols and statistics. PipeCommander can be used as software in vehicles for capturing data or as an office version for administration and processing data.

As a powerful additional module of PipeCommander, PicoMaps gathers all available geo-coordinates automatically from the database. Based on this data PicoMaps visualizes laterals in best 3D quality or automatically with LATRAS.

Lightweights made by Rausch

Rausch offers mobile solutions and built-in-systems for vehicles. This is based on a lightweight honeycomb technology. Even as complete vehicle inspection systems including the trendsetting modular M-Series and power supply through lithium-ion batteries the total weight does not exceed 3,100 kg.

Especially suitable for the installation in smaller vehicles is the modular System MOBILE pro. It features an integrated 12” LCD-Monitor, a digital MPEG 4 recorder with single image storage and an interface for PC connection.

The crawlers C 100 together with the camera KS 60 DB and C 135 with KS 135 cover an inspection range from 100 mm to 2500 mm and are controlled by two multifunctional joysticks.

With this modular and cost effective compact solution access to underground garages and tight side streets is easy. Additionally the MOBILE pro can be integrated in jetting and other vehicles.

Small giants

For the investigation of laterals the Rausch pull and push camera systems are the ideal solution. The smallest axial view cameras have a diameter of 13 mm. From 100 mm diameters onwards pan and tilt cameras are used. These cameras always offer a correctly orientated picture and can be located precisely through integrated trackers.

Cables of up to 80 m length are available.

The camera KS 60 DB meets the highest standards with regard to the comprehensive detection of even smallest defects. Thanks to the integrated laser diodes this digital pan and tilt camera is additionally capable of precise identification of diameters and defect measurements. If documentation is required the DELTA control unit can be purchased with an integrated MPEG recorder or PC.
