Product highlights


– Central control unit

The super bright (1000 NIT), large display enables perfect work even in strong sunlight. With a size of 12.1 inches, the display is larger than most commercially available tablets. The intuitive menu navigation enables quick familiarization and safe operation. The desk can be operated flexibly with your finger, many common protective gloves, a pen or a connectable keyboard.

– Power supply

In order to offer the highest degree of flexibility, the TINY|PC.3 can be operated independently of the mains with up to two batteries, as well as in mains operation. In order to increase the operating time significantly, there is not only the standard battery supplied with a runtime of up to 4 hours, but also the large battery with a runtime of up to 8 hours.

– compatibility

A special highlight is the possibility of connecting the TINY|PC.3 to a RICO vehicle or our mobile system, the CROSS|TOUCH. This means that the corresponding reporting software and recording devices as well as the control of the camera are also available for pushing operation.

– 1-click quick-change basket

With its lightweight construction and very low weight, the system can be easily transported to any location. The interchangeable reel can be quickly inserted and removed with a 1-click operation. This is particularly important for the separate transport of the basket and frame in confined spaces. Automatic cable detection including meter counting enables quick conversion to a wide variety of work requirements.







New highlight of the RICO sliding system TINY|PC.3 – Connection to a TV inspection system (vehicle)

The TINY|PC.3 combines the mobile system CROSS|TOUCH or a TV inspection vehicle with the advantages of a RICO push camera for inspecting smaller diameters.

The new feature of the TINY|PC.3 offers the option of using the camera of the sliding system e.g. B. Pan-Roto-Camera can also be controlled from the TV vehicle. This has many advantages for the user.

The principle works as follows:

The user of a RICO inspection vehicle (or a mobile system CROSS|TOUCH) with up to 600 meters of cable can connect this to the sliding system in seconds and without tools. This connection transfers the video signal, the camera control and the measured values ​​to the TV vehicle.

Now one of the users can walk up to the sewer to be inspected with the full cable length of up to 600 meters and carry out a sewer inspection in push mode as usual. He sees a live image from the channel on the TINY|PC.3 monitor. The user in the car can control the connected camera at the same time and monitor and process the inspection from here and use the sewer software in the TV inspection vehicle to create appropriate documentation as requested by the client.

What are the advantages of the new feature?

On the one hand, there is a considerable cost advantage in that sewer software is only required in the TV inspection vehicle. On the other hand, the direct control of the Camera from the TV inspection car and the operator’s fully equipped workstation with up to 3 screens. The measured values ​​determined (e.g. meter values ​​or laser measurements) can be transferred automatically and without errors. In addition, the data in the TV inspection vehicle can be sent immediately to the engineering office using a WiFi stick.
