Everything about the DCX5000 Command Center—the ergonomic layout, the backlit legends, the tactile feedback—is designed to make a ROVVER X operator even more productive and comfortable.

The new DCX5000 Command Center grants fingertip access to all ROVVER X system functions from a single interface. Twin proportional joysticks allow precision control of camera and crawler movement, while conveniently positioned thumbwheels control illumination intensity, cruise speed, camera height and reel force. Illuminated pushbuttons (a combination of fixed and assignable) present other commonly used functions. The 10” tiltable LCD touchscreen lets an operator drill down to deeper functions and parameters and a full QWERTY keyboard streamlines data entry.

“Everything about the DCX5000 Command Center—the ergonomic layout, the backlit legends, the tactile feedback—is designed to make a ROVVER X operator even more productive and comfortable,” says Richard Lindner, President of Envirosight. “And its modular design adapts to practically any studio layout.”

Indeed, the DCX5000 Command Center consists of four separate components (left hand panel, right hand panel, keyboard, monitor) that can be installed as a unitized interface, or individually to suit unique needs of the operator. All components are designed for surface mounting and wired from the bottom to eliminate clutter.

Shipment on orders will begin June, 2013.


ROVVER X is the one pipe inspection system that lets an operator do everything—control inspections, view and record digital video, log observations, generate reports, and link directly to asset-management software. All this capability is packed into a simple three-piece layout, with no CCU or other components to clutter the workspace.

Though remarkably self-contained, ROVVER X is built on an expandable digital backbone. Not only can an operator add side-scanning and laser profiling, he or she can view data from onboard sensors, automate tasks with macros, and measure defects onscreen. And future capabilities are limitless—ROVVER X’s firmware updates automatically to the latest features, and its architecture is ready for any accessory—even ones that don’t yet exist.

Advanced technology aside, ROVVER X is built for the rigors of sewer inspection. Twelve wheel options—plus camera lift, carriage and illumination accessories—mean ROVVER X transforms in seconds to inspect any size line. Its six-wheel drive with proportional steering navigates past obstacles, and overlapping wheels climb offsets better than tracks. Powerful motors and a geared drive train maximize range and pivot capability, even with carriage and 10” knobby tires installed.

Ultimately, however, reliability and productivity have made ROVVER the number one crawler brand worldwide. ROVVER X continues this tradition with unsurpassed video resolution and 50% more illumination, leaving no detail hidden. Its powerful reel monitors cable tension optically to prevent slack and minimize resistance, allowing one-man operation. And self-diagnostic capabilities, plus access to operating history, only enhance the uptime of the one crawler that already leads the industry.
