A Closer Look: Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

UPS Battery BackupThe fully loaded CCTV inspection van includes all the tools an inspector needs to autonomously travel to a site, make a thorough inspection of a wastewater pipeline, and return to home base with a clear, accurate video filled with helpful observations. Such tools include:

  • A computer (specifically a laptop or preferably a rackmount because they’re “sized” for the job, and more rugged. Read our article on rackmounts here.)
  • Robot crawler with camera and CCTV reel attached to a Sensoray
  • POSM Software to manage it all
  • A portable power generator so your equipment has electricity for a full day’s work*

*A note on two alternatives to portable power generators: Solar/battery generators are becoming popular. A UPS is not necessary with this power generator. If your truck uses an inverter for the power generator, we would still recommend that you plug the inverter into a UPS.

A Closer Look: Treating Wastewater

Let's take a closer look at treating wastewater. Like the picture on our TV or our microwave oven, we grasp how these things help us, even if we don’t quite understand the technology. Our clean, drinkable tap water is much the same way. We rinse it, we flush it, we wash with it. Then techno-magic happens and it returns to the community water supply as clean water.

Most of us are cognizant of the fact that our toilets, faucets, washing machines and tubs all drain away into the same underground wastewater pipe system generically referred to as the sewer, and that the sewage is pumped to a local wastewater treatment plant. We know this because we pay a bill for this service. On the rare occasions we give it any further thought, we understand that it’s necessary because that water has passed through toilets, soapy bodies, and laundry. Even rainwater, which appears to be clean (but isn’t) is directed toward the sewer to begin the same purification process.

...water has passed through toilets, soapy bodies, and laundry.

So what exactly happens? We thought we’d take this space to “break down” the process (ha, ha, ha). Somewhere in there we’ll mention POSM Software’s role, because we’re not doing this JUST to educate you. (How boring would THAT be?)

PipeCheck Founder Credits POSM's "Beyond Out-of-the Box" Service

Brian Gibson at Rausch Inspection VanBrian Gipson started PipeCheck, LLC in Bowling Green, KY, in 2009 with Rausch inspection equipment and POSM Software. He’s never thought twice about that decision. He chose Rausch for the superior performance and laser profiling capabilities vital to his work, and POSM because “Bob [Katter, founder of POSM] had done the important research with Rausch, and he was the only one who offered a fully integrated package that worked seamlessly with it.”
