About: Features

Component ID

Four highly magnetic wheels propel the SKOOT crawler along ferrous surfaces. Attach a multitude of weld and corrosion scanning accessories to the crawler which features cable management and integrated encoder.

A flexible strap securely holds any pre-amp, splitters or scan accessories to the SKOOT crawler.

Slight steering adjustments and crawler manipulation are achieved using the manipulation handle.

Configurable for North American or European electrical standards, the power controller is a sophisticated operating platform and connection point for instrumentation and handheld controllers.

Precision forward and reverse drive control, programmable y-axis control and system diagnostics are all accessed using handheld controller’s touchscreen and joysticks.
