Advanced Underwater Drone Delivers NM200EVT-1 Laser Scanner for PWR Internal Inspection

Newton Labs Model SW1000 State of the Art Underwater Drone Platform for deployment of the NM200EVT-1 Laser Scanner to perform MRP227 and ASME Section X1 inspections. Advanced Newton developed position holding software, similar to the software used on air drones, controls thrusters for exact placement and stability to perform the most critical EVT-1 inspections and laser scan measurements. Newton’s SW1000 Underwater Drone can be pre-programed to inspect over 90% of MRP-227 and ASME Section XI required inspections and physical measurement thus removing a significant load from the drone operator.

The Newton SW1000 underwater drone has 5 high resolution cameras, 6 sets of adjustable lights and 4 laser lines in addition to the NM200EVT-1 laser scanner to allow for precise EVT-1 and other inspections. The Newton Model SW1000 is extremely easy to drive and use: requires little or no training for utility technicians. All lighting has adjustable intensity for the difficult EVT-1 inspections.

The Newton Model SW1000 contains the Newton NM200EVT-1 Laser Scanner with built-in high-resolution radiation tolerant color cameras and lighting to quickly and accurately perform VT- 3, VT-1 and EVT-1 inspections required by MRP/BWRVIP and ASME Section XI. In addition, the laser scanner creates a high-resolution 3D CAD model that performs the Physical Measurements of the Effects of Degradation required MRP-227 in a fraction of the time of currently deployed technology along with much improved accuracy; thus having permanent storage of a 3D CAD model of dimensioned degradation or defects for later review.
