Works with the Following Assets
Assists with the Following Type of Monitoring

The Robotic Inspection Vehicle is a low-profile magnetically supported robotic vehicle that fits into the air-gap for rotor-in-place testing.  It can support the ELCID stator core fault test, the stator wedge analyzer test and the inspection camera.

Product Details


  • Auto-stop setting ensures RIV stops at pre-set distance
  • Control unit outside stator core connects via single multi-core cable for power and signals
  • Can be configured for various slot widths
  • Curvature adjustment for various core diameters
  • Low height (30mm) allows rotor-in-place testing
  • Magnetically self-supporting on steel surface
  • Automatically detects the edges of the stator teeth to follow a straight line
  • Side plates give additional guidance when wedges are recessed or when wedges and coils are removed
  • Distance measurement via encoder wheel


  • Camera System
  • Miniature SWA probe for wedge tightness detection
  • 20, 25, 35cm flat Chattock sensors for EL CID testing
