XBOB-4E provides a distance encoder interface in addition to the features of Decade Engineering's standard XBOB-4 video information overlay generator. The cabinet is optional, so system designers can embed XBOB-4E at minimum cost. This version of XBOB-4 is ideal for PC-hosted video inspection of pipelines, boreholes, and other applications where distance data must be combined with video. Please visit our Order page for small-quantity price information.
Third-party application software for pipeline inspection is currently provided by Pipelogix/Flexidata, POSM, Wincan, and others. Note that XBOB-4E products purchased from software and inspection system suppliers may have additional features and enjoy customer support services that are unavailable directly from Decade Engineering.
