Video Inspection / Pathfinder Series

Steerable Pathfinder Series Navigates the Toughest Obstacles

Aries Pathfinder and Pathfinder XL are versatile and powerful pipeline inspection systems. A Pan & Tilt camera with self-cleaning lens, a rear-facing camera and a camera lift provides clear images for accurate assessments.

The Pathfinder Model TR3310 provides upgraded operator control and speed with improved main drive components. An electric lift keeps the camera centered operating in 6-inch and larger pipe.

The Pathfinder XL operates in 8-inch and larger pipes.

Both Pathfinder models operate with the Portable Pathfinder Reel. Learn More

Pathfinder Transporter (TR3310)


Improved drive components in this upgraded system provide longer life in harsh pipe conditions. Forward weight distribution results in better traction for longer pulls and faster inspections. An adjustable electric camera lift with a 7.1-inch extension keeps the camera centered in a wide range of pipe sizes for full visibility.

With various wheel sizes, the Pathfinder sets-up quickly to match pipe contours. A standard configuration tractor operates in 6-inch to 24-inch diameter relined pipe. A Large Line Kit provides navigation in pipes up to 36-inch diameter and larger.

  • More power for greater pulling distance
  • Fast camera retrieval with rear-facing camera and free-wheel mode
  • Rugged construction ensures long service life

The Model TR3310 can be operated by the new Aries Master Controller. Remote operation is controlled via a dual joystick Xbox 360® controller. The Pathfinder can also be used with a legacy controller.
