CHELMSFORD, UK – Global Marine Systems Ltd. and JME Ltd. have collaborated to update software for the DXr1 digital x-ray camera for use in subsea cable repair. It now allows quicker x-ray returns of the universal joint plus other jointing solutions.
The new upgrade eases digital capture of a cable joint during repairs, with real-time review as x-rays are taken, without film, chemicals, or processing time.
The DXr1 is used by loading the joint into the cabinet and entering job details via the touch-screen. After the statutory warning beacons and sounder, the first image is captured and sent to the operator so x-ray assessment can start immediately. The image is also displayed on the screen.
The cabinet is then rotated and the remainder of the images, typically around 30, are collected.
The images are subsequently sent to the server for assessment before a final report is generated.
