Title
(EN) WINCHING APPARATUS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE TREUILLAGE
Abstract
(EN)
Winching apparatus comprises a probe (1) and a data storage and processing unit (3) that are interconnected by an elongate fibre-optic cable (2) that transmits data between the probe (1) and unit (3). The cable (2) is wound on a non-rotary spool (4) around and is unwound by a rotary arm (6) that orbits the spool (4). The arm may also move laterally relative to the spool. The invention enables direct connection of the probe to the data storage and processing unit without the need for slip-rings or the like and so allows the use of a fibre-optic cable. It may also be used to transport fluid along a pipeline.
(FR)
Dispositif de treuillage comprenant une sonde (1) et une unité (3) de mémorisation et de traitement de données reliées l'une à l'autre par un câble (2) à fibres optiques allongé transmettant des données entre la sonde (1) et l'unité (3). Ce câble (2) est enroulé sur une bobine (4) non rotative et est déroulé par un bras (6) rotatif mettant la bobine (4) sur orbite. Ce bras (6) peut également se déplacer latéralement par rapport à la bobine (4). L'invention permet de relier directement la sonde à l'unité de mémorisation et de traitement de données sans avoir recours à des bagues collectrices et, de ce fait, d'utiliser un câble à fibres optiques. On peut également mettre ce dispositif en application afin de transporter un liquide le long d'une canalisation.
