LAteral TRAcking System
Lateral tracking takes a new direction for cross bore analysis

LATRAS is a pioneering tracking system for the automatic measuring and graphic GPS documentation of the entire pipe laterals with the lateral camera KS 60 DB.

The system’s control electronics captures the movement of the LATRAS sensor head behind the digital lateral camera, KS 60 DB. The distance, position, and depth coordinates are registered constantly in parallel with the inspection and allow the documentation of the laterals at the same time without any significant additional work for the operator using automatic data logging software.

With this new and important information about the pipe system mapped out on a GPS plane, the quality of the inspection is considerably improved. All Rausch lateral launch systems with the KS 60 DB lateral camera can be upgraded with the LATRAS sensor and software package.
