Does your operation involve rail or truck tankers?

Zistos Corporation has been designing remote video inspection systems to safely and efficiently inspect the interior of vats, hoppers and tanks for industry since 2001. We are proud to announce the introduction of our NEW Tanker Inspection Camera System, (Part #: IAD-TIPZ-A6). This system is specifically designed to allow for a safe and thorough inspection of the interior of a rail or truck tanker. Just as important, the system allows the user to record and document the conditions. You can now prove that a proper cleaning was completed and the interior area was clean and devoid of any foreign objects or cross contaminants!

Inspecting a tank car has traditionally presented challenges. It is difficult to thoroughly inspect the interior of a car from outside; and as a confined space, a tank car can be inherently hazardous for inspectors to enter. A Video Inspection System from Zistos meets these challenges by offering safe, visual inspection of all areas of the interior of a tank car without a confined space entry.

The Zistos system consists of a specially designed self-illuminating zoom camera mounted to a pole. The pole telescopes down into the tank area and can be manipulated in any direction to allow for a thorough visual inspection of the tanker interior. Images are viewed and can be recorded on a battery-powered LCD display. Video recordings and still images can be recorded onto an internal memory card or transmitted via WiFi to a Smartphone, tablet or computer on a network. The system is ruggedly designed and easy to operate.

Structural issues, corrosion, mold, foreign objects, residue from wash operations, cross contaminants from previous loads and evidence of vermin can be revealed with our system. It allows an inspector to view all areas of the inside of a tank car without being exposed to the many risks associated with a confined space entry. Plus, the DVR option allows digital records to be kept that document the time, date, and results of inspections. These records can be easily stored and archived offering evidence that the tanker was as it should be following a cleaning process!

All Zistos systems are weatherproof, battery-powered, portable, durable, lightweight, compact, and made in the USA.

Camera Enhancement: 10x Zoom Camera

Zistos Corp. has long been a manufacturer of portable video systems that are used to inspect or surveil areas that are inaccessible or dangerous to enter. We are always working on our products to increase their capability and value.

Our newest enhancement involves one of our more popular products used in remote video inspection applications – our 10x Zoom Camera module. Our Zoom Camera head is one of the more unique products that we offer. It is a sealed, submersible, self-illuminating camera head. It attaches to any of our flex end or articulating poles that range in length from two feet to forty feet. Our Zoom Camera offers a true 10x optical zoom capability and it can be attached to any of our poles for remote inspection tasks. The optical zoom function is accomplished with an internal lens train that magnifies objects within the field of view like any zoom function would. This is to be differentiated from a digital zoom function that many cameras offer, these increase the size of the image by doubling the pixel size – thus degrading the image quality. Our camera gives you a larger image and preserves the detail.

We are typically looking into areas that are dark and we rely on the illuminators on the camera head to properly illuminate an area. Our newly enhanced Zoom Camera head has been optimized to produce 4 times the light intensity than our previous design. This improvement allows the operator to see more detail at further distances in a dark environment AND it is fully compatible with our line of rugged battery powered LCD displays and video recorders. This is a great inspection tool to insert into tanks, vaults, hoppers, or any dark confined space that is dangerous to enter or inaccessible. It allows the operator to see small details, in a dangerous and dark environment, without the need to enter the space.

We would welcome the opportunity to show you how our new enhanced zoom camera can be used to increase the safety and effectiveness of your inspection operation. Please go to our website for more information, or contact us with any questions, or to request a no obligation on site demo of our telescoping pole camera system with our new Zoom Camera that has 4 times the illumination of our previous models.

NEW! Pole Support Bracket Accessory


Zistos Corporation has long designed remote inspection pole camera systems for law enforcement, military, rescue and industrial applications. All of our systems are designed to: – as we say – “put your eyes where they may not be safe to go.” The system is very simple – it features a self-illuminating zoom or thermal camera, mounted on a pole that allows the operator to articulate, or pan the camera and the video can be viewed on a body worn or tripod mounted display.

Our industrial applications increase the safety and effectiveness of repair maintenance operations because they allow an initial visual assessment of environment, equipment and conditions in an underground vault without the need to enter a confined space.

Some of our industrial customers in the power utility and water markets asked us to improve on the design by coming up with a more ergonomically friendly system.

We were tasked with designing a mechanism that would allow the pole camera to be inserted into a vault and NOT require the operator to hold the pole for an extended period in one position, thus avoiding operator fatigue.

We came up with a system that addresses all of these requirements.  The system can be adapted to our existing pole by attaching a “ball” that clam shells around the pole.

The ball and socket design allows the pole to pivot – similar to a joystick – about the opening in two dimensions. The pole can also be rotated 360 degrees in the socket and the camera head can be articulated independently about 180 degrees of pan.  The end result yields a system that allows the operator to inspect any location in the vault without the need to hold and bear the weight of the pole over a long period.  The socket and bar can be positioned flat on the ground or clamped onto a standard OSHA fall protection barrier.

This new enhancement makes it even easier for the end user to perform a visual assessment, or troubleshoot equipment inside of an underground vault without the need to enter the confined space.

The NEW Rail/Truck Tanker Inspection System

For years Industrial Inspection Systems from Zistos have helped increase worker safety and reduce inspection costs by keeping workers out of confined and difficult to reach spaces. With the addition of our new Rail/Truck Tanker Inspection System, inspectors can now perform a safe, visual inspection of the interior of a tanker from outside the tank. The worker can now check for hygienic conditions, foreign objects, cracks, and corrosion without the need to enter the tank and perform a confined space entry.

The system (IAD-TIPZ-6) has a uniquely configured, telescoping pole that can pan 180 degrees in both directions and attaches to a tanker hatch, allowing you to view all areas of the car interior. Also included in the system is a self-illuminating, 10X optical zoom camera and a body-worn, 5.6” LCD display with DVR capability.

All Zistos systems are weatherproof, durable, lightweight, compact, battery-operated, portable, and made in the USA. Thousands of Zistos systems are relied upon around the world, including systems with many U.S. and foreign military/government agencies.

The bottom line is that a Zistos portable video inspection system not only increases safety by keeping workers out of potentially hazardous environments, but also can significantly reduce confined space inspection costs by increasing efficiency, requiring less equipment, and shorter on-scene time.
