Cable Reels - Making your job easier.
Often overlooked, the cable reel is one of the most important pieces of the inspection system. IBAK’s line of cable reels are designed specifically to work with IBAK equipment and to withstand the harsh environments that you may encounter. All mainline cable is Kevlar reinforced and coated for protection. Our standard mainline cables are rated at over 2000 lbs. (900kg) pull strength. Special cable reel features like synchronized operation, automatic level winds, and remote controls make your job easier. Our fiber-optic drums use special cable that is stronger and lighter than traditional coax cable.
HSP Pushrod Reel
The HSP Pushrod reels are designed to withstand the rigors of the environment. The camera cable is covered with a replaceable PVC sheath and strengthened with a fiberglass rod. The protective sheath absorbs damage and keeps the transmission cable safe. The HSP is available in 130 and 200 foot lengths.
KW 305 / KW 310(FO) Synchronized Cable Reel
The KW305 is our most popular reel for use in mainline and lateral launch inspections. Features include: adjustable boom and optional work light, integrated power winch for lowering and retrieving equipment, automatic level-wind, fully synchronized cable management, and a remote control pendant for tractor and lateral launch functions. Capacity is up to 1000 feet (300m) of high-strength cable, low weight fiber-optic cable for use with PANORAMO®.
KW 505 Sychronized Cable Reel w/ Fiber Optic Capability
The KW505 has all the same great features of the KW 305 and accepts up to 2000 feet (600m) of high-strength fiber-optic cable or standard high-strength cable. The KW505 allows longer distance inspections and has the capability of transmitting the data from PANORAMO® 360º Pipeline Scanners.
KW 206 / KW306
The KW206 and KW306 have been specifically designed for the new MainLite system. Both have the capability of being used in portable applications or mounted in a vehicle. The only difference you'll see with these two systems is the KW206 has 656 feet of cable, while the KW306 has 1000 feet of cable. Both are controlled by the latest generation IBAK BP100 control console.
The KW305, KW310 and KW505 cable reels feature synchronized cable retraction and payout. This reduces wear on the cable, increases production, and greatly reduces the chance that you will back over your cable during retrieval.
KW 05, KW310 and KW505 cable reels include a built-in lowering winch for tractor and camera systems. This powerful winch makes inserting or removing the equipment from the pipeline easier and safer. It reduces the chance that equipment will be dropped, reducing the strain on your back and your wallet.

Each mainline cable reel offers an accessory pendant controller which enables the operator at the back of the vehcile to retract the tractor and remove it from the pipeline. The KW305 and KW505 pendant controllers also support lateral launch systems and include controls for the lowering winch.
What is the difference between "power assist" and "automatic" cable retrieval?
The KT180 Portable Reel is designed to be light and portable. The smaller retraction motor in the reel will pull back the camera cable, but will require assistance when a large amount of cable ha been pulled out. The KW180 utilizes a larger drum motor and is designed to be mounted in a truck. It can pull back the entire cable without assistance.
