PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide an electric wire inspection device capable of picking up the 360°-image of an electric wire with cameras and inspecting electric wires for anomalies with ease.
SOLUTION: The electric wire inspection device 1 is constituted by installing rollers 3 that can roll on a feeder L on a frame body 2 secured at the upper end of an insulated operating rod P, and installing CCD cameras 4 through a rocking mechanism 5. The rocking mechanism 5 is constituted by erecting a plurality of guide pins 7 from a guide plate 6, secured on the frame body 2c, in an arc shape with the feeder L positioned in the center. A rocking plate 8 provided with an long arc-shaped hole 8a through which the guide pins 7 are passed is supported on the guide pins 7. The rocking plate 8 is provided with an arc-shaped engaging tooth string 8b concentric with the long hole 8a. A gear 9 driven by a motor 10, supported on the frame body 2, is engaged with the engaging tooth string 8b. The rocking plate 8 is provided with an arm bar 12 with a pair of the CCD cameras 4, 4 fixed at both its ends which CCD cameras pick up the image of the feeder L from both sides. While the rocking plate 8 is reciprocated through a predetermined rotational angle by the gear 9, the image of the outer circumferential surface of the feeder L is picked up with the CCD cameras 4, 4.
