General's portable hand-held Borescope system enables real-time recording in video or still photography
General Tools and Instruments announces a portable, hand-held Borescope system (Model DCS1500). Using a flexible fiber-optic cable connected to a video viewscreen and a camera, this unit enables real-time visual observation, recording and remote data logging in video or still photography of areas that are difficult to reach, dangerous to get to or otherwise inaccessible.
The system is mobile and lightweight, eliminating the need to transport bulky, multiple components. Its palm-sized control unit includes an LED light source, a Thin Film Transistor (TFT) display, a camera and a recorder. The internal SD memory allows users to save a complete video record and output it later through a USB interface.
In addition to its data-logging function and TV monitor output, the system supports multiple video formats compatible with most software, including Windows Media Player. The unit also features an extra-wide viewing angle and comes complete with multiple angled viewing tips.
The complete kit includes a 39.4-inch lens module cable, a 512Mb SD memory card, 30, 45 and 60° mirrors, a USB to five-pin mini-B cable, a video cable, a cleaning cloth, instructions, a charger and a heavy-duty carrying case. The unit is supplied with rechargeable batteries that can record for up to four hours continuously.
The Borescope system has numerous applications, including HVAC troubleshooting and maintenance, furnace and plumbing inspection, in-wall mold inspection, pest identification, home inspections, automotive repair, surveillance, military applications and all types of general inspection.
