General Tools and Instruments' Seeker video inspection systems service a variety of applications in the HVAC/R industry
Designed for a variety of applications in the HVAC/R industry — such as detecting leaks, inspecting corrosion and deposit buildup, and reading hidden parts and serial numbers — General Tools and Instruments’ line of video inspection systems offers technicians and contractors a cost-effective way to visually inspect inaccessible or hazardous areas. Advanced units allow the user to record and transfer still images and video.
Seeker video inspection systems are designed to see into hard-to-reach areas. All three models come equipped with a high-strength, “obedient,” 1-meter (39.4-inch) camera-tipped probe with built-in, adjustable LED lighting; a mirror, magnet and pick-up hook that can mount on the end of the probe; batteries; a detailed instruction manual and an impact-resistant carrying case. Probes start from 9.5 millimeters in diameter and are water, oil and dust-proof.
The Seeker 200 video inspection system features a 2.4-inch (70-millimeter) color LCD monitor for real-time viewing, with a slim, 12-millimeter (0.47-inch) flexible camera-tipped probe that retains its configured shape for inspecting hard-to-reach areas such as heat exchanger tubing. The camera features a 60° field of view and a depth of field ranging from 1.0 to 11.8 inches (25 to 300 millimeters). Optional one-, two- or three-meter probe extensions can be added to extend the probe length up to five meters (16.4 feet).
The Seeker 300 Video Inspection System has all the features of the Seeker 200 System in addition to a larger, 3.5-inch (89-millimeter) color LCD monitor.
The Seeker 400 wireless, data-logging video inspection systems includes two models: the DCS400 and the DCS495. Both models feature the same specifications. The difference is in the type of probe included. Each system is a fully featured video scope that includes a detachable, 3.5-inch (89-millimeter) color LCD monitor designed for remote viewing as far as 32.8 feet (10 meters) away. The monitor includes a magnetic base for easy mounting on a metallic surface.
The Seeker 400 series allows the user to record either still images (jpeg) or up to three hours of video (avi) in either NTSC or PAL format. Images and video are stored on the included 1GB micro SD card and can be outputted to a remote monitor or computer via the included video and USB cables. A choice of 10 menu languages is provided. The DCS400 features a 17-millimeter (0.67-inch) flexible, camera-tipped probe with built-in, adjustable, high-intensity, LED lighting. Probe extensions 2.9 feet (.9 meters) long are optionally available to extend the unit’s reach up to 18 feet (5.5 meters).
