Olympus iPlex NX industrial videoscope
The iPlex NX industrial videoscope, from Olympus, can help locate flaws that were previously undetectable, as well as streamline inspections in difficult-to-reach areas. The scope combines a high-pixel CCD chip, an ultrabright laser diode light system delivered through the tip of the probe and Olympus’ PulsarPic processor to automatically adjust light output, delivering clear images in changeable inspection conditions.
The product can measure areas up to four times larger than conventional scopes, according to the company. It also offers a multispot-ranging function that enables measurement of the distance from the scope tip to multiple points on the inspection surface. This provides real-time surface shape information with no pause or break in the inspection.
The camera can be controlled remotely by an operator while it is inserted in the cavity to be inspected. Olympus’ TrueFeel electric articulation has been enhanced with reduced mechanical lag and greater sensitivity, giving the product ultraresponsive articulation and an increased range of motion in four directions.
The user has a choice between the touch screen or the ergonomically designed manual controls to suit the environment and inspection application. The touch screen is manoeuvrable for optimised ergonomics and viewing comfort, allowing for more than a dozen commonly used functions to be changed with a single touch.
The product is suitable for locations with limited operator access, including boilers, aeroplane fuselages and engines, and wind turbine gear boxes. The compact and robust construction has achieved an IP55 rating and complies with stringent US military standards for dust and rain resistance, as well as drop testing.
