New LED light source for borescopes

LED Borescope Light Source SPARK
I would like to tell you about interesting LED light source. This light source is specially designed for optical borescopes for growing demands in the NDT industry. 
It utilizes a newly designed LED chip which is combined with a specialized focal lens to produce 15% more light intensity then the most powerful light sources in the class. The body is composed of high grade aluminum with an anodized finish.
What I like most of all is that this light source is very bright and uses 3 standard AAA batteries, which can easily be purchased everywhere. We made a small experiment and tried to find the moment when this light source stopped working from batteries. Four hours passed, but this light source still gave a bright light beam!
I think this light source is a must-have for routine remote visual inspections.

No secret that often it is more convenient to use a laptop for inspection – you can easily record video and see the place of inspection in a large screen.

I am sure this push camera will be very interesting for specialists in pipelines, oil and gas industry, seweage and refractory systems.

Economical Articulated Videoscope - Experience in a Factory

This time I would like to tell you about another inspection tool that I tested – Rigel Articulated Videoscope. The extremely mobility of this videoscope makes it great for inspections, while a wide range of outstanding features including 300,000 pixel image resolution, a 3.5 inch LCD screen, a 2GB SD memory card, for image and video capture, Li-Ion rechargeable battery, LED lights to illuminate the inspection area, and inter-changeable waterproof probes, making it ideal for on the go inspection anywhere.
So, I was allowed to examine a special pump at a plant. I will not tell you how I got there, but it was amazing experience. The large pump had special inlets for borescope inspection. The 2 meters length was just fine for that. The articulated tip allowed inserting the camera inside through the inlet hole and then it was possible to bend the tip in 2 directions to observe inner space better. The monitor of the videoscope presented a nice and clear live image of the inspection area. The rotating function of probe was also very convenient, because it was a nice substitute for more costly 4-way articulated videoscopes. I should say that the price of this Rigel videoscope was more than attractive, I found it the best price/quality ratio in the market.  
So, I recommend this nice inspection tool for observation hard-to-rich places in various technical aggregates – pumps, turbines, engines and what’s not!

Quasar videoscope - convenient action for car inspection

This time I would like to tell you about a nice and convenient videoscope Quasar for car inspection. Though I heard that it can be used not only in car services - aviation, pipe inspection, building and what's not! Everywhere you can use this tool. 
But now - car inspection. I decided to test this videoscope for cars. When I hang it on my neck, I felt it very convenient to use, because the monitor was in the right distance from my eyes. The picture was sharp. This videoscope had articulation of tip and I easily turned the tip. I was sure not to break or cut the probe, because it was covered with steel (unlike other PVC coated models). It was easy to inspect every bit of suspension. I found it also very convenient to inspect inner parts of engine. Illuminations was quite enough for video. Small diameter allowed me to see even cylinders inside. I also checked wiring through a small split. So, after this short testing I was sure in this attractive tool. I recorded all my videos to SD card and transferred them to a laptop after test. 
Next day I decided to show this videoscope to my friend, who works in near-by car service. I am sure he will like it.
Oh, I quite forgot, please see some more details about Quasar videoscope here
