New Python Push Camera

Meet a new push camera from Python family: Python-S. Why S in the name? This push camera has a self-leveling camera unit and a built-in 512Hz sonde. This push camera is a great device for video inspection of sewers and drain waters, main lines and laterals, ducts, wells, boilers, tanks and power plants.
The Python's self leveling camera head contains a high resolution Sharp CCD chip, 30 LED lights with adjustable brightness, a flexible spring coiled joint to navigate corners and a Sapphire lens to resist scratching. Due to the self-leveling feature the camera chip is always right side up expanding your ability to clearly see the inspection area. 
Length of insertion probe can reach 70 or 120 meters. With USB port you can always transfer files to computer.

Comparison of Triton Push Cameras

This time I would like to tell you about two pipe cameras from Triton family:  
What are their differences? What are their main features?
Both Triton camera systems give you a great experience of inspection. These systems perfectly meet all your needs for pipe inspections.
First - the differences.
Triton micro pipe camera has a very narrow 7/8'' camera with pressure resistance to 4 bar. Camera contains 4 super powerful LEDs
Triton self-levelling pipe camera has self-levelling camera that will always turn to the right side to use. Pressure resistance is higher - to 6 bar. Camera contains 20 bright LEDs.
All other features are the same. The whole system consists of two components. First, it is the durable mini inspection reel with push cable lengths to 60 meters. Unlike other systems on the market the Triton features a Kevlar braided probe. Kevlar is a highly resistant material that is widely used for making bullet proof vests.  Camera chip is protected by scratch resistant sapphire glass and housing is made of stainless steel. The Triton inspection reel also comes with a built in transmitter that operates at 512htz and is easily locatable with a standard receiver.
Second, it is the imaging hub, Triton pipe cameras have 10.4” color wide screen monitor with a recording processor. Data can be saved directly to Ipod, Ipad or USB drive. Recordings are made in a high quality H.264 format. Data can also be accompanied with voice comments through and written text.
Other features include an on-screen counter for how much of the probe has been inserted, adjustable lighting control, click touch controls and a rechargeable battery which holds a two hour charge. 
So, if you need to pass through very narrow ducts and pipes with diameter from 1'', then your choice will be Triton Micro Pipe camera. 
If the diameter of camera is not important, but you need such additional features as self-levelling camera or higher pressure resistance, then you can consider Triton Self-Levelling Pipe camera.  
Please see videos taken by both cameras.

Ultra Thin Videoscope with Highly Durable Probe

No wonder that probe of videoscope is often the most fragile part. It is subject to various influences including sharp edges of metal parts of engines. However metal braiding of PVC covered probe increases resistance against external impacts. Videoscope with such a probe can be more easily used during inspection of hard-to-reach places. The more - thin probe can be inserted through smallest entries and gives a nice image. 
Please check this video taked by 4 mm probe with articulation. More information here

Sample Video Taken by Orion II Videoscope

Videoscope ORION with a flexible insertion probe
Orion II videoscope has a light weight, extremely portable design, and meet current requirements for Remote Visual Inspection.
A full range of interchangeable probes with different diameters, lengths, and directions of view (DOV), are available, making this a highly useful and indispensable tool. Inspection probes range from 3.9 mm to 10 mm in diameter, and are all water-, oil-, diesel-, gasoline- proof (IP 57) with an integrated high resolution CMOS Video Camera chip. Four bright LED lights give brilliant illumination with a button on the monitor to control the light intensity, virtually eliminating glare when inspecting reflective or metallic surfaces. This videoscope is used in automotive inspection, in welding inspection and in many other areas. 
Please see below the sample video taken by Orion II videoscope with the thinnest 3.9 mm insertion probe.
