A high-end industrial videoscope system combining portability with advanced functionality, and ease of use with durability. From high image quality inspection to retrieval operation, the versatility achieves various benefits beyond your experience.
The IPLEX FX introduces new levels of durability to industrial videoscopes with its shock-resistant case design and wear-resistant scope exterior. Adding "strength-of-construction" to a frequently used, job-essential tool produces one tough, reliable and long-lasting piece of industrial inspection equipment.
The main component of the IPLEX FX base unit chassis is Magnesium - renowned for its strength and light weight. A typical material used for industrial environment equipment, Magnesium was chosen to provide the impact resistance and solid base that withstands the knocks and bumps that commonly occur to industrial videoscopes. In addition to a crush-resistant chassis each corner is protected by rubber bumpers, further softening a drop and maximising product reliability while reducing potential for damage. The IPLEX FX survived the repetitive 4 feet drop test for compliance to MIL-STD 810G.*
*MIL-STD (The United States Defense Standard) is used to help achieve standardization objectives by the U.S. Department of Defense.
The most critical component of any remote visual inspection tool is the insertion tube. It performs the basic requirement of accessing the inspection area and frequently navigating through narrow paths with abrasive and rough surfaces.
Tough TaperFlex coil
The Olympus Tough TaperFlex coil features graduated flexibility for easy scope manoeuvrability and navigation.
Inside resin tube
Articulation wires and electronics only. With LED illumination at the scope tip, fiber optic bundles are not necessary.
High-density braided exterior
High density outer braid fulfills durability and 3x greater fray resistance without compromising the flexibility and ability to navigate through the most difficult inspections.
Pliable distal end
To navigate through tight bends or corners, minimum bend radius and shorter rigid tip sections are an essential design criteria for our scope tip, optics and tip adapters.
The simplicity and portability of Olympus videoscopes has seen their usage extend to areas not considered 'traditional' application areas. Go to these harsher environments, but take a system designed for the job… IPLEX FX.
|Power is provided to the FX by an internally mounted, Lithium-Ion battery which provides over two hours runtime. The compact size of the FX makes portable operation a reality - either body-wear the light weight system or place it on a surface and allow the non-slip, rubber corners to hold it in place while you carry out your inspections.|
|The FX scope units are resistant to insertion in higher temperature environments - now 100°C (210°F) meaning that inspections can take place sooner as you won't need to wait as long for the area to cool. Additionally the 6.0mm and 4.0mm diameter scope units both feature a temperature sensor to provide a two-stage visual warning to prevent reaching an over-temperature situation.|
To prevent the ingress of debris, all mechanical joints are hermetically sealed and input/output connectors are covered.
IPLEX FX complies with internationally recognised Military Standards (MILSTD 810F/G*). This compliance assures a greater level of environmental performance than regular industry standards and provides increased reliability against dust and fluid. The inventive design of the FX has removed the need for a cooling fan, and therefore no air intake is required. This results in even greater environmental resistance.
IPLEX FX is MIL-STD 810F/G and MIL-STD 461F tested.
MIL-STD 810F Tests:- Vibration Test
- Blowing Rain Test
- Humidity Test
- Salt Fog Test
- Icing/Freezing Rain Test
- Explosive Atmosphere Test
MIL-STD 810G Tests:- Drop Test at 4 feet
- Sand and Dust Test
MIL-STD 461F Test:- EMI Test

In support of this enhanced environmental resistance, the new daylight-Viewing high resolution LCD monitor provides clear observation of the inspection result when working outdoors, in strong sunlight.
The new, ultra-thin videoscope with a diameter of 4.0mm * is now available, greatly enhancing insertability due to its narrow tip. Navigating tight paths such as the insides of engines has never been easier.
*IPLEX scope diameters are specified as the minimum ring gauge diameter that the scope can pass through.
As a leader in the photographic camera market, Olympus understands what is needed to deliver accurate and colour-rich images and this experience continues to be transferred to Industrial inspection equipment.
|Clear observation in strong sunlight is made possible with the new 6.5" daylight-viewing LCD monitor - the minimum recommended screen size for accurate and reliable observation of fine detail. Color reproduction and contrast are maintained, ensuring the inspection decision is not compromised when working outdoors.|
|Image comparison under strong illumination|
To meet the requirement for high quality, true image reproduction and colour, the IPLEX FX features an optimised optical system and WiDER™ Wide Dynamic Range* image processing.
This Olympus-unique technology allows bright, contrastbalanced images to be produced across the entire depth of field..
*The WiDER TM image processing algorithm greatly expands the dynamic range to bring out details in shadows and highlights and allow much more accurate inspection
Now the light source is in the SmartTip™ optical adaptor with LED's providing illumination, meaning lamp changes are no longer required.
This revolutionary new design contributes to reduction in overall system size and power consumption, while maintaining the ability to change direction of view and field of view.
Additionally, Hi-Beam mode boosts illumination up to 1.5x for expanded inspection capability.
The IPLEX FX can perform almost any kind of inspection thanks to a wide range of interchangeable scopes, including models up to 18 m long and one with a working channel. More than just another inspection tool, the IPLEX FX is a reliable, feature-rich system capable of precise, real-time measurement and foreign object retrieval.
The IPLEX FX uses Stereo Measurement technology for accurate, three-dimensional defect measurement at any target angle. With the addition of Olympus' unique Multi and Offset Measurement modes, the IPLEX FX offers a more intuitive measurement environment with eight different modes for accurate evaluation of most inspection targets
IPLEX FX Stereo Measurement Modes
- Offset (New)
Multi Measurement mode is a quick two-point defect identification technique that simultaneously calculates point-to-line, area and distance results.
Our unique IPLEX Spot-Ranging™ feature provides the industry's only live, real-time tip-to-target distance measurement. As a rule, videoscope measurement accuracy is dependent on the scope's distance from the measurement target. With the IPLEX FX, the user can easily determine whether the scope tip is close enough to calculate the most accurate and confident measurement on the first try.
The IPLEX FX offers a range of interchangeable scopes, allowing you to choose the right one to fit the job. This means a single IPLEX FX can be configured for a variety of inspections. Scopes are available in diameters of 4.0 mm and 6.0 mm and in various lengths ranging from 2 m to 18 m.
A 7.5 m scope with a smooth outer coating is also offered. This scope is ideally suited to nuclear and pharmaceutical plant inspections where ease of cleaning and decontamination are priorities.
Adding to the array of versatile IPLEX FX benefits is a new 6.2 mm diameter scope featuring an internal working channel.
Six retrieval tools allow you to remove foreign objects from inside inspection areas - ideal for helping avoid costly overhauls - and perform hook and drag inspections in engines.
Both forward and side view Stereo Measurement tip adaptors are also available with the working channel scope, providing a complete inspection solution.
These days, inspections don't end when you've packed up your borescope. It's just the beginning. The IPLEX FX is equipped with an array of recording options and external interface solutions for a seamless transition to post-inspection analysis, archiving and measurements.
Information frequently needs to be added to a videoscope image to aid post-inspection diagnosis and report creation. IPLEX FX makes this process an integral part of the inspection, with the easy-to-use ImageNotepadTM tool. A title and multiple text fields are available for entering key words and phrases to enable extended descriptions of the inspected object to be documented.
Additionally, text input is simplified by displaying a list of predicted words each time a letter is entered. Connecting a USB keyboard to the IPLEX FX is also possible for further simplicity and speed of text entry.
This valuable data is then immediately available as part of the image when transferred to a PC.
Archiving, sharing and reporting inspection results are made simple with the IPLEX FX. The IPLEX FX features still image and movie recording to internal memory, removable compact flash card or USB flash drive. Due to the rigours of the industrial inspection workplace, the IPLEX FX is designed to store images on solid-state media devices, ensuring that valuable data is not lost due to the instability of recording devices with movable parts. All recording formats are compatible with standard Windows operating systems and can be easily used in many report templates or attached to emails for instant sharing of inspection results. For other recording formats, the IPLEX FX is also compatible with many external recording devices through standard s-video and composite video outputs.
