The IPLEX RX/ IPLEX RT are lightweight industrial videoscopes that feature the unique PulsarPic image processor to produce exceptionally high-resolution and bright images. They have a large 6.5-inch screen with an anti-reflective daylight-view monitor.
The IPLEX RX and RT feature the best image quality of our videoscopes. Our unique PulsarPic™ image processor reduces noise and sharpens images, resulting in the exceptionally high resolution image.
The IPLEX RX and RT faithfully and brightly reproduce very small defects, and the sharp and clear images enable accurate and reliable inspections.
Sharp and clear images with less noise
The IPLEX RX and RT feature a new LED illumination system that is approximately twice as bright as conventional videoscopes, while dynamically adjusting light output to reduce halation when metal or reflective surfaces are inspected.
The PulsarPic™ image processor interacts intelligently with our illumination system to deliver an optimized amount of light and gain enhancement to provide images that are very clear and sharply defined.
Accurate images of both dark and light area
The IPLEX RX features our unique image processing capability, WiDER™, which brings out the darkest areas of an image without washing out the details of the brighter regions. The innovative technology provides optimum inspections of large areas or even highly reflective areas.
In addition, the IPLEX RX is equipped with sharpness and color adjustment functions to create optimal images depending on objects and applications.
The IPLEX RX and RT weigh just 2.9 kg/ 6.4 lb including the two‐hour operating Li‐ion battery. The compact and portable design allows you not only to easily ship or transport the IPLEX RX and RT to inspection sites but to smoothly carry them to difficult-to-access locations.
The versatile design of the IPLEX RX and RT offers comfortable use to almost anyone. The pivoting handle of the monitor can change into a stand during inspections, and allows you to place the videoscope wherever you want to optimize viewing distance and angles. The video output capability of the IPLEX RX and RT enables inspections in a group or from remote locations by connecting the external monitor. Furthermore, the IPLEX RX and RT can be used while being carried with a shoulder belt or connected onto a tripod.
Our Stereo Measurement technology offers defect measurements from various angles with simple operations. The newly implemented screen switching function allows easy detection of defects with large, single screen and a quick shift to measurement.
