The palm-sized IPLEX Ultralite industrial videoscope, weighing just 700 g, delivers high quality images. Its compact, durable body enables inspections in tough and confined areas. A rugged insertion tube offers quick and accurate articulation.
With its durable design and improved performance that allows it to be used in diverse environments, the IPLEX UltraLite is the industry's choice in handheld remote visual inspections.
Surprisingly compact and lightweight
The IPLEX UltraLite weighs only 700 g (1.5 lb) with its lithium-ion battery. This easy-to-use videoscope is so small and light that it is the perfect companion for the inspector who works in areas with limited access or in cramped spaces or has to navigate narrow stair cases and steep ladders.
Palm-sized ergonomic design
The ergonomic IPLEX UltraLite fits snugly into the palm of your hand, and provides speedy, fatigue-free operation even during prolonged inspections.
The IPLEX UltraLite offers intuitive manipulations for efficient, accurate inspections.
Icon-based menus for instant recognition and intuitive operations
Quick-access hot buttons
Quick, precise scope articulation
With its innovative, compact design, the IPLEX UltraLite offers uncompromising, industry-leading durability and image quality.
Durable chassis withstands drops and falls
The IPLEX UltraLite's durability has been thoroughly proven. It passes our 1.2 m (3.9 ft) drop test, and withstands inspection-site drops and falls. The LCD monitor is equipped with the prominently strong Gorilla Glass, passing a steel-ball drop test compliant with the international standard, IEC-61010.
Rugged design for reliable operation in harsh environments
Ideal for outdoor inspections, the IPLEX UltraLite faithfully produces brilliant images, even in sunlight.
Insertion tube resists crushing and abrasion
The IPLEX UltraLite's insertion tube is both crush and abrasion-resistant. It is also designed with unique Olympus Tapered Flex™ technology for outstanding scope maneuverability. With its durability and graduated flexibility, the IPLEX UltraLite insertion tube enables you to inspect objects inside winding and rough paths.
- A bright LED illumination at the scope tip eliminates the need for fiber optic bundles.
- A high-density outer braid provides maximum wear resistance and durability.
- The Tapered Flex™ tube features gradient flexibility for easy scope maneuverability and navigation.
- A crush-resistant steel coil layer makes the insertion tube more durable.
Sharp live-image and clear movies for reliable observation and analysis
When it comes to remote visual inspections, image quality is one of the highest priorities. The IPLEX UltraLite is equipped with our unique Olympus image processor, and produces sharp and clear images. Along with its superb color-reproducing capability, the IPLEX UltraLite enables you to accurately detect even small defects.
Observed images can be stored in a connected SD or SDHC card as high-quality JPEG still images and MPEG-4 movies.
The IPLEX UltraLite now offers several new hardware and software features to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of your inspections and analysis.
Extra-bright illumination with versatile optical adapters
InHelpTM Inspection Assist Software
Proven Stereo Measurement*
Our advanced Stereo Measurement technology offers outstanding reliability and accuracy for your inspections. By capturing image information through two parallax lenses, the IPLEX UltraLite permits accurate measurement of almost any object from any angle.
Additionally, our unique Spot-Ranging™ feature on the IPLEX UltraLite, the industry's only realtime tip-to-target distance measurement tool, navigates the scope tip to the optimum distance from a target for the most precise measurement on the first try.
