Video Borescopes

Video borescopes, also known as videoscopes, provide a clear view of inspection areas inaccessible to other NDT methods. These flexible and durable instruments provide advanced inspection capabilities for bores, holes, pipes, cavities, and other challenging applications. Our industrial Video Borescopes provide outstanding image quality and versatility to meet a variety of requirements. The IPLEX™ TX II video borescope has an ultra-thin 2.2 mm diameter that can reach inside almost any space, while the IPLEX Long Scope is ideal for inspecting long-reach areas, such as boiler tubes. Their ability to image difficult-to-reach places makes video borescopes essential tools for nondestructive testing in industries like aviation and construction.

Video Borescopes FAQs

What are video borescopes used for?

A video borescope is an inspection tool with a video camera at the end of a flexible optical tube. They are typically used for inspecting bores, pipes, holes, and cavities otherwise out of reach from other inspection devices.

How does a video borescope work?

Video borescopes have a small sensor chip in the tip of their insertion tubes that enables them to capture video and still images. The sensor sends these images to an LCD screen where they are viewed by the inspector. Many modern videoscopes also have an LED or laser diode light source.

What is the difference between a video borescope and a borescope?

A borescope is a common industry term for an optical instrument used to perform remote visual inspection. While some inspectors may use the term borescope to refer to a video borescope, video borescopes provide more advanced technology than borescopes. Video borescopes are versatile, durable visual inspection tools that offer many leading-edge features, including video/still image recording.
