How to choose optical tip adapters for the industrial videoscopes

Back to Resources

Optical tip adapter Olympus offers a wide range of interchangeable optical adapters for the industrial videoscopes and fiberscopes, providing optimum focuses and directions for various applications and inspected objects.

The following chart indicates the detailed features of individual optical tip adapters for the IPLEX videoscopes. Basically, forward-viewing adapters are suitable for general inspections where the videoscope distal end has to be articulated and pushed to reach to the observation point in the inspection object. Thus, forward-viewing optical adapters are the first choice for condition monitoring of pipe surface, large area and complicated machine inside. Side-viewing adapters are very effective to observe the detailed condition of welded pipes and turbine blades where good view cannot be achieved with forward-viewing adapters.
