FAQ of Industrial Videoscope

What is flexible videoscope?

Flexible Videoscope is an advanced type of borescope that houses a very small image sensor embedded into the tip of the scope. The video image isrelayed from the distal tip and focusable lens assembly back to the display viainternal wiring. This is unlike a traditional rigid borescope or fiberscope.Rigid borescopes use hard optical relay components to transfer the image fromthe tip to an eyepiece and flexible fiberscopes use coherent image fiber opticsto relay the image to one's eye through an eyepiece. The image quality of avideoscope is superior to that of a fiberscope and can be compared to that ofan intermediate camcorder.JEET Videoscope adopts flexible tungsten-alloytube and articulating probe with different diameter viewing direction, which canmeet most of inspection demands from various application fields.

What are the advantages of industrial video endoscopes?

Industrial video endoscopes are increasinglyapplied in visual inspection. What are the advantages of industrial videoendoscopes, compared with traditional endoscopes? 1)   Higher display resolution and better imagequality. With high-quality optic lens, videoscope has a great improvement indisplay resolution and image clarity, compared to traditional endoscopes.2)   More compatible with different inspectedtargets. According to field of view, viewing direction and distance, videoscopecan be customized with sideview, front view lens, far focus or near focusviewing distance, which can be adapted to different inspecting requirements.3)   360° flexible articulating operation. Videoscopes are equipped with360° articulating probe. The bending angle is more than 150° in each direction.The bending angle of JEET videoscope can even reach to 190°. It is easy to passthrough the curved part of the inspected pipeline.4)   Joystick control articulation. The probe articulation is controlledby joystick. Users can easily operate it by only a finger.5)   The durability of the insert tube is greatly improved. Thetraditional stainless-steel tube has been replaced by tungsten-braided tube,which can greatly enhance the wear resistance of the videoscope tube anddecrease repair rate. 

What should be paid attention to when using industrial endoscope?

Industrial endoscopes are widely used in many fields, like the inspection of special equipment, aviation, pipelines, pressure vessels, automotive manufacturing, power and other industrial areas. During real application, it will face different testing environment. What should be paid attention to when using it?1) Prohibit the use of industrial endoscope to observe the body or the animal's body;2)Do not use videoscope to inspect equipment in action; 3) Do not use or store the videoscope on explosive, strong electromagnetic field or with combustible gas,otherwise it may cause fire or explosion;4) Do not use it to check objects with current carrying, so as to avoid the occurrence ofelectric shock;5) Do not watch the LEDlight source at the end of the lens straightly, avoiding the effect of stronglight on the visual acuity;6) Never excessivebending, stretching, twisting, rolling cable, otherwise it may cause cabledisconnect, a fire or electric shock accident;7) If there is abnormal inthe angle adjustment operation, stop the current operation, and turn off. Thencontact the supplier;8) Keep the insert tubeaway from any liquid, except water, salty water or oil;9) When finish using,please clean the tip of the videoscope probe in time, to prevent corrosion.

How to select suitable videoscope?

Visual Testing (VT) has become a common testing method in NDT. As an important tool of VT, industrial videoscope has been widely used in various fields such as automotive manufacturing, aerospace, petrochemical, pharmaceutical machinery, electric power, etc. It has become a necessary method of quality control.With the wide application and increasing demands of industrial videoscopes, what problems should we pay attention to when purchasing videoscopes? In the face of various brands, different price of products in the market, how should we identify and seek reliable products that meet our needs?1. Demand positioning: at present, industrial endoscopes are mainly electronic videoscopes. The prices range on the market is from several hundred (rigid borescope or USB borescope) to thousands of dollars (flexible videoscope or articulating videoscope). During the purchasing, we need to consider our inspection needs and budget to select the suitable products.2. Three main factors determining the price of videoscope: resolution, diameter and length. The higher the camera pixels, the higher product price. The smaller probe diameter and the longer the tube, the more expensive the product.3. Articulating control method: It commonly has two methods to control the probe articulation, motor-driven articulation or mechanical-control articulation. There is no difference in function that both ways can realize 360° all-way articulation. Motor-driven articulation is labor saving, automatic reset after probe bending with short delay. Mechanical-control articulation is more flexible and easy control, reset with no delay. In short, these two methods are not much different. People can select according to their own preference.
