What is an inspection camera?
It is a popular digital tool used by inspectors to collect visual data in cramped-up or inaccessible areas. The inspection cameras are small and can easily slide into hard-to-reach areas. They are used by professionals to see, inspect, and investigate issues in the areas that are not generally visible to naked eyes such as the ceiling cavities, the areas behind walls, down the pipelines, on small parts within automobiles, and so on.
The cameras usually comprise a flexible probe or long arm to which a miniature camera module is attached. An inspection camera may have a color or black and white display. They are available in fixed as well as detachable configurations. The video inspection camera kits may feature a small screen that offers the relay of the live video. Many digital inspection cameras are connected through Wi-Fi and work remotely and wirelessly, and their images are usually displayed on a remote screen such as on a phone or a computer.
What is a borescope?
It is an optical tool that comprises a flexible or rigid tube with a digital display on one end and the objective camera or lens linked by an electrical system between these ends. It is also referred to as a videoscope in some scenarios.
What is the difference between a videoscope and a borescope?
Videoscope and borescope inspection cameras are similar in many ways. The following pointers will help you understand it better.
- Borescope: This type of digital inspection camera has fewer and simpler features. They generally transmit images through a rigid or fixed insertion tube. This tube is connected to a digital screen.
- Videoscope: It is a type of borescope that may possess several leading-edge features including image or video recording. They include several features such as articulated controls on the control handle, an insertion probe section, a lighting bundle, a cable interface with display outputs, an external light source of high intensity, and so on.
What is the purpose of borescope inspection?
Borescope inspection cameras are used to inspect industrial equipment and systems for checking damages and quality. Borescope inspection cameras are used to inspect the following:
- Manufactured parts
- Foreign objects
- Heat exchanger tubes
- Internal combustion engines
- Turbine engines
How far can a borescope see?
The video borescope inspection camera is equipped with a bright light and offers a broader view. This view field may range between 50 and 120 degrees or larger. The view field can be easily adjusted using the viewing unit or handset.
How to use an inspection camera?
Video inspection cameras feature quite simple designs and are easy to use. Although these cameras have gained immense popularity in recent years, many people are reluctant to use them thinking they may need special skills. These cameras are easy to use; however, you need to take care of a few things.
- Decide on the specifications of the insertion probe such as flexible or rigid insertion probe, diameter and length of the insertion probe, and so on.
- Take care to choose the probe in the right diameter and length for the desired results. These probes are fragile and may break down if bent beyond their capacity.
- Place the probe of the camera near the inlet and insert it carefully.
- Put on the light source and adjust the intensity according to your visual needs. You should be immediately able to see the desired area.
- Next, put on the recording button and start recording your video in the desired format.
- It is always recommended to use a borescope camera attached to a fairly long probe and tip articulation for better results.
