Titan Tool Introduces Portable Video Borescopes for Remote InspectionsMarch 1, 2012
Titan Tool Supply, Inc. has introduced two new videoscope units designed for portable, on-site inspections. The articulating video borescopes feature two-way articulation (+ 120-degrees) with onboard (standalone) image processing and battery-powered operation. Model TTSVS.6-1 has a braided, stainless steel waterproof insertion tube measuring one meter (40") long with a diameter of 5.7 mm (0.224") and is resistant to oil, fuel and 3.5% concentrated saltwater. Model TTSVS.6-3 is identical to Model TTSVS.6-1 but with an insertion tube length of three meters (118").
The new videoscopes have a high-resolution 3.5" LCD screen with 320 x 240 pixels resolution for clear images, according to Titan Tool Supply. Four built-in LED lights with intensity control and automatic white balance enhance image quality, including on highly reflective surfaces. The units include 5X electronic zoom control; depth of field is 3 to 50 mm (0.118" to 1.970") with a 65-degree wide field of view. The operating temperature range is 23- to 150-degrees F (-5 to 65 degrees C). The still image storage format is JPEG (720 x 625), and the video recording format is AVI (720 x 525).
Titan Tool said the camera image sensor chip is made by Omnivision (USA), and that for portable use, images and video can be captured on a supplied 1GB SD card. The videoscopes also can be connected to a larger monitor through an A/V plug (supplied) or to a computer through a USB plug (also supplied). Both models include a sturdy aluminum carrying case with foam-fitted lining.
According to Titan Tool, the capability and portability of the new videoscopes make them suitable for remote, on-site applications including: power transformers, wind turbines and other power plant uses; security measures; casting dies; automotive and aviation maintenance; shipping and marine; water and wastewater treatment plants; locomotive and railway; heavy equipment maintenance; HVAC and plumbing; manufacturing and building inspection.
