Olympus, a leader in nondestructive testing technologies, has recently introduced the Series C. Offering features such as advanced articulation and high image quality, the entry-level Series C videoscope has been added to Olympus’ portfolio of high-end IPLEX videoscopes.

Striking, high-quality still images and videos

The Series C is an industrial videoscope, designed for cost-effective inspections of manufactured parts, structures or areas that have limited direct visual access. Providing a high level of durability with a compact and portable design, the Series C delivers striking, high-quality still images and videos, thus making it suitable for use in diverse inspection environments. The videoscope captures images with the desired brightness by combining eight brightness settings, glare reduction, high-intensity LED, and light-sensitive CCD camera chip technologies.

Highly flexible distal tip

Its highly flexible distal tip and a proprietary spring neck design reduces stress when navigated through tight bends or sharply curved spaces. This feature is a major benefit of the Series C videoscope since it is made highly manoeuvrable. The above is completed by a thumb-driven joy stick on the unit that controls 360° articulation of the distal tip.

Designed for ease of operation

To reduce wear and tear, the insertion tube is made of a tungsten braid that is resistant to abrasion and designed to be waterproof. A protective replaceable cap has been added to the distal end tip of the insertion tube in order to protect the LED light source and the video camera when used in harsh environments.

The Series C videoscope has been designed for ease of operation provided by the built-in 3 in. LCD monitor with its intuitive, icon-based user interface, and the thumb-driven joy stick, which makes it suitable for both routine and more specialised inspections.

The Series C is Olympus’ most affordable videoscope for remote visual inspection, with features and optics which are typically reserved for more expensive instruments.
