NEW PORTABLE VIDEOSCOPE FROM LENOX INSTRUMENT
PROVIDES RELIABLE, EASY INSPECTION OF HARD-TO-REACH AREAS
Trevose, PA, March 2003 – Lenox Instrument Company has introduced
its new Portable Videoscope, a truly self-contained and portable
inspection device for use in hard-to-reach locations. It is ideally
suited to inspect for erosion, corrosion, weld quality, surface
wear or security inspection. Operators can view what is being inspected
using a hand-held color display.
The standard Portable Videoscope includes a 26mm CCD camera (about
1-inch dia.) with a light source and is attached to a 60-ft cable
(150-foot cable available) that is flexible enough to be wound on
a 20-inch reel, but rigid enough to push the camera through an opening.
The standard head can be easily interchanged with an optional pan/tilt
camera (2” dia. – great for larger cavities) which features
built-in lighting and full hemispherical scan (full 360° pan;
180° tilt). The pan/tilt camera is operator-controlled by a
joystick mounted on the handheld display.
The entire unit – display, cord, carrier and camera –
can be transported in a typical backpack or courier bag and weighs
less than 10 pounds. The handheld viewing unit features a full-color
LCD display and allows for two hours of continuous use (rechargeable
The standard fixed-head unit is fully submersible; the pan/tilt
head is splash-proof. Either camera head can be fitted with a “roller-skate”
device to aid in horizontal inspection needs (such as the underside
of cars, large pipes and vessels). Extra lighting fixtures/housings
and camera guides are also available.
The portable videoscope is an ideal, handy inspection device for
use in chemical plants, oil refineries, foundries, pharmaceutical
companies, power utilities, aircraft fuselage inspection and a range
of other industries/applications. Likely users of the unit also
include government agencies for security/safety inspection purposes.
The Lenox Portable Videoscope is priced at thousands of dollars
less than comparable units currently on the market and features
a 1-year warranty. Standard 60-foot system is priced at $3,995 each
(vs. $15,000-plus for comparable units on the market). Individually
replaceable components are available from stock or 2-weeks A.R.O.
