The selection of a light source depends entirely on the application. A light source that is too weak, that delivers an image to a video monitor that does not have enough clarity, can quickly undermine the image of even the most effective borescope. Several light sources are available: the AC-powered high-intensity LED 35-watt, the high-intensity LED 50-watt, the portable battery-powered LED, a UV/white light 200-watt, and the LED UV/white light.
Two different options for lightguides are available: a fiber-optic lightguide and a liquid lightguide for extra illumination.
Micro-Diameter light probes are available either as flexible or rigid in both forward and right angle directions to provide excellent illumination inspection.
If you are looking at a part with high reflectivity like aluminum or titanium, or inspecting from a shorter viewing distance, a tungsten halogen light works particularly well. Please contact a GenScope specialist if you have any questions.
GenScope borescopes are adaptable to a camera, a video monitor, or to a computer for inspection or image capture. Video is user-friendly and cost-effective and the use of monitors and image documentation systems is growing rapidly among GenScope customers. Benefits include documentation, workstation ergonomics, training, group inspections, and multiple inspections.
GenScope also offers an adjustable fixture to hold the camera and scope in position for ease of inspection. The borescope can be held with one hand and the part with the other while maintaining control over both and looking at a bright, clear picture. This allows production inspection to run more smoothly.
Adapters are also available to connect a GenScope borescope to a camera.
