Camera’s Other Outstanding Features

The Rigel Articulating Video Borescope has been one of the most in-demand devices for many years for several reasons. First, it is a portable, hand-held device, enabling one operator to conduct quick and efficient inspections and obtain highly informative reports without the need of any assistance or additional equipment.

Secondly, it features extra rugged, yet maneuverable probes with groundbreaking tip articulation - 120 degrees in 2 directions for 3 m (9.8’) probes and 180 degrees in each direction for 1m (3.3’), 2m (6.5’). Not only does this increase probes’ pushability, it also means that operators can view all of pipe interior in one, easy run. All probes are completely waterproof and interchangeable, which makes the device highly versatile and cost-efficient in comparison with other similar devices in the same price range. A special lock on the probe’s body allows operators to stabilize the tip in the chosen position and capture clear, sharp images of the area of interest.

Thirdly, the camera comes with a sensitive CMOS video chip (100,000 pixels for 4 mm probes, 450,000 pixel for 5.5 mm probes) and powerful LED light illumination, which can be easily adjusted depending on the lighting conditions to achieve the best image quality.

And finally, the Rigel Articulating Video Borescope has a compact, ergonomic control unit with a 3.5” color digital LCD, intuitive control buttons and an anti-slip rubber handle. The system allows for storing data on an SD memory card or transferring it to external devices via USB or video output. Rigel uses a rechargeable LI-polymer battery as a power supply, ensuring safe, wire-free inspections.

Overall, the Rigel Articulating Video Borescope is a great combination of precision, portability and what is even more important – price.
