Titan Tool Introduces Two New Portable Video Borescopes for Remote Inspections

Press release date: Dec 01, 2011

Titan Tool Supply, Inc., Buffalo, New York, announces the introduction of two new videoscope units designed for portable, on-site inspections. The articulating video borescopes feature two-way articulation (± 120°) with on-board (stand-alone) image processing and battery-powered operation. Model TTSVS.6-1 is priced at only $4,299.00 and has a braided, stainless steel waterproof insertion tube measuring one (1) meter (40") long with a diameter of 5.7mm (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 (3) meters (118") and a price of only $4,999.00, both much less than competitive borescopes.

The new flexible videoscopes have a high-resolution 3.5" LCD screen with 320 x 240 pixels resolution for clear images, according to Titan Tool Supply. Four (4) 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 3mm to 50mm (0.118" to 1.970") with a 65° wide field of view. The operating temperature range is 23° to 150°F (-5° to 65°C). The still image storage format is JPEG (720 x 625) and the video recording format is AVI (720 x 525).

Titan Tool states that 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 (also 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 ideal 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.
