New Autoscope(TM) from Lenox Instrument Specified by Teledyne Continental (Service Bulletin SB03-3) for Internal Aircraft Engine Inspection
Trevose, PA, September 2003 - The AUTOSCOPE(TM) from Lenox Instrument Co. is ideal for inspection of any fixed-wing aircraft reciprocating engine. Teledyne Continental specifically recommends the unit in its Service Bulletin SB03-3 which details borescope inspection for a wide range of maintenance protocols, including inspection of internal cylinder surfaces, the combustion chamber, exhaust/intake valve faces, cylinder bores, and piston heads.
The AUTOSCOPE is a very affordable, portable, battery-powered borescope for individuals and organizations involved with servicing of aviation, automotive, truck and marine engines. This handheld optical diagnostic tool lets mechanics inspect diesel and gasoline engine combustion chambers, valves, carburetors, radiators, and body panels without major disassembly, giving them a bright, clear magnified image of existing or potential problems. The units have also been used as an inspection tool in thousands of industrial applications worldwide.
The AUTOSCOPE(TM) provides a probe diameter of either 6 mm or 8 mm, field of view of 70 degrees, focus from 1/4 in. to infinity, and working lengths of 9 inches to 15 inches. An optional angled viewer accessory is available at modest cost. The complete visual diagnostic kit includes eyepiece and probe with internal lens and light system, battery pack, battery extension cord and storage/carrying case.
The Lenox AUTOSCOPE is priced at hundreds less than competitive units (starting at Linder $1,000). It is serviced by Lenox and features a one-year warranty.
