Joystick Articulation Control

The VJ-ADV provides precise control of the articulating tip through the use of a thumb-activated joystick. This joystick responds to the slightest movement of your thumb and allows full movement of the camera tip in all directions.

Combined with a trigger-activated image capture button and thumb-activated video recording button, the joystick allows easy one handed control of all key functions.

Stand Alone Imaging Unit

The VJ-ADV is an all-in-one system that combines an articulating video borescope with an on-board imaging system. As you conduct an inspection still images can be captured with the click of your index finger and a button next to the joystick allows you to control video recording.

The control panel allows you to review stored images and video on the built-in 3.5” LCD display. As an option, you can view or record images and video on a laptop via the USB port or plug-in a conventional monitor.

Enhanced Features

The VJ-ADV incorporates several new features, including a Polyethylene Tube. The ability to record audio annotation along with video through the use of a mini-microphone. Explosive Atmosphere Certification MIL-STD 810G Method 511.5.


High Navigation Ability

The rigid end of the bending section is only 15mm long. This short rigid section aids in navigating the insertion tube through curved or complicated structures.


Battery Powered Operation

The VJ-ADV is fully portable and weighs only 23 ounces, including the required four AA batteries. Run time is typically 1.5 hours before the batteries need to be replaced. Because off the shelf disposable batteries are used, there is no risk of down time waiting for a recharging cycle.

Adjustable Brightness

The LEDs that illuminate the camera tip can be easily adjusted to one of four different brightness levels, or they can be turned off. This feature prevents light washout and helps to always provide a clear image.
