Joystick-Controlled, 360 Degree Articulation
The mechanized joystick uses operator input to directly control camera articulation. The result is smooth and accurate control of the articulating tip, with immediate response to joystick inputs. This allows the camera tip to be steered through narrow bores, channels and complex curves. Additionally, the camera will hold its position even when joystick pressure is released. No other video boroscope is easier to use.
Highly Durable and Flexible Insertion Tube
The VJ-ADV comes with a 4mm diameter steel-braided insertion tube and ultra-short, 15mm rigid tip section. The highly flexible and durable insertion tube can be easily navigated through narrow, curved paths. The steel-braided covering protects the insertion tube from rough or abrasive surfaces without compromising flexibility.
2X Digital Zoom
A single control panel button switches the onboard display to a 2X digital zoom*. This allows detailed observation in situations where the insertion tube can not get any closer to the inspection target.
*Zoom not compatible with external monitor display via USB or RCA output.
A temperature sensor located on the tip of the insertion tube measures and displays the internal temperature of the camera module, and delivers a two-stage visual warning to the user when the temperature approaches a dangerously high level*. This warning systems helps preevent damage to the scope from overheating of the camera and electronics.
*The sensor is not designed to measure the ambient temperature of the area being inspected.
By connecting the included hands-free microscope, audio annotation of the inspection can be recorded along with video. This allows the user to further explain the reason for the inspection, findings, and recommended remedial action, if necessary. When still photos alone are not adequate, a video recording with voice overlay provides all the documentation a user could need.
Super High-Intensity LED Illumination
Illumination is provided by four super high-intensity white LEDs located at the tip of the bending section. These LEDs can be adjusted in 5 different levels from OFF to HIGH, to deliver just the right amount of light.
LED Flash Function
The LED Flash function delivers a 0.1 second burst of super high intensity light through the 4 LEDs, allowing you to take a photo of an especially dark area, such as a large diameter pipe. Similar to the flash on a handheld digital camera, it illuminates the inspection target just long enough to capture a clear image.
True Portability in a Compact Package
True portability is made possible through the ergonomic design of the VJ handle and base unit. All key functions, including image capture, video recording, LED brightness control, and camera articulation, can be controlled with one hand. The integrated 3.5 inch monitor allows easy viewing of the inspection target; no external monitor is required. Nothing this portable and compact delivers so many features or is easier to use.
Battery Powered Operation
VJ-ADV is powered by four AA batteries which provide approximately 1.5 hours of run-time. Because off-the-shelf disposable batteries can be used, there is no risk of down time waiting for a recharging cycle. An AC adapter is also included allowing unlimited run-time while plugged into a standard wall outlet.
