Titan Tool Supply Inc. announces the introduction of its new line of TVT series videoscopes to provide high-quality remote visual inspections for quality control. The new TVT line includes five different models with working lengths from 1m (40”) to 3m (118”) and three diameters (2.8mm, 4.5mm and 6mm). Titan Tool states that the 2.8mm-dia. model enables inspections through extremely small openings. The videoscopes are for aviation maintenance, casting inspection, cavity inspection, diesel engine repair, gasoline engine repair, locomotive maintenance, ship maintenance, and other areas and application where remote visual inspection is needed.
The videoscopes feature an easy-to-use mechanized (rather than manual) joystick that uses input to directly control camera articulation. This results in smooth and accurate control of the articulating tip with immediate response to the joystick inputs. It also allows the camera tip to be steered through narrow bores, channels, and through complex curves, according to the company. The camera will hold its position even when pressure on the joystick is released.
The videoscopes also feature a 4.3” monitor with resolution from 160,000 to 440,000 pixels and image sensor of 1/18”, 1/10” or 1/8” depending on the model. Depth-of-field is 5mm to 50mm or 15mm to infinity with articulation either 2-way or 4-way (also depending on the model). The sheathing is abrasion-resistant, and each unit is packed in a heavy-duty case that also includes an 8 GB SD card, Li-ion battery pack and a battery charger.
