Olympus has announced the global launch of the IPLEX G Lite industrial videoscope that can be used to capture images inside aircraft engines, piping, and other equipment without the need for disassembly.

Industrial videoscopes are a type of non-destructive test instrument for inspecting the interior of confined spaces in equipment such as aircraft engines or piping at industrial plants. The tip of the videoscope is fitted with a very small camera and can be freely manipulated, making these instruments ideal for tasks such as periodic maintenance or inspecting a component’s quality. Through its IPLEX series of industrial videoscopes, Olympus supplies a range of models to meet diverse customer needs.

The new IPLEX G Lite videoscope is the successor to the compact and lightweight IPLEX UltraLite model. The design of the IPLEX G Lite videoscope retains the same small size and lightness, making it easy to use with one hand, while also featuring enhanced image processing and twice the brightness of its predecessor. Ease-of-use has also been improved by the adoption of a touch panel monitor and electrically operated scope tip bending, enabling users to complete inspections more quickly. New recording and playback functions have also been added, including constant video recording. Along with these performance features, the IPLEX G Lite videoscope complies with strict standards (including MIL-STD1 and IP65) to support its use for accurate and efficient inspection work, even under harsh conditions.
