The smallest video probe we have for hire is 2.4 mm (0.09 in) in diameter. Video inspection probes offer state-of-the-art technology to inspect pipe work of all sizes, ducting, wall/floor voids and many other areas – effectively places which are inaccessible to the human eye.
How can a small camera see in spaces that have no natural light? Video probes are fitted with lights which are either comprised of fibre optics or LED illumination. Fibre optic lighting tends to feature on smaller diameter instruments. Illuminated guides can offer light up to 50 m (164 ft) but the diameter of the guide is larger.
The key advantage of video probes is their ability to provide high resolution real-time video outputs, allowing us to see the cause of the problem and in some instances, if it is a blockage, solve it there and then using retrieval tools to remove the obstruction. The footage can also be recorded or captured in still photographs.
The video probe’s control unit is where the sophistication becomes apparent. Simple systems offer controls for illumination, while higher end models incorporate features such as character generation, electronic zoom, picture comparison, and video image storage and image transmission capability.
We offer a range of video probes on a rental or contract basis, from 2.4 mm (0.09 in) in diameter upwards and of varying lengths. They offer a flexible, compact and effective inspection solution. Contact us directly to find out more.
