THE Searchcam Mongoose provides rescue personnel with a multi-purpose video inspection tool.
Borrowing the state of the art technology of its big brother, the Searchcam 2000 Victim Location System, the Mongoose is designed to give emergency personnel the ability to visualise hard to reach areas.
The company asserts that, due to its small size and manoeuvrability, the Mongoose lends itself to so many uses at the rescue scene that its use is truly only limited by one's imagination.
Available from INLINE Systems P/L , the Mongoose can be used at structure collapse incidents to get into, and manoeuvre within, small void spaces.
It can also be used as an aid to breaching operations to allow rescuers to check for structure stability as well as victim safety.
The Mongoose is valuable at vehicle and industrial extrication incidents. It can be placed under the dash to check for foot and leg entanglement or behind heavy machinery to visualise the patient's degree of entrapment.
The smaller Mongoose camera head fits into tight spots with ease. The 120º articulation allows excellent viewing range and is smooth and precise.
The Mongoose camera head articulates in one direction a total of 120º. This allows the camera to look backward, toward the operator.
The 16 element white LED illumination and full colour camera provide excellent picture quality in zero light conditions at a distance as close as one inch to over six feet away. The detachable display provides increased operational flexibility.
One hand operation can be undertaken with the display attached, or the display can be removed for limitless probe manoeuvrability.
As with all Searchcam systems, the Mongoose is designed and built for quality. There is no plastic in this product. It is machined from solid, high strength aluminium and is built to take a beating.
The Mongoose is compatible with all Searchcam 2000 accessories and batteries. The Searchcam Mongoose is designed for rescuers who want Searchcam quality in a tight spot.
