Olympus Australia announces the introduction of the IPLEX RX and IPLEX RT industrial videoscopes featuring a compact and robust design.
A world leader in remote visual inspection technologies, Olympus is entering a new era of image quality thanks to advanced image processors and LED illumination systems. The new industrial videoscopes are valuable assets for inspectors looking for superb image reproduction in difficult applications.
The two new IPLEX models provide the latest technology in videoscope instrumentation in line with the Olympus tradition of keeping operators at the cutting edge of non-destructive testing.
The unique PulsarPic image processor greatly enhances image quality and increases the efficiency of detecting tiny defects. It also reduces noise and sharpens images to produce exceptionally high-resolution images in low-light conditions. The new LED illumination system is nearly twice as bright as conventional videoscopes and dynamically adjusts light output to reduce halation from reflective surfaces.
The IPLEX RX videoscope also offers WiDER (Wide Dynamic Extended Range) image processing capability. WiDER enhances detail in shadowed and highlighted areas to produce bright, contrast-balanced images across the entire depth of field. The user-selectable colour and sharpness settings allow images to be customised to suit any application.
Both the IPLEX RX and RT industrial videoscopes feature a compact design for use in the field. Common features also include 6.5-inch screens with an anti-reflective daylight-view monitor allowing accurate inspections even in direct sunlight; rugged durability in harsh environments; International Protection Rating of IP55; compliance with stringent US military standards for dust and rain resistance, as well as drop testing.
The RX and RT models are ideal for locations with limited operator access including boilers, aeroplane fuselages and engines, and wind turbine gear boxes.
The ergonomic, lightweight handsets feature quick-access buttons for most operations, the Olympus power-assist TrueFeel scope articulation control and an intuitive icon-based menu system that allows quick and accurate selection of the right menu option.
The latest IPLEX models simplify post-inspection tasks and data transfer, and feature high-quality JPEG images and AVI movies that record directly to a removable USB flash drive. Images can be saved or retrieved with a single button press, and the thumbnail view allows instant review of inspection results. The instruments’ standard InHelp inspection-assist software streamlines data and organises stored images to further improve workflow.
