This new videoscope is uniquely designed for remote visual inspection in tough environments and confined spaces. The IPLEX UltraLite weighs a mere 700 g (1.5 lb), and has a compact body for easy transport, making it the ideal choice for inspectors working in difficult field conditions. Ergonomically designed with intuitive, thumb-controlled scope articulation, the IPLEX UltraLite provides effortless and fatigue-free operation, even during prolonged inspections. In addition, a bright LED light at the scope tip eliminates the need for fiber optic bundles.

Despite its small size, the IPLEX UltraLite offers many features often only found in larger and high-end videoscopes. The IPLEX UltraLite is equipped with Olympus' unique image processor for sharp and clear images. Its superb color-reproducing capability enables inspectors to accurately detect very small defects. Operation is easy with its icon-based menu ensuring instant recognition and intuitive navigation. By pressing dedicated, direct-access keys, the inspector can quickly articulate the scope tip, record images, adjust brightness, and input text. The scope tip instantly and accurately responds to the articulation control, and approaches targets precisely for fast, efficient inspections. Viewed images can be stored to a standard SD or SDHC card as high-quality still JPEG images and MPEG-4 movies.

To accommodate a wide variety of applications and magnification requirements, the IPLEX UltraLite offers a comprehensive range of interchangeable optical tip adapters equipped with bright LED to illuminate targets.

The IPLEX UltraLite's insertion tube is both crush- and abrasion-resistant, and designed with Olympus' Tapered Flex"! technology for outstanding scope maneuverability. With its durability and graduated flexibility, the IPLEX UltraLite insertion tube enables inspectors to detect objects inside narrow and rough spaces.

The IPLEX UltraLite is resistant to rain, sand and dust, and designed to meet IP55 requirements. With its industry-proven durability, it passes the 1.2 m (3.9 ft) drop test, and withstands inspection-site drops and falls.

With its small size, ease of use, durability, and high image quality, the IPLEX UltraLite videoscope is a cost-effective remote visual inspection tool for both novice and experienced inspectors, and is suitable for any application requiring visual inspection inside parts or structures that cannot be accessed using conventional methods. Its applications include oil, gas, and petrochemical pipes, small aircraft engines, gas turbine engines, wind turbine gearboxes, or any other utilization where operator access is limited.
