The New Rigel-UF 4mm Articulated Videoscope is Going to be a Gamechanger

Medit Inc.2, Winnipeg, MB, Canada

Automotive and aviation engine inspections demand small diameter scopes for visual inspections of hard to reach places, such as turbines, valves and pistons to name a few. Fiberscope.net has introduced a new 4mm version of their very popular and affordable Rigel Video Borescope to allow spaces with even small access points to be visually inspected.

(PRWEB) October 18, 2012 -- Visual inspection of engines and other hard to reach places with small access points is very important for ongoing safe operation in the automotive and aviation industries. NDT inspections like those are best done with video borescopes with small diameter probes with cameras and lights in the tip that can be inserted into these dark hard to reach areas. Inspecting with borescopes saves time and money as this can be done with little to no dismantling of the area or object being inspected, and the visual results are shown on a screen, and recorded. The smaller the diameter of the probe the more places you will be able to access, but smaller diameter probe can also be more fragile, or harder to manipulate while doing inspections. The Rigel Ultra Fine (UF) 4mm articulated Video Borescope is Fiberscope.net’s option for an affordable rugged scope for inspections that have small diameter access points. These scopes are built tough, to withstand the rigors of industrial use. The handheld unit is built with a two way articulating tip for even more versatility during the inspection. The braided metal insertion probe is oil, water, diesel and gas proof, this allows for inspections without having to clean out tanks or lines, saving even more time.

Fiberscope.net saw success with their economically priced handheldRigel videoscopes, these highly portable units stand up to wear and tear and offer great quality for the price. Seeing the demand for scopes with smaller diameter probes Fiberscope .net produced a scope with the same attributes that were well received in the original but now with a smaller 4mm probe to allow for more versatility during inspections.

In the field of aviation, PT6 engines are extremely popular and reliable. These engines made by Pratt & Whitney Canada, require 4mm diameter borescopes for comprehensive inspections of inaccessible areas. These inspections check turbines, combustion chambers and fuel systems for damage or general wear and tear. Regular maintenance of these systems can detect problems before they start to affect the safe running of an engine, and save time and money on repair costs.

The Rigel-UF is a high quality 4mm videoscope at a lower price point than similar diameter scopes, and is available with features such as; the CMOS camera, and 3 LED lights built into the tip, rechargeable Li-ion battery, and a bright 3.5” LCD screen for viewing the inspections in real time.
