3D Modeling Expands the Measuring Power of the Olympus IPLEX® NX VideoscopeOlympus Scientific Solutions Americas (OSSA)235, Waltham, MA, USA
Increased Confidence in Measurement Results
WALTHAM, Mass. (May 31, 2019) — The IPLEX NX industrial videoscope’s ground-breaking HD RVI™ imaging is now supported by an advanced software capability, 3 dimensional modeling. The new 3D modeling feature enhances users’ ability to make confident measurements. It enables them to examine the details of the inspection target from multiple angles, making it easier to specify the exact location of the measurement points. More precise placement of these points helps increase the reliability of the measurement results.
Industrial videoscopes are used to visually inspect the interior of confined spaces, such as power plant equipment or aircraft engines, without the need for disassembly. The tip of a videoscope’s insertion tube, which can be freely manipulated, is fitted with a very small camera with its own light source. Industrial videoscopes are widely used for tasks such as equipment maintenance or inspecting a component’s quality. Olympus has been supplying the IPLEX series of industrial videoscopes since 2000 to meet diverse customer needs.
The IPLEX NX videoscope is the first in the series to offer high-definition imaging (HD RVI), and other notable features include:
With the addition of 3D modeling, the IPLEX NX videoscope provides users the ability to:
Rapidly confirm measurement objects
Set reference lines more precisely
Make confident depth measurements
The 3D modeling feature is available as a software upgrade for IPLEX NX videoscopes.
