Extech introduces minimally invasive video inspection camera
An affordable and versatile wireless inspection borescope designed to get into openings as small as 4.5mm while providing bright clear images on its detachable wireless display.
Extech Instruments has launched the BR250-4, an affordable and versatile wireless inspection borescope designed to get into openings as small as 4.5mm while providing bright clear images on its detachable, wireless display.
As part of Extech’s “BR” family of video inspection cameras, the new BR250-4 narrow-diameter camera adds new levels of accessibility.
Installation, inspection and diagnostic jobs for a variety of engineering tasks can use the wireless video inspection borescope cameras to access very tight spots with 2GB capacity to record video or snap photos. By accessing smaller openings or requiring smaller holes to be drilled for access, the BR250-4 simplifies diagnostics and documenting inspections while leaving minimal or no damage in the process.
With the detachable, wireless 3.5-inch colour display, users can position the borescope as needed to access a difficult location without losing sight of the display. The monitor can be handheld and kept in direct view or affixed to any metallic surface using its magnet mount. For inspection sites near hazardous or moving components, take the wireless monitor and inspect conditions remotely up to 32ft (9.75m) away.
Captured video (960 x 240 AVI) and images (640 x 480 JPEG) can be viewed on the unit’s monitor or transferred to a computer via the 2GB SD card or USB cable. Additionally, video-out connectivity permits viewing on an external monitor.
The BR250-4 features the waterproof (IP67-rated) 4.5mm diameter BR-4CAM camera with a 63° viewing angle and bright, adjustable 4-LED lighting. The camera uses a 39” (1m) “semi-rigid” flexible gooseneck cable which easily retains a fixed shape.
