    What is Industrial Endoscope?

    An industrial endoscope refers to an optical device that consists of a hose (flexible or rigid) with a lens at one end and an eyepiece attached to the optical system at the other end. Cameras in industrial endoscopes can produce high-quality images without spending a fortune. The device also comes with lighting and vision systems. The lighting system requires an optical fiber to illuminate the interior of the area. The vision system is usually a rod, gradient, or lens optics, mounted on an internal metal tube. The optical system transmits the image, which is then seen by the human's eye.

    In addition, the camera is equipped with endoscope, which can transmit images to a computer or monitor. There are three parameters that affect:

    • The length of the operation part
    • Diameter of operating part
    • The angle of the viewing direction

    The borescope provides at least 1.5x magnification, and the image appears larger when close to the inspection area. Industrial endoscopes differ from ordinary endoscopes in that they have a camera resolution of up to 25 lines per millimeter.

    Endoscope can be created to handle work when it is impossible or impossible to reach the inspection area. This is why industrial endoscopes are widely used for visual inspection of internal combustion engines, steam turbines, industrial gas turbines and aircraft engines. Performance evaluation and maintenance of trucks and cars also require the use of industrial endoscope.

    A flexible endoscope is required when the path between the area and the operator is not straight. In general, this aperture lens consists of the eyepiece lens, protective sheath, objective lens, fiber bundle, focusing and diopter rings, light source.

    In a flexible endoscope, the number of glass fibers can be as high as 40000. There are two bundles of fibers in a flexible endoscope: the first bundle connects to the light source and illuminates the object being examined, while the second bundle allows the image to be displayed into the eyepiece. The bundles are protected by flexible stainless steel.

    The tip of the probe consists of an electronic sensor through which the image is electronically transmitted to the processor. In addition to creating video images, endoscopes are also good at generating still images.
