Best videoscope rental Image Quality

The IPLEX RX and RT feature the best videoscope image quality. PulsarPic™ image processor reduces noise and sharpens images, resulting in the exceptionally high-resolution image. The IPLEX RT faithfully and brightly reproduces very small defects, and the sharp and clear images enable accurate and reliable inspections.

2X Brighter Illumination System

The IPLEX RX and RT feature a new LED illumination system that is approximately twice as bright as conventional videoscopes, while dynamically adjusting light output to reduce halation when metal or reflective surfaces are inspected. The PulsarPic™ image processor interacts intelligently with our illumination system to deliver an optimized amount of light and gain enhancement to provide images that are very clear and sharply defined.

Still Images and Movies as Crisp as Live Images

The IPLEX RT can record inspected images to a removable USB flash drive as JPEG still images and MPEG–4 movies. The improved image quality of recorded images and movies enables accurate image diagnosis not only in the field but also at the office with the use of our free image management software, InHelp viewer.

Large Monitor Providing Easy Yet Accurate Inspections

The compact IPLEX RT are equipped with a 6.5 in. monitor. The large monitor displays small defects clearly from a comfortable distance for inspectors for easy identification.

Compact and Portable Design

The IPLEX RX and RT weigh just 2.9 kg/ 6.4 lb including the two‐hour operating Li‐ion battery. The compact and portable design allows you not only to easily ship or transport the IPLEX RX and RT to inspection sites but to smoothly carry them to difficult-to-access locations. The IPLEX RX carried up a ladder with a shoulder strap. The compact and neat design is easy to carry with one hand

Comfortable Inspections in Optimal Styles

The versatile design of the IPLEX RX and RT offers comfortable use to almost anyone. The pivoting handle of the monitor can change into a stand during inspections, and allows you to place the videoscope wherever you want to optimize viewing distance and angles. The video output capability of the IPLEX RX and RT enables inspections in a group or from remote locations by connecting the external monitor. Furthermore, the IPLEX RX and RT can be used while being carried with a shoulder belt or connected onto a tripod.

Smooth and Accurate Approach to a Target

The innovative articulation technologies equipped on the IPLEX RX and RT allow for smooth and accurate approaches to the most demanding inspection paths. The improved TrueFeel™ articulation controller features precise and quick scope tip articulation by just light-touch operation, achieving smooth navigation through intricate paths. The insertion tube is designed with the unique Tapered Flex™ to optimize both the scope stiffness and flexibility for excellent scope maneuverability.

Quick and Easy Operation

The most common operations such as scope articulation, image adjustment and recording can be easily activated by pressing dedicated Quick Access keys on the lightweight handset. The menu setting of the IPLEX RX and RT is simplified for easy and quick operation.

User‐friendly Menu Icons

The IPLEX RX intuitive menu shows the options for image overlay All menus of the IPLEX RX and RT are displayed with easy‐to‐understand icons. An inspector can intuitively recognize the menus and efficiently operate the desired feature or setting.

InHelp™ Inspection Assist Software

InHelp, the inspection data management and reporting software, streamlines many aspects of remote visual inspections with the IPLEX RX and RT. The software greatly improves work efficiency and simplifies inspections by organizing stored images on the IPLEX RX and RT, generating detailed inspection reports on a PC with simple click operation.
