The world's slimmest video endoscope
Using the latest LED technology, broken fiber glasses are history with the VUFLEX system. Through the activation of turbo mode 25 and more lumen make it possible to inspect even 4" / 100mm internal diameter. Two different light optimized available optics (100° FOV und 60° FOV) are the basis for a perfect inspection. The picture quality impresses with color fidelity, sharp contrast and freedom from noise!
With a width of only 2.4 millimeters the VUFLEX inspection camera can be easily guided through narrow tube lanes, as they are encountered in nuclear steam generators (including Siemens KWU type) or even in conventional heat exchangers.
The world's slimmest VUFLEX camera system allows a variety of inspections in the smallest spaces. Never before with this small design such a high resolution has been reached! Our design has ensured that a hand-inspection as well as work with manipulators is possible.
Alternatively, the higher resolution VUFLEX system is available with a length of up to 15 meters. The optics can be adjusted by ±30° depending on the application. In addition the tools for external parts recovery can be integrated in the VUFLEX.
