Industrial Videoscopy at one Glance
Videoscopes and Industrial Video Endoscopy
The medical sector is not the only field in which video endoscopy plays a major role. In the industrial sector, many optical inspections are carried out with the help of videoscopes and borescopes. In the course of a visual inspection, they are used to perform various safety and quality assuring cavity inspections that cannot be done with the naked eye or larger cameras. One of the most important features of video borescopes is that they are available in a variety of small working diameters and lengths, so that cavities of different lengths and with different opening diameters can be inspected.

Unique inspection experience with the UV endoscope UVin. High-performance, standard 365 nm UV-LEDs excite fluorescent agents and make them visible. Via dye penetrant testing you perform especially revealing surface crack testing with the UVin. During magnetic particle testing, too, the UVin makes small material defects and indications visible. White light and UV LED are separately controllable, making it easier to distinguish real flaws from spots that just appear to be indications due to the lighting.

FAQ Video Endoscopes
Decision making is not always easy. Especially not when making a long-term decision such as buying an inspection system. That’s why we have listed a few frequently asked questions about video endoscopes below. If there is anything else you need to know, feel free to contact us!
What is a videoscope?
Industrial videoscopes, also called video endoscopes or video borescopes, are flexible inspection camera tools with different diameters and work lengths. In the tip of the videoscope probe is a small image sensor covered by a camera lens. Videoscopes are used for non-destructive testing of narrow environments such as pipes and tubes, but also for non-destructive testing of engines, steam generators and different kinds of turbines.
What is an industrial videoscope used for?
Industrial videoscopes are inspection cameras with a flexible probe. viZaar videoscopes are available in lengths up to 30 m and help with remote visual inspection of areas and applications that could otherwise not be inspected.
How do videoscopes work?
Videoscopes usually consist of a control unit, a probe and a camera head. Some videoscopes such as the VUMAN or VUCAM are articulatable, e.g. via air pressure or mechanical tip articulation. An optical system connects the videoscope lens with the control unit and the image can be displayed on a screen. Most video endoscopes come with an integrated display, but sometimes it is necessary to connect the videoscope to an external monitor. Depending on the industrial videoscope you are using, it is possible to record and take pictures and to also edit and comment to them.
Where is videoscopy used?
Industrial videoscopy is practiced in many industrial fields. Non-destructive testing with videoscopes e.g. takes place in the automotive and automobile sector, in aviation, in gas and oil industries, foundry industries, power plants, manufacturing plants, aviation and aircraft, defense and safety engineering and many more.
Can I rent a videoscope?
Yes, there are companies that rent industrial videoscopes. viZaar is one of them. If you don’t want to or cannot afford to buy an own videoscope camera, renting one is a very cost-efficient solution. Find out more about rentable videoscopes.
What kind of videoscopes are there?
In general, you can distinguish between large videoscope systems for long range inspections, such as the VUMAN, portable handheld videoscopes, e.g. VUCAM, and stationary video endoscope solutions. Depending on the application and inspection requirements, you need different video borescopes. In such cases, videoscopes with interchangeable probes are a great solution for efficient and flexible visual inspections.
