The System Full Description

The Ultra-thin USB Micro Borescope (MICRON) represents one of the smallest videoscopes in the world. This is a premium version of our super-thin fiberscopes designed to access extremely small inspection areas, with an insertion probe diameter from 1.0mm (0.0394"), and a wide-angle 90-degree field of view.

The MICRON USB micro borescope is manufactured in the US, and it features a CIS CMOS video camera chip in the tip of the probe, which produces an image of 400 x 400 pixels. This means that you are viewing a true live color image of the inspection area from the tip of the scope. There are no image fibers and, therefore, no honeycomb image. The clarity is far superior to any fiberscope coupled with a camera unit that is on the market, especially in these small diameters.

These units are protected by a black ETFE sheath, which shields the optics in the tip and the wires that run to the camera control unit. Illumination is provided via a built-in LED light source, found in the video processor, which creates the best image. The distal 5mm (0.2") of the probe tip is rigid due to the presence of the camera chip, but the rest of the insertion probe is extremely flexible behind this.

The camera control unit of the videoscope connects directly via a USB cable to a computer, laptop, TV, or tablet, allowing you to view the live image on a viewing program and to capture images/video directly to your hard drive. This also means that there is no eyepiece on the video borescope, so you need to use these with a computer/monitor/tablet.

Configuration with an included Microsoft tablet is also available. In this configuration, the control unit has an adjustable LED light intensity, HDMI out, and USB out to connect to a computer. The tablet itself has a viewing app to inspect and capture files.

Live video is captured at 30 frames per second, while images are captured directly to the hard drive for documentation and future reference. The focal range of the camera is from 3 – 50mm (0.12" – 2"), and the field of view is a wide angle of 90 degrees. If this unit is damaged at all the video probe can be removed from the camera control unit and replaced instead of buying an entirely new unit, but these come with a 1-year manufacturer's warranty against any defects as well.
