The ORION portable handheld video borescope is small in size, ergonomic and features a wide scope of advanced imaging characteristics. Orion is especially popular among operators who have to work in limited spaces, climb steep ladders, stay in awkward positions for prolonged periods of time and operate in other conditions that require compact yet precise devices.
This video borescope is available with both flexible and flex-and-stay probes of various diameters and lengths and directions of view (DOF) to help you reach difficult spots or navigate bends and obstacles in the pipes of different diameter. The insertion probes range from 2.8mm (0.110") to 16mm (0.629") in diameter, and are all water-, oil-, diesel-, gasoline- proof (IP 57) with an integrated high-resolution CMOS Video Camera chip. The camera chip is faster and more sensitive than any current generic products on the market.
Super bright LED lights provide brilliant illumination, virtually eliminating glare when inspecting reflective or metallic surfaces. Light intensity can be manually adjusted depending on the lighting conditions.
The video borescope can be also supplied with an extra large 16mm (0.63”) diameter camera head. The camera head diameter has been increased to fit additional super bright lights and a high-resolution camera to offer you even greater inspection experience in extremely dark areas. It houses 4 extra bright LED lights and is ideal for exploring air ducts, HVAC systems, vents, behind walls, cars in customs searches and any other hard-to-reach areas. Any problem or flaw can now be thoroughly inspected with defects being clearly documented regardless of how dark the problem area is. The modification with 16mm diameter camera head and extra bright LED's can also be used for basic plumbing inspections since both the camera and probes are tightly sealed and waterproof.
The new Argus video borescope base features a 3.5” color LCD monitor with 720*640 pixel resolution and a very light compact easy to hold design. These monitor units are ergonomic, and they come with a tripod attachment and a magnet attachment to make setting them up on different job sites incredibly easy. The monitor also features digital enhancements like a grid, mirror image, brightness and contrast control, and an 8x zoom, to inspect problem areas in greater detail. There is also an SD memory card included in the set to capture all images and video, hidden behind a protective sleeve on the rubber bumpers of the monitor. Along with the memory card, this right side of the monitor also houses the power connection, USB connection to transfer files, and the TV output, to view live images on a larger TV monitor, so clients or colleagues can review and discuss them. With the protective sleeve in place this universal monitor is also splash proof. The Argus offers intuitive operation regardless of the operator’s level of expertise, with large ergonomic buttons, and user-friendly menus.

If the probe tip gets scratched (small glass lens in front camera) during normal use, is it possible to simply change the tip or we have to buy a complete cable kit ?
- Written by Olivier Jacob
It's a great question Olivier, thank you! Unfortunately if you happen to scratch or break the lens tip you will need to replace a whole probe. Good news though they are not expensive. Please contact our sales team if you need further assistance with your order.
