  • Rental

Olympus IPLEX NX Videoprobe –  4mm / 3.5m –  Available for rental/hire from Ashtead Technology.

With innovative image processing software and stereo measurement capabilities the Olympus IPLEX NX Videoprobe is suitable for inspection diameters from 4mm and comes with a 3.5m probe length.  

The Olympus IPLEX NX provides an exceptional view of your inspection area by combining a high-resolution CCD, an intensely-bright laser diode illumination system and PulsarPic image processing software.

To further enhance your visual inspection and the possibility of detecting defects, the IPLEX NX utilises a built-in 21.3cm screen which allows you to perform live analysis on your application area. The NX can also record JPEG images and MPEG-4 videos, for further offsite analysis / reporting. 

Capable of stereo measurement inspection, the IPLEX NX can analyse the following defect characteristics -

  • Length/Distance
  • Depth
  • Point to Line
  • Area
  • Multi-Segment Length

A development in technology now means that the IPLEX NX is capable of measuring flaws in a larger inspection area and from further distances than previous models, making inspections easier. 

With a detachable monitor, you’re able to position the IPLEX NX to suit your application area and maximise operator comfort.  The unit also rents with a handheld remote control which allows you to control brightness, zooming, display switching, recording, joystick operation, spot ranging and the activation of measurement function.

Simple to operate, the IPLX NX has full tip articulation (up/down/right/left – up to 130°) and is suitable for a number of remote visual applications including combustion chambers, turbines and aircraft engines. 

Rents with: IPLEX NX Videoprobe System, 100 minute battery pack x 2, Battery charger, Mains lead, Reporting software, Handheld remote control and 2m extension cable
