Video Borescopes
RVI VideoProbes
Powerful, portable, easy-to-use inspection cameras

Waygate Technologies' advanced video borescope inspection cameras are built to use in any environment. With the highest image quality to maximize probability of detection (POD) and measurement capability to accurately assess indications, you can be confident your inspections are thorough and accurate. 

Measure Accurately

Many industrial borescope inspections require measurement capability to disposition indications. Some measurement requirements can be met with standard stereo or comparison measurement, but for more advanced analysis, Real3D™ measurement technology provides a fully surfaced point cloud for measurement cursor accuracy. Learn more about measurement technology in our Real3D™ Measurement Handbook

Maximizing efficiency 

All our video borescopes offer a suite of digital tools to make inspections more consistent and efficient. The intuitive Menu Directed Inspection (MDI)on-borescope application boosts the efficiency and completeness of your inspection data capture workflow by guiding inspectors through the inspection process. MDI provides rich data capture, asset and inspection component location, and asset health assessments for archive storage, analytics, and reporting purposes.

Keeping you connected

Our most powerful video borescopes support wired and wireless communications to PCs, iOS devices, computer networks, and cloud services, as well as on-device software updates and live-stream video collaboration with telestration to allow field inspectors to collaborate with remote experts.

Reducing equipment downtime

Apart from being easy to use, our rugged video borescopes are tested to military standards for durability in harsh environments. So you can reduce the risk of equipment failure, and inspection downtime, too.

What is a Borescope?

borescope, also known as a video borescope, industrial borescopesnake camera, or video inspection camera is another member of the Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) family of technologies that allow for the advanced inspection of assembled and production-level parts without harming the target material/objects in any way. Due to the nature of their design, borescopes are perfectly suited for the remote inspection of objects and materials that are otherwise obscured from the view of the naked eye.

One of the key benefits of a capable video borescope is that it can allow for the inspection of assembled parts without having to incur the time and resource loss associated with tearing the part back down, as well as the increased odds of additional damaged associated with tearing down and rebuilding just for inspection purposes.

At its simplest, a video borescope is comprised of a small camera on the end of a rigid or flexible shaft, in some instances with a light source accompanying the camera on the end of the shaft for greater visibility in tighter, darker spaces. On the other end of the shaft, there is a screen for viewing the real-time images from the camera end of the probe. Many models come with interchangeable probe ends for use in different applications, be they size, environmental, or light-affected applications. 

Modern industrial borescopes are typically manufactured to rugged, mil-spec levels to endure the portability demands and environmental factors often associated with Remote Visual Inspection (RVI). Newer examples also come with onboard connectivity options for the off-device storage of inspection data as well as the ability to collaborate in real-time with a remote team of inspectors and technicians.

Some models of borescopes employ a moveable shaft that can be controlled, also known as articulation, via a small joystick or arrow pad on the handheld portion and allows the operator a greater degree of accuracy when inspecting thanks to the ability to reposition the camera (and accompanying light source) to obtain an optimal reading on a given area of inspection.

How to use a Borescope?

Most RVI applications that are suited to the use of video borescopes require little to no specialized training for the operator beyond becoming familiar with the way the borescope works, and perhaps the imaging and connectivity software onboard the camera.

Before determining the best way to use your borescope, you'll need to understand the factors surrounding your target inspection area such as:

  • How deep is the inspection area, i.e. how long does my borescope need to be?
  • How dark is the inspection area, i.e. do I need a light source, and if so, how strong? Can I adjust the intensity?
  • Am I inspecting in a hazardous area?
  • If the inspection area isn't a straightforward hole (as in the case of an engine cylinder, for example) do I require a flexible shaft?
  • If I require a flexible shaft, do I require one that I can articulate so as to maneuver the camera around multiple obstacles, turns, kinks, or other impediments to my borescope camera's line of sight?

The use of video borescopes in and of themselves is pretty straightforward, the key is using the right borescope for the right application.  

Our sales team offers consultations, including in-person or virtual demos, to help you figure out which Borescope will be the best fit for your inspection device needs.
