Everest Mentor Visual iQ+ video probe for visual aircraft, pipeline, and gas turbine inspection.

Powerful intelligence, by touch or voice

Driven by advanced analytics to inspect in entirely new ways, the more intelligent Mentor Visual iQ+ borescope uses computer vision and machine learning to increase data quality while reducing inspection times. The new voice command feature lets inspectors perform measurement, data sharing, and more without needing to touch the MViQ+ directly.

 



A Closer Look at MViQ+

Designed with complex inspection applications in mind, the Everest Mentor Visual iQ+ video borescope meets the highest standards in image quality, 3D measurement capability, and workflow automation.

This industrial borescope offers on-demand measurement with the most advanced 3D capabilities, providing more accurate measurement from increased distances. 3D Stitching combines individual images and corresponding point clouds to a larger image which enables measurement of larger defects across multiple images and the ability to accurately locate the position of defects in relation to a fixed point-of-interest. Users can adjust cursor placements in the fully-surfaced Point Cloud to deliver results with confidence​. 

What's New with 3D Stitching
  • 2X Faster: users can leverage the MViQ+'s increased processing power to run more features simultaneously.
  • Increased Image Limit to 10: the MViQ+ can now handle composite images consisting of up to 10 images where the original MViQ had a limit fo 5.
  • Optimized Algorithms for Improved Point Matching: we are constantly improving our stitching algorithms to give users even more increased performance.

Real3D™ Measurement - Advanced 3D Inspection Software
Advanced 3D Inspection Software​

Real3D™ measurement combines fully surfaced point cloud visualization, advanced measurement algorithms and an insightful 3D Surface Mask to enable more accurate and repeatable measurement decisions. Choose from Real3D Stereo or 3D Phased Measurement which allows measurement on-demand without changing tips.​

​Each of these technologies is compatible with some or all measurement types to help get the measurement needed in every application. They include basics like length, depth point to line and area, but also specialty types including missing corner area, area depth profile, automatic tip blade clearance and radius gauge for boro-blending assessment.

Aside from measurement types, Real3D provides advanced tools such as depth assist and measurement plane to further increase accuracy of measurements.

What's New with Measurement?
  • Missing Corner: measures the area and edge lengths of a missing blade corner with 1 point designating the tip and up to 23 additional points placed along broken edge. Now inspectors can accurately determine how much material has detached for quick engine serviceability assessment. 
  • Surface Angle: measures the angle between a reference plane and an angle plane. For the first time on any borescope, we can now determine deformation or deflection of a compressor blade to provide a the value in degrees. Surface angle uses a simple 4 cursor workflow very similar to depth.
  • Angle: 3 cursor angle function. We’ve actually lifted this function out of the multi-segment measurement type (on MVIQ Flame) and given it a dedicated tile on the measurement page. You can now assign 3 cursors to present an angle value.

Leverage computer vision and machine learning to help improve consistency and reliability of inspection tasks and increase the overall quality of an inspection output. The Mentor Visual iQ+ enables users to leverage analytical models from multiple sources.

  • Waygate Technologies analytics Gas Power-assist and Blade Counter developed to improve inspection reliability and data integrity.
  • Third Party partner analytics are available directly on the MVIQ+; users can leverage Aiir Innovations’ aviation commercial engine models for defect detection.
  • For customers developing their own analytics, the MVIQ+ enables deployment to a global team.
What's New

Analytic models updated with additional training images to improve performance

  • Gas Power-assist updated (v4.1)
  • Aiir Innovation, Aiir Edge Hot and Aiir Edge Cold updated (v7.0)

Turning Tool Integration
2-Way Communication

To enable repeatable image capture of every blade in each stage, the updated protocols let the MViQ+ video borescope and the Rhinestahl FutureDrive NG+ turning tool perform 2-way communication. Previous time delay image capture can sometimes cause errors and consume unnecessary waiting time between stop and image capture. Now consistent images are provided in less time.

FAQs
How do I know which video borescope will fit my application?

Our support team offers consultations to help you figure out which Borescope will be best fit for your inspection device needs. Contact one of our experts.

What can this video borescope measure?

With the power of Real3D™, the MViQ can measure length, area, depth, multi-segment, depth profile, measurement plane and area depth profile.

What is the difference between HD and SD borescopes?

The Mentor Visual iQ has 1.2 megapixel HD sensors to increase image quality up to 1.7 times clearer than standard models operating at 440K pixels. This allows you to zoom into indications until they're nearly 70 percent larger, ensuring the most accurate analysis possible.

How does the rental process work with this borescope?

How do I get the ADR analytic?

A free 90-day trial should be activated after installing your 3.7 software. After that, contact your local Waygate Technologies sales representative.

Is it possible to create other analytics designed for other engine types, components, or defect types?

Yes. Waygate Technologies is committed to delivering Inspection Solutions to the inspection industry. Please contact your local Waygate Technologies sales representative to discuss your needs. 

Due to the common nature of gas turbine architecture and defect classifications, it is likely that this ADR analytic remains application to other gas turbine types beyond those listed in section 4.0. 

Note that LMS100, LM2500, AND LM6000 are aeroderivative of the CF6 aero gas turbine series.

Why should I consider using an ADR analytic?

ADR improves consistency and reliability of inspection tasks by leveraging Computer Vision technology to assist the trained Inspector in conducting the visual inspection. It also reduced the probability of missing indications on critical turbomachinery components. ADR also provides automatic annotation for the user to approve, and it increases the overall quality of inspection output.

Does the MViQ need to be connect to the internet to work?

No. The analytics operate entirely standalone within the device.

Can I use the ADR analytic post-inspection on the MViQ device?

Yes. The ADR can process on recalled images within the MViQ "Flame" handset. Such images can be: those that have either been previously processed using this analytic; or raw/unprocessed images. Inferences can be generated and subsequently saved for presentation or inclusion into the inspection report.
