XL Flex and XL Flex+ Videoscope Features
Superior Image Quality

Complete your critical inspections with superior image quality thanks to full-VGA resolution for image/video capture and the most powerful LED illumination in its class. And to make the most of these enhanced imaging capabilities, both feature a display that is 85% larger and 3X brighter (3.7” and 5” options) so you can not only see clearer, you can see more. Advanced optics and powerful light output mean less eyestrain during long videoscope inspections and more accurate images. Because when you can see clearly, you increase the probability of detection, speed up borescope inspection workflow and deliver results with confidence.

Military-Grade Ruggedness

Constructed to withstand the rigors of the industrial workplace, the XL Flex and XL Flex+ videoscopes strategically incorporate shock-absorbing materials and seals to resist impact damage and prevent intrusion from dust and water. The inspection camera probe even operates up to 100°C to gain access faster in high-temperature applications where cooling is needed. Designed to meet MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461G, and IP65 (IP55 for XL Flex) standards, our XL family of videoscopes ensure top performance with military-grade durability you can trust, even in the harshest environmental conditions such as:

  • Drops as far as 4ft. (1.2m)
  • Blowing and Freezing Rain
  • Vibration
  • High Humidity, Dust, and Salt Fog
  • Electromagnetic Interference (EMI)
  • Explosive Atmospheres
