Solid Scope Performance for Demanding Applications

High durability tungsten braid

The IPLEX LX is equipped with a high-temperature sensor that cautions with an audible beep and displays a visual warning if the scope is in danger of becoming overheated.
The crush-proof insertion tubes of the IPLEX LX and LT are equipped with an innovative fine mesh tungsten outer braid that results in outstanding abrasion resistance. The tube's strength combined with its flexibility allows operation in the most difficult and hazardous inspection areas.
The IPLEX LX and LT are designed with the unique Tapered Flex™ achieving superb scope maneuverability with optimized stiffness and flexibility. The increased stiffness of the new 8.5 mm scope allows it to be easily pushed deep into an inspection area without the use of a guide tube, making it ideal for long pipe inspections.


Viewing Capability

Building on decades of experience in optical imaging, the innovative IPLEX LX and LT design provides superb image quality of inspected objects.

Excellent color reproduction and superb clarity

Excellent colour reproduction and superb clarity

The industry-leading 6.5 in. daylight-view monitor is larger than comparable videoscopes on the market, always allowing for a comfortable viewing position and convenience for group viewing. Superb image clarity permits the accurate detection of very small defects.

Clear, Crisp Images

The IPLEX LX features our unique image processing capability, WiDER™ (Wide Dynamic Extended Range). This innovative technology brings out detail in shadowed and highlighted areas to produce bright, contrast-balanced images across the entire depth of field.

Ultra-Bright, Interchangeable LED Tip adapters

For optimum magnification and direction suitable for a variety of inspection environments, the IPLEX LX and LT offer a comprehensive range of interchangeable optical adaptors. The integrated LED illumination system brightly lights targets.For inspection of large voids where plenty of light is required,the 8.5mm scope is an ideal solution. Fitted within the scope tip, it delivers vivid illumination regardless of scope length and eliminates the need for a fiber light guide.
In addition, the IPLEX LX is equipped with Hi-Beam mode boosting illumination up to 2X for expanded inspection capability, and the SmartTip™ automatic recognition function. The IPLEX SmartTip optical tip adaptors are automatically recognized when attached to the unit. It also provides instant notification if it starts to detach during inspection, preventing the loss of the adaptor inside the inspected object.

Image Management

The versatile IPLEX LX and LT offer far more than just on-site inspection. From image archiving to defect measurement and image management on a PC, post inspection tasks are made easier after returning from the inspection site.

High-Quality Images and Movies

High-Quality Images and Movies

The IPLEX LX and LT feature high-quality JPEG still images and MPEG-4 movies that record into a removable USB flash drive. Saving or retrieving images requires only a single button press, and the thumbnail view makes it easy to instantly review the inspection results.
Never before has a compact videoscope system offered such high-quality recording while retaining ease of use.

Title Input Function

Exceptional Functionality - Expanded Versatility

The IPLEX LX is a reliable, feature-rich system, providing precise measurement and foreign object retrieval.

Proven Stereo Measurement

Proven Stereo Measurement

Our Stereo Measurement technology provides defect measurements from various angles with simple operation. With diverse measurement modes including distance, height and depth, the Stereo Measurement enables quantitative defect diagnosis.

Accurate Measurement on the First Try

Accurate Measurement on the First Try

The measurement accuracy of a videoscope generally depends on the scope's distance from the target. Our unique Spot-Ranging™ feature, the industry's only real-time tip-to-target distance measurement tool, navigates the scope tip to the optimum distance from a target. The operator can then easily determine whether the tip is close enough to calculate the most accurate measurement on the first try.

Foreign Object Retrieval*

Foreign object retrieval
Adding to the array of versatile IPLEX LX benefits is a new 6.2 mm diameter scope featuring an internal working channel. Six retrieval tools allow you to remove foreign objects from inside inspection areas - ideal for helping avoid costly overhauls - and perform hook and drag inspections in engines. Both forward and side view Stereo Measurement tip adaptors are also available with the working channel scope, providing a complete inspection solution.
*Available only in the USA and Japan.
