A high-end industrial videoscope system combining portability with advanced functionality, and ease of use with durability. From high image quality inspection to retrieval operation, the versatility achieves various benefits beyond your experience.
The IPLEX FX introduces new levels of durability to industrial videoscopes with its shock-resistant case design and wear-resistant scope exterior. Adding "strength-of-construction" to a frequently used, job-essential tool produces one tough, reliable and long-lasting piece of industrial inspection equipment.
Cast Magnesium-Alloy Chassis for Impact Resistance
The main component of the IPLEX FX base unit chassis is Magnesium - renowned for its strength and light weight. A typical material used for industrial environment equipment, Magnesium was chosen to provide the impact resistance and solid base that withstands the knocks and bumps that commonly occur to industrial videoscopes. In addition to a crush-resistant chassis each corner is protected by rubber bumpers, further softening a drop and maximising product reliability while reducing potential for damage. The IPLEX FX survived the repetitive 4 feet drop test for compliance to MIL-STD 810G.*
*MIL-STD (The United States Defense Standard) is used to help achieve standardization objectives by the U.S. Department of Defense.
The Chassis corners are protected by rubber bumpers to reduce the impact force created by the typical bumps and knocks of an industrial workplace.
The crush resistant cast magnesium chassis is the core of the IPLEX FX mechanical design strength. The extra durability in construction results in extra protection against equipment damages.
Abrasion Resistant Insertion Tube
The most critical component of any remote visual inspection tool is the insertion tube. It performs the basic requirement of accessing the inspection area and frequently navigating through narrow paths with abrasive and rough surfaces.
Tough TaperFlex coil
The Olympus Tough TaperFlex coil features graduated flexibility for easy scope maneuverability and navigation.
Inside resin tube
Articulation wires and electronics only. With LED illumination at the scope tip, fiber optic bundles are not necessary.
High-density braided exterior
High density outer braid fulfills durability and 3x greater fray resistance without compromising the flexibility and ability to navigate through the most difficult inspections.
Pliable distal end
To navigate through tight bends or corners, minimum bend radius and shorter rigid tip sections are an essential design criteria for our scope tip, optics and tip adapters.
Portability and Ruggedness
The simplicity and portability of Olympus videoscopes has seen their usage extend to areas not considered 'traditional' application areas. Go to these harsher environments, but take a system designed for the job… IPLEX FX.
True Portability - Compact, Lightweight, Battery-Powered
Power is provided to the FX by an internally mounted, Lithium-Ion battery which provides over two hours runtime. The compact size of the FX makes portable operation a reality - either body-wear the light weight system or place it on a surface and allow the non-slip, rubber corners to hold it in place while you carry out your inspections.
The FX scope units are resistant to insertion in higher temperature environments - now 100°C (210°F) meaning that inspections can take place sooner as you won't need to wait as long for the area to cool. Additionally the 6.0mm and 4.0mm diameter scope units both feature a temperature sensor to provide a two-stage visual warning to prevent reaching an over-temperature situation.
Resistance to harsh environments
To prevent the ingress of debris, all mechanical joints are hermetically sealed and input/output connectors are covered.
IPLEX FX complies with internationally recognised Military Standards (MILSTD 810F/G*1). This compliance assures a greater level of environmental performance than regular industry standards and provides increased reliability against dust and fluid. The inventive design of the FX has removed the need for a cooling fan, and therefore no air intake is required. This results in even greater environmental resistance.
