The VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope is a nondestructive visual testing instrument with integrated optics, illumination, image processing and joystick-actuated steering. It is used for the remote visual inspection of machinery, equipment and components. The VJ-3 facilitates the visual recording and photo documentation of an inspection of parts and areas of vital equipment that are otherwise inaccessible or that would require great effort and expense to access directly. The VJ-3 consists
of two modules integrated into one system: the insertion tube with distally mounted camera/ LEDs, and the base unit with control panel, LCD monitor, power source and all necessary circuitry. The VJ-3 is available from the factory in a variety of configurations suitable for different tasks, with optional insertion
tube lengths and diameters, as well as different light wavelengths: white, infrared, or ultraviolet. The video signal from the VJ-3 can be viewed on the integrated LCD display or on an external hard-wired monitor.
