Handheld Inspection Camera Captures Up To 32 GB Of Video And Images

The new Sidewinder push camera can travel up ladders and across catwalks to inspect process piping, heat exchanger tubes, exhaust stacks and other confined spaces. Its camera extends 100 feet into openings as narrow as 7/8 of an inch diameter, using bright LEDs and a high-sensitivity imager to capture vivid inspection footage. That footage is displayed on a detachable wireless LCD monitor capable of recording 32 GB of video and still images.

Submersible to 100 feet, the camera itself is made of stainless steel and has a scratch-resistant sapphire window. Its adjustable-focus 70-degree lens swaps with 40-, 55- and 90-degree options and can be outfitted with an available right-angle mirror adapter for side-viewing.

An array of high-intensity LED lamps ensures shadowless illumination. Optional centering devices attach quickly for centered viewing in 1.35-inch and 1.5-inch pipes. The push rod is composed of electrical conductors within a fiberglass core, all sheathed in a rugged PVC jacket. It measures 3/16 of an inch in diameter, and all 100 feet of it coil into the 11.5-inch reel.
