General Tools & Instruments: Wi-Fi Borescope
Using the iBorescope’s (DCiS1) Wi-Fi hotspot capability and a free iBorescope App, HVACR contractors and technicians can wirelessly view, capture, and save high-definition inspection images and video on any iPad® or iPhone®, eliminating the need for an attached monitor. The borescope offers a way to visually inspect inaccessible or hazardous areas — behind walls; inside drains, pipes, ducts, appliances and machinery; under the hood; and much more — and diagnose problems without the need for disassembly or teardown. Its standard 9.8-mm (0.39-inch) diameter, 0.9-m (35-inch) long flexible-obedient camera-tipped probe produces high-definition VGA resolution (640 x 480 pixel) real-time video and still images. The camera has a depth of field of ½ to 12 inches (12.7 to 305mm) and a 54-degree field of view. A thumbwheel on the pistol grip makes it easy to adjust the brightness of the two white LEDs at the probe tip. Included are three probe tip accessories (a pickup hook, a 45-degree mirror, and a magnetic pickup). Two longer probes are available as options. The iBorescope’s lithium-ion battery is rechargeable by an included ac adapter. The unit and its accessories are packaged in a custom-molded, hard-plastic case.
