Overall view of our 4 way articulating scope
Overview of our 4 way articulating scopes
These excellent quality 4 way articulating scopes are manufactured precisely using very special proprietary processes. They are designed for field use, made to last and withstand the rigors of YOUR inspections. Each unit contains a crystal clear, hi-resolution coherent image bundle of 8 micron diameter fibers that can be directed in both +/- 120 degrees (240 degrees range)in Up-Down-Left-Right directions (+/- 90 degrees for Left-Right with 2.5 meter length) to look off axis to insure complete viewing during your inspection process.
Removable 90 Deg (Side View) Prism Tip Option $495.

The 8mm scopes can be ordered with this optional miniature prism tip. Simply thread on this tip and hand tighten- and now the scope can be used for side viewing and when the scope is articulated- you can look directly back- so this allows a very wide range of viewing angles beyond that of the just articulating the tip off axis. Note that jeweler's like workmanship required to manufacture such a small precision optical component. Not only does this require good cosmetics.... but all optical surfaces must be perfectly fit and aligned in this assembly.
P/N for ordering is FF80P90 $495.
4 Way Articulating Fiberscopes (Flexible Borescopes)

Each 4 way articulating scope is designed for easy use with one-hand operation design. The brake mechanism is automatic and all directions (up, down, left, right) are articulated between the thumb and index finger on one hand. Installed in this line of scopes is an increased size coherent fiber bundle of 1.5mm diameter which contains over 25,000 individual bolosilica glass fibers. Each flexible scope is covered with a Tungsten Impregnated protective braid for protection of the optical components inside and abrasion resistance for a long service life. The light bundle is permanently attached to provide optimum light transmission all the way to the distal tip for bright clear images of your inspections. The DIN standard size eyepiece has adjustable diopter focusing and can be easily upgraded to video operation with the attachment of our FVA series video adapters.
