Borescope camera is used to see in walls, inspect pipes and see inside engines. A borescope inspection is performed in automotive, HVAC, plumbing and machine maintenance and repair, because an industrial borescope camera allows for the nondestructive inspection of hard-to-reach places such as drains, sewer pipes, heating vents, air ducts, furnaces, motors, pistons, gears, valves, compressors, boilers and condenser tubes. Thanks to flexible cables and lightweight enclosures, borescope cameras are extremely agile and mobile. A borescope inspection camera helps you locate potential problems quickly and easily without the need to dismantle a system or machine, allowing corrective measures to be taken before costly downtime occurs.

Criteria for selecting a unit
– Diameter and length of the cable
– Rigid or flexible cable
– Memory / storage for photos and videos
- Borescope with Diameter of 2.7 mm
- Borescope with 4-way articulation
- Borescope for pipe inspection
- Borescope with Telescoping Pole
Diameter and length of the cable
One of the key points to consider when choosing an industrial borescope camera is the cable. Borescope cables are available in many different lengths and diameters. Think about the cable diameter and length requirements needed for your application. In most instances, the diameter is determined by the existing openings of machine components, pipes, vents, etc. With the cable length, it is important not to choose a cable that is too short. If your diameter and length needs vary depending on your application, you may want to purchase an engine borescope / an industrial borescope camera that accommodates multiple cable diameters and lengths. The advantages of such a borescope camera are the one-time purchase price and low follow-up costs for retrofitting, such as purchasing cables with smaller diameters or longer lengths.
Rigid or flexible cable
PCE Instruments offers rigid and flexible industrial borescope cables. Among flexible cables, you can find 2- and 4-way articulating systems. This articulation allows the borescope camera head to be moved in different directions and angles up to 360 °. In flexible borescope cables, images are transferred to the handheld device via a glass fiber bundle or, as it is in the newer digital borescopes, via the camera in the cable. Flexible borescope camera cables are available in many different diameters and lengths, allowing for a variety of practical usages. In addition, most digital borescopes with flexible cables have memories for storing photos and videos.
A rigid engine borescope typically offers very small diameters to allow the inspection of very components and spaces. Industrial borescopes are usually analog, meaning they don’t afford users the opportunity to record and process images and videos without the use of a special adapter (sold separately).
Memory / storage for photos and videos
In many cases, it is necessary to record and store images or video sequences of a visual inspection. Before buying an industrial borescope camera, consider whether or not you require this functionality. Nowadays, many digital industrial borescopes feature a removable SD card memory. A removable SD card makes it easy to download photos and videos to a PC or laptop. With some of the industrial borescope camera models, additional analytical software can be purchased. This software provides measurement capabilities for documenting the progress of cracks or fractures. The documentation can be saved or sent via email.
