Teledyne Flir completes its VS290 family of thermal videoscopes with two new kits, the VS290-33 MSX and VS29-21 models. The VS290-33 features a rounded, double thermovisible probe, offering greater flexibility for inspection of underground network vaults and other high-voltage scenarios requiring CAT IV safety ratings. The VS290-21 offers construction and maintenance professionals thermal-only inspection capabilities for building, mechanical and electrical applications in hard-to-reach areas, from crawl spaces to engine interiors.
With the new VS290 videoscope kits, Teledyne Flir offers the VSC-IR33 and VSC-IR21 probes as accessories for existing VS290 customers who already have the VS290 kit with the original VSC-IR32 probe with rectangular tip.
The rounded, dual-thermovisible VSC-IR33 probe boasts a diameter of just 19 mm, enabling it to fit into tight spaces and holes without sacrificing lateral viewing capabilities. The probe is equipped with a 160 × 120 thermal camera and a two-megapixel visible camera, as well as an LED work lamp, to provide MSX images in both light and dark spaces. The camera's Flir-exclusive MSX (Multispectral Dynamic Imaging) software extracts key details from the visible image and embeds them on the thermal image, providing crucial perspective and context clues to enable users to assess potential problems accurately and safely.
The VSC-IR21 probe offers similar specifications in a thermal-only housing, slim enough to access tight spaces and locate potential problems faster than ever before. It offers the same 160 × 120 resolution as the VSC-IR32/33 probe, but in a forward-facing camera, designed to enable users to see inside walls, machinery and other tight spaces.
Improved analysis and reporting
VS290 videoscope kits are compatible with Flir Thermal Studio Suite software for rapid report generation, post-processing and analysis. The software enables operators to document and share problems, and include before and after images to demonstrate that the problem has been solved. In total, users can capture up to 80,000 radiometric JPEG images via the built-in 16 GB internal storage, then download them to a PC via a USB-C cable.
On base units, operators can view live video and captured images via the 3.5" color display. The display offers the option of adding isothermal color alarms to quickly identify potential problems in real time over a temperature range from -10 to 400° Celsius.
The complete family of VS290 videoscope kits is equipped with IP67 camera tips and IP54-rated base units and probes, ensuring a high level of protection against dust and water. Base units are also drop-tested from two meters to withstand the rigors of industrial and outdoor environments.
