RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, the global distributor for engineers, has introduced two new inspection kits from Laserliner, offering maintenance engineers and technicians visual inspection capability in areas that are difficult to reach or in potentially dangerous environments.
The first kit is the Laserliner VideoFlex G3 Ultra Plus for professional recordable digital video inspection, which is exclusive to RS and is a useful and affordable bundle set that includes a VideoFlex Control Unit and a choice of two interchangeable ultra-slim snake cameras: the VideoFlex G3 Ultra and the FlexCamera G3. The video control unit includes a rechargeable lithium battery pack, high-resolution 3.5in colour display, and integrated still image and video recording functionality.

The VideoFlex G3 Ultra and the FlexCamera G3 cameras offer a small stainless-steel 9mm camera head, featuring four high-performance LED lights for high visibility. The cameras come with 10m and 1.5m of reinforced feed cable, respectively, and are rugged, shock resistant and fully waterproof to IP65 and IP68.
