RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, a global multi-channel distributor, has introduced two rugged diagnostic videoscopes from Fluke that target maintenance engineers and other professionals needing to undertake equipment inspections and diagnose problems in a wide variety of industrial applications.
The new rugged Fluke DS701 and DS703 FC videoscopes offer high resolutions of 800 x 600 and 1200 x 720, respectively. Key features include: high-definition probesthat come with dual-view cameras, enabling video or still images to be taken in hard-to-reach locations; 7-inch LCD viewscreens; and IP68-rated probes and imagers for protection against dust and water projected from a nozzle.
The units offer a macro-to-micro zoom function and Fluke’s ‘Up is Up’ technology, which is designed to rotate the screen to enable better image views. An intuitive user interface also offers easy-to-navigate button technology. Both devices have been built to withstand a drop of 2m. They are supplied with an EVA foam protective case, hand strap, and HDMI and USB cables.
Typical applications targeted include: inspection of bearing surfaces and lubrication in production and manufacturing environments; aircraft maintenance and automotive quality assurance; as well as other heavy-duty maintenance applications such as the inspection of clogged pipelines or corrosion in rotors.
Key for these types of inspection applications are rugged, powerful and high-resolution videoscopes that deliver a clear update on the condition of internal components in equipment and other electrical systems, thereby enabling professionals to quickly and easily identify issues and schedule preventive maintenance to avoid expensive system shutdowns.
The Fluke DS701 and DS703 FC videoscopes are now shipping from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
