Inspection cameras are widely used in the medical sector, particularly for diagnostics. In surgical contexts, such a tool is often referred to as an endoscope inspection camera.
When designed for use in medical practice and surgery, this type of diagnostic camera allows medical personnel toperform remote video viewing of inaccessible areas of the human body. This could include various organs, body cavities, or the circulatory system.
A mechanic’s camera probe might also be called an engine inspection camera or an auto inspection camera. Again, they provide an opportunity to perform detailed visual inspections of areas that can’t easily be seen from outside the vehicle, without dismantling various complex components. Typical examples might include the insides of engine chambers and fuel tanks.
Flexible camera probes can remotely send back video images from within these various sorts of components and mechanisms. This is extremely handy in all forms of automotive diagnostics and repair. It often means that problems, causes, and potential solutions can be identified without having to fully dismantle the engine or other moving parts first. A digital inspection camera can frequently save both the mechanic and the customer significant amounts of time and money when diagnosing problems or planning fixes.
There are countless jobs relating to property maintenance that can benefit from the use of a flexible probe inspection camera. One common use is in diagnosing issues with pipework, plumbing systems, and HVAC systems.
Digital inspection cameras allow problems and fixes to be identified without having to dismantle large sections of ducting. Plumbing inspection cameras are often supplied with extra-long probe reels and have higher IP ratings specifically intended for use in wet environments.
Another important use of these video relay probes in property maintenance and construction work is performing a cavity wall camera inspection. When used as an inside wall camera scope, these products allow the viewer to identify and avoid wiring and stud work.
These devices are also widely used as exploratory cameras when searching for evidence of household pests such as vermin, insects, mould, and other potentially damaging infestations.
