Hawkeye Blue Flexible Borescopes (2.5-6.0mm)

Hawkeye Blue Flexible Borescopes (2.5-6.0mm)

2-way Articulating, Flexible & Clear Imaging

Four Hawkeye Blue Flexible borescopes, in diameters from 0.1" to 0.24" (2.5 mm to 6.0 mm), are 2-way articulating. Control the direction-of-view of the tip over a 300° range (±150°), in a single plane, using a thumb-lever on the aluminum borescope body. Lock the lever to hold a particular view. The field-of-view is 45°, except for the 0.16" (4 mm), which covers a wide 90° field. The viewable image is large and clear.

Choose the diameter and length you need. Larger diameters have more optical glass imaging fibers, giving higher resolution, and thus sharper, more detailed images.

Use the Hawkeye Blue Flexible borescope to inspect complex castings like engine blocks, turbochargers, tubes, pipes, and turbine engines.
