PoleCam HD 1000 Cart Inspection System

PoleCam HD 1000 Cart Inspection System

Insertable Shaft and Bore Observation in an upgraded product offering


The PoleCam HD 1000 Cart Inspection System is a visual inspection system that combines an HD Color camera with ultraviolet (UV) and white light illumination mounted on a cart. Engineered to a 1-inch diameter, and with UV and White Light visual inspection capacities, this bore examination system is ideal for turbine components in the aviation/aerospace and power generation industries. 


  • Motorized or manually operated, modular HD (1980 x 1020p) Camera system
  • UV and White lighting meet or exceed requirements for fluorescent inspections
  • Toolless change of optical adapter for different viewing angle
  • FPI and MPI inspection system
  • Generous Vertical and Horizontal Camera Boom Ranges

Intuitive Motion Controls for Cart
  • Focus control to allow for exact, repeatable camera control
  • Horizontal/ Insertion Motorized/ Manual control with a 51 inch (129.54 cm) range
  • Vertical/ Elevation Motorized/ Manual control with 13 (33.02 cm) inch range
Camera System Control Panel
