Hawkeye Blue Flexible Borescopes

2-way Articulation

Four Hawkeye Blue Flexible Borescopes, in diameters from 2.5mm to 6.0mm 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 4mm which covers a wide 90° field. The viewable image is larger 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.

4-way Articulation

The 8.0mm diameter Hawkeye Blue Flexible Borescope is 4-way articulating. Two lockable controls on the borescope body articulate the direction-of-view by ±120°, on two mutually perpendicular planes.

The 8.0mm Blue Flexible contains 25,000 optical glass imaging fibers. All imaging fiber bundles are acid-leached, reducing crosstalk between fibers and increasing contrast.

An impermeable plastic sheath prevents entry of fluids like fuel or oil. A tough, durable, woven tungsten wire sheath surrounds the plastic, reducing friction and protecting the scope from damage by burrs and sharp objects.

The standard ACMI light post on all Blue Flexible Borescopes accepts a Hawkeye SuperNova light or a Luxxor Light Guide and Light.
