The new Hawkeye Pro V2 Video Borescopes represent the next generation of fully portable, articulating, video borescopes manufactured by Gradient Lens Corporation (http://www.gradientlens.com/V2). “We know portability, image quality, and cost-efficiency are the most important factors for metal machinists, and for aircraft and power gen maintenance personnel,” says Dr. Doug Kindred, Gradient Lens’ President and Chief Scientist. “Our new V2 delivers on all three.”
Recent optical design advances now also deliver an increase in the V2’s field-of-view (FOV) and depth-of-field (DOF). The much wider 70º FOV allows more of the inspection area to be visible to the user. The much “deeper” DOF allow sharp-focus of objects as close as 15 mm, up to infinity. With the optional Close-Focus Tip users can have sharp focus of objects from 4 mm – 22 mm.
The Hawkeye V2 is brighter, has higher resolution, and is more durable than Gradient Lens’ previous design, and most other portable videoscopes on the market today. It is available in diameters of 4 and 6 mm, offers 4-way articulation, is priced starting at $8995, and is made in the U.S. Optional Close-Focus, and 90º Prism, adaptors are available that work seamlessly with the V2 when the subject matter is close to, or to the side of, the borescope tip. Hawkeye Video Borescopes deliver the same image quality, portability, and articulation of scopes costing three times as much.
Fully portable, Hawkeye V2 Video Borescopes have flexible, durable, tungsten sheathing, and come complete with video monitor and light source, all in one easy-to-use device. Video and still image capture is quick and easy, and images are stored on SD Memory Cards. They are available in lengths of 1.5, 3.0, and 6.0 meters. Custom lengths are available upon request.
