Extech Instruments launched the BR250-4, a wireless inspection borescope designed to get into openings as small as 4.5mm while providing clear images on its detachable, wireless display. As part of Extech’s “BR” family of video inspection cameras, the new BR250-4 narrow-diameter camera aims to add a level of accessibility previously not available on general-purpose cameras.
Installation, inspection, and diagnostic jobs often require access to hard-to-reach or -see areas. Professionals from industrial and manufacturing sectors to disaster restoration, to HVAC are using Extech’s wireless video inspection borescope cameras to access very tight spots with 2GB capacity to record video or snap photos. By accessing smaller openings or requiring smaller holes to be drilled for access, the BR250-4 helps to simplify diagnostics and documenting inspections while leaving minimal or no damage in the process.
Extech’s BR family expands its versatility with a detachable, wireless 3.5-inch color display. Users can position the borescope as needed to access a difficult location without losing sight of the display. The monitor can be handheld and kept in direct view or affixed to any metallic surface using its magnet mount (included). Alternately, for inspection sites near hazardous or moving components, the wireless monitor can be taken remotely up to 32 feet away.
Captured video (960 x 240 AVI) and images (640 x 480 JPEG) can be viewed on the unit’s monitor or transferred to a computer via the 2GB SD card or USB cable (both included). Additionally, video-out connectivity permits viewing on an external monitor. For instructors, live video from the camera can also be received by the BRD10 wireless USB video receiver for transmission on live internet video streams.
The new camera is backed by a one-year warranty and comes in a hard carrying case complete with magnetic base stand, microSD memory card and adaptor, USB and video cables, AC adaptor, rechargeable display battery, and 4 AA batteries.
