The new iBorescope (DCiS1) from General Tools & Instruments (General®) is the first and only video inspection system of its kind available in North America. Using the instrument’s Wi-Fi hotspot capability and a free iBorescope App, HVACR contractors and technicians can wirelessly view, capture and save high-definition inspection images and video on any iPad® or iPhone®,* eliminating the need for an attached monitor and revolutionizing the video inspection marketplace.
The new iBorescope has countless HVACR and plumbing applications. With a retail price of $299, it offers an affordable way to visually inspect inaccessible or hazardous areas—behind walls; inside drains, pipes, ducts, appliances and machinery; under the hood and much more—and diagnose problems without the need for disassembly or teardown.
The iBorescope generates an ad hoc (i.e., without Internet access) Wi-Fi hotspot, which allows the instrument to communicate wirelessly with your Apple® device. Its standard 9.8mm (0.39 in.) diameter, 0.9m (35 in.) long flexible-obedient camera-tipped probe produces high-definition VGA resolution (640 x 480 pixel) real-time video and still images. The camera has an outstanding depth of field of 1/2 in. to 12 in. (12.7mm to 305mm) and a 54-degree field of view. A thumbwheel on the pistol grip makes it easy to adjust the brightness of the two white LEDs at the probe tip.Included are three handy probe tip accessories (a pickup hook, a 45-degree mirror, and a magnetic pickup). Two longer probes are available as separate options at lengths of 1.8m (70 in.) and 2.7m (105 in.). The iBorescope’s Li-ion battery is rechargeable by an included AC adapter. The unit and its accessories are packaged in a custom molded hard plastic case.
