OSCODA, Mich. — Aircraft Tool Supply now carries two video borescopes used to document maintenance issues, train mechanics, monitor progressive conditions, and provide evidence of work.
The ATS Voyager is an articulating videoscope that captures video and still images through a 6.0mm diameter, 1 meter long flexible probe onto a 3.5-inch display screen. Videos and still images are recorded onto an SD card. The articulating tip of this unit swings 240° to reach every inspection point of an airplane with a simple turn of the control knob, company officials noted. Included in the hard-case package is a 70° tip mirror to look at right angles to the normal line of sight.
Aircraft Tool Supply also offers the ATS Inspector. This unit has a built-in digital recorder that takes still images and videos and records them onto an SD card. The semi-ridge probe is slightly smaller than the Voyager at 5mm diameter. Included in this package are three mirror tips; 70° forward oblique, 90° right angle, and a 100° rear oblique for valve inspections.
Both the Voyager and the Inspector have four bright pure white LEDs with intensity control called lateral lighting. Lateral lighting is a feature in which an extra set of LED lights are located on the side of the probe, which when activated, successfully eliminates the glare and spots that are sometimes present when looking through a mirror.
