Designed to be flexible to your specific requirements, each AVIS system is field portable using our portable LCD monitor. In the plant or shop, you can view using a 13" Color video monitor. These monitors are interchangeable and your choice of either is included in the pricing. The system controller is packaged as one lightweight unit weighing only 10.5 lb's (lighter than competitive units); and only the size of a 3 ring notebook. One common situation we find is for our customers record all their inspections to a standard VCR recorder or portable camcorder that has external video input. Saved images can also be downloaded to your PC for subsequent transmittal via email or posting for review with others. Since there are (3) video outputs on the back panel you can easily take digital photos by using standard, "off the shelf" external PC based video capture devices readily available at your local computer store for under ~$100. Unlike competitors units, we do not restrict our customers to proprietary capture devices, interfaces and cabling causing you to be locked into one manufacturer. Our competitors require you to buy only "THEIR" recorders, capture devices or viewing displays either built in the unit or at inflated prices! Instead with the UXR AVIS unit- you can chose and select from the many good models of these external recording devices and the choice is always your choice!.
The heart of the AVIS Videoscope system is in the tip of the scope where a Sony CCD Video Chip with full DSP (Digital Signal processing) is used to provide the best imaging quality, light sensitivity and remote visual inspections available with this technology scope... and at the best price around!

This 10mm probe is fully sealed with a special manufacturing process using a one-piece extruded polyurethane coating over the whole length of the scope. For preventative maintenance, a pressure test unit is provided with each AVIS system so that the end user can test and verify the scope does not have any leaks prior to insertion into wet environments. This feature is unique and a patented.  Tungsten braid provides effective exterior protection for abrasion resistance, complete immersion in the liquids and other rough environments found in most industrial applications. The AVIS Videoscope is perfect for inspecting gas and steam turbines, piping systems, engines, heavy equipment, tanks, HVAC systems, in hi-rise buildings behind walls, ducting, boilers, pumps, valves, weldments, structural, aerospace, utilities, petrochemical plants, and much more.

Includes removable objective lens capability for narrow or wide angle viewing, +/- 120 degree articulation in 4 directions, 470 TV Line Resolution, freeze-frame up to 32 images in memory, built-in lighting in small, portable controller with simple membrane keypad, outputs for PC parallel, composite video and S-VHS and optional image capture to 3 floppy disk.

Top right - 90 degree (Side view)
Bottom left - 120 degree (Off axis)

Note the articulation swing radius at both 90 degrees and 120 degrees off axis. This scope has one of the smallest bend radius' available on the market with a full 240 degrees of viewing range in an articulating scope!

Easily installed and removable by the user for side viewing applications in small access areas where the articulation cannot be used to view side walls. This tip is a unique, patented optical design not available anywhere else! Adding this tip does not increase the diameter of the scope at all and this is not a mirror.
