Four Hawkeye® Blue Flexible borescopes, in diameters from 2.5 mm to 6.0 mm, are 2-way articulating. Control the direction-of-view of the tip over a 300° range (±150°), in a single plane, using a thumb-lever on the aluminum borescope body. Lock the lever to hold a particular view. The field-of-view is 45°, except for the 4 mm, which covers a wide 90° field. The viewable image is large and clear.
Choose the diameter and length you need. Larger diameters have more optical glass imaging fibers, giving higher resolution, and thus sharper, more detailed images.
Use the Hawkeye Blue Flexible borescope to inspect complex castings like engine blocks, turbochargers, tubes, pipes, and turbine engines.
The 8.0 mm diameter Hawkeye Blue Flexible borescope is 4-way articulating. Two lock-able controls on the borescope body articulate the direction-of-view by ±120°, on two mutually perpendicular planes.
The 8.0 mm Blue Flexible contains 25,000 optical glass imaging fibers. All imaging fiber bundles are acid-leached, reducing crosstalk between fibers and increasing contrast.
An impermeable plastic sheath prevents entry of fluids like fuel or oil. A tough, durable, woven tungsten wire sheath surrounds the plastic, reducing friction and protecting the scope from damage by burrs and sharp edges.
The standard ACMI light post on all Blue Flexible borescopes accepts a Hawkeye SuperNOVA Light or a Luxxor Light Guide and Light.
