Key Features and Benefits

As traditional Measurement Technologies become less adaptable and effective in the modern world, the need for an RVI tool that delivers an accurate assessment for all applications is crucial.

For that reason, the Mentor Visual iQ VideoProbe has been designed to provide a host of benefits for modern inspection teams.

A large, high-quality display: Integrated 6.5” active matrix, color LCD display is easy to read in daylight and low-light situations. A touchscreen is available on Analyze and Touch models.

High-output LED lighting: For illuminating dark areas during inspection.

State-of-the-art electronics: New hardware ensures the Mentor Visual iQ line will have consistent upgrade options moving forward.

3Depth profileD phase measurement: Patented structured-light technology enables inspectors to locate, measure and analyze without having to change tip optics.

3D stereo measurement: Uses the same optical tips as traditional stereo measurement—but employs more advanced calibration and processing algorithms to generate a full, 3D point cloud representation of the surface being viewed.

3D point cloud visualizations: View a live, 3-dimensional point cloud representation of the object being inspected.

Interchangeable probe sizes: Multiple probe sizes available to meet different types of inspection requirements.

A variety of tips available: Choose the tip that best match your field-of-view and depth-of-field requirements.

Highly accurate measurements: Indications can be measured in real–time from the Mentor Visual iQ VideoProbe —and re-measured on a computer later on, without having to relocate the indication.

Connectivity: Wi-Fi options allow you to beam live video from the probe’s screen anywhere in the world, enabling you to quickly share data about an inspection.

InspectionWorks ready: Optional InspectionWorks connectivity allows experts to view a live inspection in progress from across the globe, allowing smarter decisions, faster.

Menu Directed Inspection (MDI): MDI software in 14 languages digitally guides inspectors through the inspection process, intelligently names files and creates MS Word® and PDF compatible inspection reports.

Durability: Designed for use in today’s demanding manufacturing, aerospace, and power-generation environments.

Light, compact and easy to carry: Weighing less than 9 pounds, the video probe is portable and built for extended use.

Remote control: Hands-free operation available through the optional remote control.

Windows file management: On-board, Windows-based file management makes it easy to transfer files.

Easy data transfer: Files can be transferred by removable memory card, USB connection, or through the unit’s on-board Wi-Fi connectivity.

Made and supported in the USA: The Mentor Visual iQ VideoProbe is manufactured in the U.S.A. and supported by Berg Engineering and Baker Hughes, a GE company.

Industries
