Extech introduces HDV600 high definition VideoScope Series

Designed for use in practically any environment, Extech's durable HDV600 high-definition borescope camera series features a 5.7-inch color display for bright outdoor sites or poorly lit facilities.


Waltham, Mass.—Extech Instruments, makers of the handheld test and measurement tools, announces the new Extech HDV600 series of High Definition VideoScope Inspection Cameras. These rugged, waterproof and drop-proof industrial videoscopes deliver images and video with high sharpness and clarity, regardless of jobsite conditions.

The HDV600 main display unit’s large 5.7” (145mm) LCD monitor with 640x480 resolution is easy to view in outdoor sites, poorly lit industrial spaces, or aircraft maintenance facilities. SD memory capacity includes 15,000 image/4 hr. video capacity and audio annotations help eliminate manual note-taking.

No two jobs are alike and Extech meets this challenge with both macro and long depth of field camera tips in diameters ranging from 4-6mm. Macro optics are ideal for up-close inspections while long depth of field optics are suited for viewing larger or longer concealed areas. 10m and 30m long fiberglass cables feature 25mm optics. All HDV600 camera tips are equipped with adjustable LED lighting.

Users can select from a number of semi-rigid, flexible, and long-length-fiberglass scopes that connect to the display unit. Scope handsets are also available with wired connections to the main unit and wireless models for inspections up to 10m away.

Articulated controller handsets feature 320 degree articulated 6mm scopes and a large, glove-friendly, articulation control knob with adjustable resistance helping simplify inspections of detail-intensive equipment.

Extech Videoscopes are tested waterproof to IP67 standards and drop-proof to 2 meters.

Extech’s HDV600 videoscope family offers a wide range of handset, optical, and scope length configurations ensuring users order the best combination for their requirements. As needs change, Extech’s modular and upgradeable design makes it easy to adapt videoscopes to tackle tomorrow’s newest challenge.
