May 26, 2022

Teledyne FLIR released the FLIR VS80 high-performance videoscope series, a professional inspection tool for use in a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications.

To enable the widest range of visual inspections, the FLIR VS80 is designed as the most versatile and powerful videoscope in its class. The VS80 is outfitted with a 1024 × 600 high resolution (HD) seven-inch touchscreen display and is available for purchase in seven different kits with the option to purchase waterproof, ultra-slim probes that can be swapped in and out within seconds. Probe options include a 4.5 mm diameter two-way articulating probe; a four-way articulating probe; a plumbing spool probe with a 25-meter cable; single HD and dual HD visible camera probes; a standard definition probe; and a general-purpose thermal camera probe.

“Trades and technicians need to inspect targets in tight spaces, without time-consuming disassembly in many industries including manufacturing, building, and automotive maintenance,” said Rob Milner, business development director, Teledyne FLIR. “The new FLIR VS80 meets all these needs while providing an impressive range of diagnostic versatility across the visible and infrared imaging spectrums. Professionals are better equipped to find hidden dangers and damage in locations that are difficult or inaccessible. In total, the VS80 provides inspection and repair personnel the ability to lower maintenance costs and the capital costs of replacement while improving productivity and safety on the job.” 

Live Reference Simplifies Diagnostics and Repair Confirmation 

Teledyne FLIR offers unique live reference image comparison on the display screen to make historical or standard image comparisons easier. Inspectors simply add a side-by-side reference image with the live videoscope imagery. They can then quickly compare the imagery to see if a component has changed since previous inspection, or if it needs repair or replacement. The information can also be added to a post-inspection report with multiple options for inspectors to capture detailed information, including through text, voice, images, and videos recorded with timestamp display.

The device is also compatible with the FLIR Tools Mobile app available for iOS and Android devices. From a mobile device, view saved images and video captured from the VS80, download files, and share them easily with customers or colleagues.

Affordable Thermal Videoscope 

The forward-facing thermal imaging probe for the FLIR VS80 brings thermal videoscope capabilities to a larger array of users with a price under $1,000 USD, a la carte, or as part of a kit starting at $2,599 USD. It offers 160 × 120 thermal on the end of a one-meter cable to easily inspect attics, crawl spaces, inside walls, inside industrial gearboxes, and other mechanical equipment to quickly identify damages, leaks, and overheating parts that are invisible to the naked eye.
