SKF video endoscope
SKF Endoscopes TKES 10 series are first line inspection tools that can be used for internal inspection of machinery. They help minimise the need to disassemble machinery for inspection, saving time and money. The compact display unit, with 3.5” backlit screen, allows images and video to be saved and recalled, or to be downloaded and shared with others. Three different models cater to most needs and are equipped with powerful variable LED lighting allowing inspections in dark locations.
  • High resolution miniature camera, with up to 2™ digital zoom, gives a clear and sharp full screen image.
  • Available with a 1 metre (3.3 ft) insertion tube in three different variants; flexible, semi-rigid or with an articulating tip.
  • Small tip diameter of 5,8 mm (0.23 in.), with a wide field of view, allows easy access to most applications.
  • Supplied with a side view adapter allowing inspection of applications such as pipe walls.
  • Powerful magnets, and a tripod mount on the back of the display unit, allow the display unit to be used “hands free”.
  • Up to 50 000 photos or 120 minutes of video can be stored on the SD memory card supplied.
  • Longer flexible and semi-rigid insertion tubes are available as accessories. 
  • Supplied in a sturdy carrying case complete with all necessary cables, universal mains charger and cleaning kit.
