Able to capture videos and still images, specifications of the robust and reliable RSbranded inspection device include an LED display with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels and a 45-degree viewing angle, a 5.5mm-diameter probe camera with a minimum focus distance of 10mm, and a 1.5m long flexible hose.

Ergonomically designed, the camera is simple to use and features a jog switch and trigger key for easy control.
