FLIR Systems unveils industry first flexible dual sensor videoscope

FLIR Systems Inc., an industrial technology company focused on intelligent sensing solutions for defence and industrial applications, has launched the FLIR VS290-32, an industry-first videoscope that combines thermal imaging and a visible camera specifically designed for safer and more efficient inspections of hard-to-reach underground utility vaults. The VS290-32 is the company’s first industrial-grade, electrical safety-rated, flexible dual-sensor videoscope on a replaceable, two-meter-long camera probe.

For use in the most demanding environments, the VS290-32 is CAT IV 600 V safety rated for electrical inspections, along with an IP67-rated camera tip and IP54 base unit to protect against dust and water. The device features FLIR Systems’ patented Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX), which improves image clarity by embossing visual scene details onto full thermal images, providing crucial context to accurately and safely assess and identify potential issues to prevent blackouts and asset failures. A low-profile tip and bright LED work light provides illumination for MSX in dark environments, including under manhole covers or in other tight spaces such as attics, within HVAC systems, and inside machinery.

“The ruggedized and electrical-safety rated videoscope with MSX will drastically increase the ease of thermal inspections within tight, hard-to-reach places at power generation plants, power distribution systems, manufacturing facilities, and for public safety, and building diagnostics inspections,” said Rickard Lindvall, General Manager, Solutions Business, FLIR Systems.

The VS290-32 features a FLIR Lepton thermal sensor and offers the option of hot/cold colour alarms, or isotherms, to quickly identify areas of concern across a temperature range from -10 to 400 degrees Celsius. The device includes a dual battery charger along with lithium ion rechargeable batteries that each provide up to six hours of continuous use.  

“Safety is Con Edison’s top priority,” said Andrew Reid, Section Manager-Engineering & Analysis in Distribution Engineering, Con Edison. “This new tool allows our crews to safely, efficiently, and effectively inspect vented manholes and identify potential problems without having to remove the cover or even having to enter the structure. This reduces the physical effort required by our crews, the time it takes to complete an inspection and enhances data collection activities to support our ongoing infrastructure planning and maintenance.”

The VS290-32 is available globally through FLIR and authorized FLIR distributors. To learn more about the FLIR VS290, visit www.flir.in/VS290-32. For any query, please contact us at +91-11-4560 3555 or write to us at flirindia@flir.com.hk
