Features and Benefits

  • Interchangeable Side View Tip Adapter: The iRis DVR XA Option offers an interchangeable forward and side view tip adapter. This increase the video borescope’s ability to inspect orbital weld, turbines, around tight passages and more.
  • 5.0“ (12.7cm) Display: The large integrated display on the iRis DVR X Videoscope system provides superior image resolution versus other video borescope’s tiny 3.0” displays. The large and razor-sharp images on the DVR X Video Borescope
  • 6 Hour Operation Time: The iRis DVR X Videoscope includes a rechargeable high-capacity battery that extends uninterrupted operation time up to 6 hours. This is 3 times longer that comparable videoscopes and video borescopes, allowing you to complete your inspection with time to spare.
  • 4-Way Articulation: Users can easily steer the iRis DVR X Videoscope in all directions with deflections as high as 160°.  Other comparable systems fall flat with weak 90° deflections. The iRis DVR X Videoscope achieves precise tip positioning and can see in areas other video borescopes cannot.
  • Large Digital Storage Capacity: The iRis DVR X Videoscope can record as much as 32 hours of video and thousands of digital images. Other video borescope systems will only record one hour of video, hardly enough to complete most inspections.
  • Video Borescope Measurement: The iRis DVR X Videoscope uses the comparative measurement method to determine the size of a damaged spot. This is the only video borescope in its range to offer any sort of measurement feature.
  • Multilayered Tungsten Braid: The iRis DVR X Videoscope has a flexible working length that is constructed from high strength tungsten. Comparable video borescopes offer stainless steel or PVC. Tungsten resists 5 times the abrasion stainless steel does and makes a tougher, longer lasting video borescope.
  • Text Annotation: The iRis DVR X Videoscope is the only video borescope in its class that offers text annotation. Information can be directly written on the inspection image for later review and reporting.
