GENERAL EXPANDS THE SEEKER LINE OF VIDEO INSPECTION SYSTEMS
 9/21/2011  by 

(New York, NY)  General Tools & Instruments (General®) has greatly expanded The SEEKER Line of Video Inspection Systems to provide comprehensive, cost-effective solutions that meet the wide-ranging technical and price-point needs of HVACR contractors and technicians. What distinguishes The SEEKER Line of Video Inspection Systems from the competition are the variety of system combinations offered, the range of interchangeable probes with different lengths and diameters, and the ability of some models to stream live video over the Internet.

 

General is the only supplier of video inspection systems that offers multiple, interchangeable, small-diameter probes (5.5mm, 9mm and 12mm). With their close-focus capability (0.5 to 5.0 in. depth of field), the small-diameter probes allow a close-up look at the internals of a system or piece of equipment. All scopes in the line come equipped with flexible-obedient, camera-tipped probes that have adjustable lighting and are water, oil and dust proof to IP67 standards. Both the 5.5mm and 9mm probes are available in lengths of 1m, 2m and 3m, while the 12mm probe accepts 1m, 2m and 3m extensions that increase the overall reach to 5m.

 

The SEEKER Line includes more than seven powerful and practical models, the least expensive being the wired wand-type 050 model, which plugs into a PC via USB and operates using the PCs monitor. The 100 model, which is also a wand-type and operates using a PCs monitor, connects wirelessly and features video over Internet capability. The low-cost pistol-style 200 and 300 models are non-recording and feature 2.4 in. and 3.5 in. integral monitors respectively. Additionally, the three models in the wireless, recording 400 Series also offer video over Internet capability. Both THE SEEKER 100 and 400 Series models have integral transmitters that communicate wirelessly with the new RCV100 Wireless USB Video Receiver (included with The SEEKER 100, optional with The SEEKER 400). The RCV100 plugs into and is powered by the USB port of any recent Windows computer and working in concert, the grip, the receiver and included software allow video to be streamed over the Internet via Skype.

 

All SEEKER Video Inspection Systems are designed for numerous HVACR applications such as detecting leaks, inspecting corrosion and deposit buildup, and reading hidden part and serial numbers. The devices also have a wide range of applications in the plumbing, construction and restoration, and home inspection industries.
