Issue: December 2018

DS701 and DS703 These videoscopes from Fluke are used to inspect and diagnose problems in industrial equipment such as pumps, motors, gear boxes, compressors and conveyors. They clearly display the condition of internal equipment components on screens with resolutions of 800 pixels by 600 pixels for the DS701 and 1,200 pixels by 720 pixels for the DS703 (shown). Each device features high-definition probes with dual-view cameras, allowing the videoscopes to take images from different angles in difficult locations. Adjustable lighting and a zoom function are standard. Each videoscope comes with a protective case, hand strap, magnetic hanging strap and HDMI and USB cables.

What’s new? The videoscopes, which are a new type of product for Fluke.

Benefits Improved troubleshooting. The DS701 and DS703 allow maintenance workers to quickly identify equipment issues and schedule maintenance to avoid unplanned downtime. The rugged devices are engineered to withstand a 6.5-foot drop and have a probe with an IP68 rating for protection against dust and water. Additionally, Fluke’s Up is Up technology orients the image for optimal viewing, regardless of the orientation of the probe.
