The IPLEX NX brings you the most advanced technologies in IPLEX series. It provides a bright, high-resolution image even in large spaces through a high-quality image sensor, bright laser diode light source, high-level image processing technology, and Olympus's optical lens technology.
The IPLEX NX is engineered to deliver high-resolution images. Its reliable image quality enables users to clearly identify trouble spots and defective areas, so inspectors can make correct judgments about crucial systems and technologies.
View target areas clearer than ever before with IPLEX NX. A trio of enhancements - improved high-resolution CCD technology, intensely-bright laser diode illumination, and the innovative PulsarPic processor - achieve unprecedented image quality that is four times brighter than a conventional videoscope. Inspection targets are brightly illuminated even in large, wide spaces.
Image noise, such as false color, often occurs on glossy surfaces, and random noise in low luminance images can be an obstacle for strict inspections. The new PulsarPic system carries our latest Noise Reduction (NR) algorithm fine-tuned for the IPLEX NX to generate images with less noise for easier decision-making.

A vivid 8.4-inch touch-screen monitor delivers clear, bright images that are readable in any light.
Featuring an 8.4-inch screen, the largest in the IPLEX series, the IPLEX NX displays images that are 1.7 times larger than that of a conventional 6.5-inch monitor.
Comparison of Image Sizes
Scrutinize the subtlest defects in the darkest or most reflective places and over wide areas with clear, bright images. The IPLEX NX videoscope’s sophisticated technology means you get the highest quality images possible for fast and precise inspections.

The IPLEX NX is designed to make precise 3D measurements. Put Olympus’ advanced videoscope technology to work to get inspections that are precise and efficient.
Stereo Measurement measures the size or depth of defects such as cracks found during inspection. The redesigned optical system and enhanced technology achieve a dramatic expansion in the inspection area. Users can now identify and measure flaws from 2X further away in an inspection area 4X larger than conventional videoscopes. Stereo Measurement supplies 3D space information for specific points in an image through precise triangulation, providing accurate length, depth, and shape measurements. The IPLEX NX is designed, manufactured, and fine-tuned to deliver superior accuracy and image quality so inspectors can detect small cracks or defects that were previously measurable only at very close range.
* When contrasted with conventional φ6.0 mm scope model with a direct-viewing stereo optical adaptor.
IPLEX NX extended measurement area (left) can measure previously non-measurable types of defects (right)
Larger inspection area makes it easier to observe larger defects.
* Even if the measurement is performed from the twice apart distance, IPLEX NX is as precise as a conventional model.
** In case of using φ6.0mm scope with direct-viewing stereo optical adapter, the diagonal length of the inspection area of IPLEX NX is almost 4 times of the conventional model.
Note: Actual viewing angle is wider than shown in this illustration.
The IPLEX NX features a unique multi Spot-Ranging function, enabling real-time measurement of the distance from the scope tip to multiple points on the inspection surface. This provides real-time surface shape information with no pause or break in the inspection.
The IPLEX NX is simple to operate and user friendly. Even during long inspections, the NX delivers user comfort and excellent maneuverability, thanks to interchangeable scope units and TrueFeel scope tip articulation.
The IPLEX NX can be configured six different ways to maximize user comfort. The touch-screen monitor can be positioned to maintain comfort when using the IPLEX NX in different environments. The monitor can even be detached from the main unit for added flexibility and convenience. Use the optional handheld remote controller for the utmost light and tactile control.

Pick the right one to fit the job. A single NX videoscope can be configured for varied inspections, with 6.0 mm scopes ranging in length from 3.5 m to 7.5 m and 4.0 mm scopes with lengths of 3.5 m and 5 m.
A newly employed electric motor further enhances TrueFeel operation, achieving rapid and responsive movement. Inspectors can easily control the scope through lightweight, comfortable operation that lessens user fatigue.
Tapered Flex insertion tube combines superb maneuverability with optimized rigidity and flexibility for smooth scope insertion, enabling you to reach target areas quickly and easily. Insertion tubes feature four layer construction with a tungsten outer braid for durability and resilience.
Ghost Image enables inspectors to compare live images with images stored on the videoscope to contrast past and present conditions. This function makes it easier to monitor changes in components over time.
InHelp inspection assist software simplifies data input and management, improving efficiency, simplifying inspections, and organizing stored images. Optional data sets provide a structure to manage your images.
InHelp inspection assist software (for reporting) makes your routine work simple and easy. With optional report templates matched to data sets, you can generate detailed reports with a few clicks.
Wireless-LAN connectivity enable multiple experts to monitor remote procedures at the same time by using an SD card equipped with commercially available wireless LAN, enhancing analysis speed and inspection accuracy.
