Streamlined to simplify the complex.
Everest Mentor Flex VideoProbe™
With mounting demand to get inspections done quicker and cheaper, without compromising the accuracy of the results, most equipment can’t withstand the pressure. Combining portability with military-grade durability, the Everest Mentor Flex answers the call with the features you always wished you’d had for the tasks that demand it — all to help you make smart decisions, fast.
An industrial, versatile video borescope, designed for ease of use in any environment, the Everest Mentor Flex features:
- A Wide XGA touchscreen display with improved brightness and viewing angles lets you see more, so you can increase the probability of detection.
- Intuitive user interface and Menu Directed Inspection (MDI) speed up the workflow with digital tools for auto image tagging and report generation, so inspectors can consistently deliver results with confidence.
- Advanced mechanical design enables increased articulation range and extended life to ensure thorough inspections of the entire asset in less time.
- Wireless video streaming and data transfer to iOS devices powered by InspectionWorks.
- Stereo and comparison measurement interface for accurate and precise defect assessment.
Always Up to Date
Instead of trying to keep up with the pace of operational demands in the world, the Everest Mentor Flex is future-proof and future-ready. With easy wireless upgrades and planned software releases, you can keep equipment up to date and stay ahead of the curve.
It’s That Simple
When time is critical and inspections need to be precise, your choice in borescope matters. But when the price-competitive Everest Mentor Flex delivers the same level of confidence you’ve come to expect from Waygate Technologies — all while future-proofing your inspections — the answer is simple.
Everest Mentor Flex Videoscope Features
Wide XGA (WXGA) Touchscreen Display
Complete inspections with unrivaled TrueSight™ image clarity, housed on a large 5.8” WXGA (Wide XGA) LCD screen with Gorilla® Glass. Industry-leading light output means clearer images and more accurate assessments. Because when you can see clearly, you increase the probability of detection, speed up inspection workflow and deliver results with confidence.
Intuitive User Interface
Point to What You Need
The Everest Mentor Flex’s virtual keyboard enables 300% faster annotation, and its multi-point touchscreen provides pinch-to-zoom as well as swipe and pan gesture functionality. Menu Directed Inspection (MDI) empowers inspectors with auto-image smart tagging and automatic report generation, plus customizable user profiles and an embedded help menu. Last, but certainly not least, InspectionWorks Connect takes inspections to the future with wireless video streaming and file transfer to iOS devices over dual-band Wi-Fi.
Powerful and Responsive
In any industry, time is money. With an upgraded articulation design founded on high-power steering motors, the Everest Mentor Flex allows technicians to effortlessly navigate even the most challenging inspection paths, resulting in less time spent searching and more time spent capturing and analyzing indications — at a fraction of the time and cost. Two and a half times more torque than today’s motors provides an increase of 42% in articulation range. And 16% less friction gives an ultra-responsive feel while extending articulation over the life of the product.
Unmatched Image Processing
Detect the Undetectable
All cameras apply Gamma Correction, but Dark Boost assesses the content of scenes and intelligently adjusts levels to digitally brighten darker areas — for instance, those with bright foreground surfaces or glare — without overexposing or degrading the contrast of more uniform scenes. Similarly, wide fields of view with some tip optics can cause an image to appear to be curved at the edges or have a “fish eye” appearance. This distortion can be so great that the edges of turbine blades or other objects being inspected may appear bent. With Distortion Correction, the Mentor Everest Flex automatically corrects this and flattens the edges of the image, thereby enabling wide field-of-view optics without the inaccuracies. Together with Color Saturation, these features provide high-quality images that show not only textures but flaws and defects that were previously undetectable. When you can see clearly, you increase the probability of detection, speed up inspection workflow, and deliver results with confidence.
Constructed with military-grade magnesium housing (MIL-STD) and tested by a third party to withstand the rigors of the industrial workplace, you can trust your Everest Mentor Flex borescope to deliver top performance in even the harshest environmental conditions.
