Inspect Pipes and Equipment
Need Help Selecting the Right Lens for Your Application?
Many imaging lenses may appear to be similar, but will function very differently based on their optical properties. In this demo a Telecentric Lens used in conjunction with a Telecentric Backlight Illuminator, in a shadowgraph configuration, to measure the inner diameter or height of the pipe’s weld-seam and inspect for partial blockages. The results of the Telecentric Lens are then compared to the Hypercentric Lens, in a borescope configuration. The Hypercentric Lens allows users to see significantly more detail regarding the interior sidewall of the pipe, such as holes in the sidewall or weld-seam continuity, but lacks the ability to perform precise diameter measurements.
