PalmScope Video Inspection System

Posted by Irina Tabakina

The PalmScope (DCS950) from General Tools & Instruments is a pocket-sized video inspection system built to survive harsh environments of vessel maintenance and offshore maintenance. The clamshell design allows the camera-tipped probe to be coiled safely and conveniently inside the device. Retailing for less than $150, the video zoom button allows the user to zoom up to 4X, increasing the odds of spotting problems.
