PCBP probes are used to inspect holed objects such as engine parts, containers and tubes whose hidden features can only be controlled by introducing a probe into the cavity. The catadioptric (refracting + reflecting) optical design ensures much higher resolution than fiber-based probes and enables the complete 360° inner view of the entire cavity. Boroscopic probes are intended to be handled by a robot arm or S.C.A.R.A. in order to scan even the deepest cavities. Built-in illumination keeps the device very compact and makes it suitable for simple 3D applications by means of panoramic triangulation techniques.
