SeeUV® VIBES® Shaft & Coupler Inspection System (SCIS)

The SeeUV® VIBES® Shaft & Coupler Inspection System (SCIS) is a cart-based remote visual inspection (RVI) system designed to inspect aviation shafts and couplers.  It combines a high-definition camera, ultraviolet (UV) and white light illumination, and optional fixtures to achieve repeatable and efficient inspections using fluorescent penetrant inspection (FPI) or magnetic particle inspection (MPI) testing methods. Optional fixtures allow part rotation by hand or motor drive.  Position encoders identify the location coordinates of all views.

Illumination Control

Independent white and UV illumination assures a thorough remote visual examination of component internals during white light and ultraviolet inspections. Intensity control of white light and UV operations can be independent or simultaneous. The white and UV illumination is uniform across the field of view and is superior in spectral content and intensity.

Near-Coincident Viewing and Illumination Vectors

Uniform balanced illumination minimizes shadows that interfere with visual examination. The SCIS uses high-grade optics and micro components to ensure the position of the viewing field centers on the projected illumination.

Robust Video Camera

The SCIS employs remotely controlled focus to ensure sharp, high-definition video images.  The HD micro camera can capture color video and still images at 1080p60 resolution to ensure high-quality inspection documentation.

Generous Movement Envelope

With manual or optional motor control, the SCIS camera boom can travel 1800 mm horizontal overall range, 1300 mm horizontal slide range, and 500 mm vertical.
