A new imaging camera and recorder from Snap-on promises to cut service time by allowing technicians to diagnose problems in hard-to-see areas quicker and without disassembly, Snap-on said.
According to the company, the BK6000 digital image capturing borescope is useful when inspecting cylinder bores and valves through the spark plug hole, gear wear in differentials and manual transmissions, viewing inside door and body panels, checking under the dash for electrical routing, HVAC actuator operation and radio code verification, or locating fluid leaks when there is no direct line of sight.
The tool records and plays back still images and video clips. It is equipped with a 3.5-in. viewing screen; quick-change connectors to lengthen the tool as needed or to add specialized purpose imagers; a removable and rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack; an integrated stand and hanger for flexible positioning; and zoom control. The BK6000 also has the ability to record comments.
