XL Go+ VideoProbe
Redefine Portability
Whether you're climbing a 100 meter tower to inspect a wind
turbine gearbox, crawling atop a refinery heat exchanger or
creeping under a turbofan jet engine on a test stand, a portable video borescope is essential.
The XL Go+ VideoProbe system combines portability with
performance—delivering sharp, clear digital images on a
system designed to meet inspection needs across a wide
range of industry applications.
XL Go+ combines cordless operation with a host of features
found in systems three times as large. Unlike other video borescopes, the XL Go+ has no bulky base unit, no backpacks, no
tethered scopes or power cords to get in the way—ensuring
unlimited inspection access and unprecedented ease of use.

Redefine Image Quality
The ultra-compact XL Go+ VideoProbe system doesn’t sacrifice image quality for the sake of portability. Its white LED and crystal–clear active matrix VGA LCD give inspectors the sharp, detailed images needed to ensure accurate detection and analysis,
even in applications with poor lighting conditions. The XpertBrightTM LCD has enhanced image quality for better readability in
sunny or snowy outdoor environments and harsh indoor lighting. An intuitive user interface makes it easy to save still images or
record motion video to the internal flash memory or removable USB® ThumbDrive®.
XL Go+'s Versatile Features
• XpertSuite—enhances the probability of detecting
and identifying flaws using precise steering, superior
visibility and easier viewing.
• LED technology—produces more light output than
most other LED video borescope, uses less power
and runs cooler than traditional illumination systems.
• VGA LCD—matches display to CCD imager
performance for outstanding image quality.
• Still images and motion video—captures non-com-
pressed BMPs, compressed JPGs or MPEG video.
•
Optical tip adapters—offers numerous Field-of-View,
Depth-of-Field and Direction-of-View options for
enhanced versatility in multiple applications, and are
more reliable than LED lenses.

Redefine Ruggedness
The XL Go+ VideoProbe system is constructed to withstand the
rigors of the industrial workplace. Shock absorbing materials
and seals are strategically incorporated to resist impact
damage and to prevent dust and water intrusion.
To ensure top performance in a wide range of environmental
conditions, XL Go+ has been subjected to a battery of
performance tests.

XpertSuiteTM Improves Probability of Detection
XL Go+ has a host of new features designed to help increase the probability of detection. XpertSuite complements the Go's
superior image quality to provide enhanced performance to assist in locating and measuring defects.
XpertVision™ External Monitor
An optional battery-operated monitor supplements the XL Go+
system. The monitor easily connects to the Go and provides additional
viewing by a second inspector or remote observation.
XpertBright™ Readable LCDs
Both the XL Go+ and the XpertVision LCDs are designed for maximum
readability in strong outdoor lighting, harsh factory lighting or snowy
environments. XpertBright enables optimum viewing while enhancing
image quality.
XpertVision External Monitor
XpertSteer™ Probe Articulation
Coupled with Servomotor All-Way® articulation, XpertSteer offers quick, responsive
steering. When you stop steering the probe stops moving - no more overshooting.
A bump steering feature enables tight probe control. A small "bump" of the joystick
moves the probe at a small increment for better defect visibility.
Camera in tip
XpertLight™ Probe Illumination
Increased probe light output improves the image quality and the likelihood of a
thorough inspection. The increase in light output also improves performance in
larger area applications.
Temperature Warning System
A sensor integrated into the camera head monitors
temperature and provides three levels of on-screen indication
to prevent damage from high-temperature environments.
Probe Operating Temperature up to 100°C (212°F)
The probe can gain faster access in higher-temperature
applications where cooling time is needed (e.g., aircraft
engines).
Data Storage Options
Save still images and MPEG motion video to internal flash
memory or choose between two external USB® ThumbDrive®
bays.

Powerful Software Technology
Advanced User Interface
Intuitive drop-down menus combined with on-screen cues make XL Go+
simple to operate and powerful enough to offer text, audio and graphic
annotation.
File Manager
XL Go+ uses a convenient method for recalling files, creating folders, copying
and viewing thumbnail images. Save images directly to USB® ThumbDrive®
and transfer files from the system to USB drives.
File management system with a thumbnail-based image and
video recall system
Patented Menu Directed Inspection (MDI)
MDI is the first software tool to standardize the inspection process in the NDT industry. This optional patented software helps
guide inspectors through the inspection process and intelligently names saved images and videos, and auto-generates
reports—saving time, improving quality and increasing productivity.
Tip Map
XL Go+ has a Tip Map that aids inspectors in guiding the tip. A grid shows the tip direction and helps inspectors maintain orientation or better navigation.
Measurement
The XL Go+ is the only video borescope to offer ShadowProbe®, StereoProbe® and Comparison measurement capabilities.
Inverse + and Zoom features allow precise cursor placement.
