New digital borescope from Snap-on Tools

Snap-on Tools, a subsidiary of Snap-on Inc., has introduced a new digital borescope, the BK6500.

“With the BK6500, service technicians will get sharper image transmissions that will help them diagnose the problem area on a vehicle much faster and more efficiently than any analog borescope. The BK6500 is a great value for professional technicians and is available at a lower price than the competition’s analog model,” said Dan Batassa, category manager for Snap-on.

The new Snap-on Advanced Digital Borescope (BK6500) features:

* 4.3 inch (109 mm) diagonal LCD screen for enhanced viewing that has a 40 percent larger viewing area than previous model

* Ability to confirm mechanical problems before disassembly

* Dual-imager lenses: Straight ahead and 90 degree angle, providing unmatched image quality at 90 degrees and eliminating the FOD hazard of a detachable mirror

* Imager length: 36 inches (914 mm)

* Touchscreen interface for easy feature selection

* Ability to store the digital video image to internal memory or to a microSD card

* Rechargeable lithium battery

* USB port to transfer data

* Two-year warranty via Snap-on repair centers

Applications of the digital borescope include:

* Inside cylinder to inspect: valve stem, valve seat, valve face, piston top, and cylinder wall

* Inside a manual transmission and axle housing

* Under the dash to read radio codes

* Inside door panels

* Behind the engine block

* Inside a radiator to check for corrosion
