In the age of the Internet of Things (IoT), connected tools for specialized inspections are no longer a dream of the future, but a reality of today. Whether you are using a videoscope to inspect the inside of a failed gearbox in a wind turbine, a borescope to look at dirt build up inside a recently detached plane engine, or an ultrasonic device to view pipe welds, the right tool and knowledge determine how quickly you can resolve the issue.
Welcome to the world of specialized inspection. Every day, service technicians across industries rely on information from these specialized devices to determine whether an asset needs repair or replacement.
Sometimes the technician looking at the problem experiences a new situation that adds hours or days to resolution time, especially when the situation requires additional expertise onsite. Travel costs add up and the costs associated with the number of hours or days of asset downtime can be even greater.
