Perfect for hard-to-reach places that need inspecting.

As someone with a lot of tech gear, I pride myself on the level of care I take with my cable management. I’ve used just about every trick in the book to tie up and tuck back cables to make everything look neat and clean around a workspace. The biggest challenge I’ve had thus far has been cable management beneath an open smart desk. Because there are fewer places to hide power bricks and cable bundles, you have to enlist additional help. My favorite assistant in this venture is the 2×2 inch Open Slot Wire Raceway from StarTech.com. Two years ago I used that remarkable accessory to run cables, but it’s been a never-ending battle with the addition of other devices to the workspace. So today, I run into the issue of tracking down cables to their place of origin and trying to snake them through the raceway without damaging them. While I can tear down the raceway and start from scratch, I would much rather use the DS430 Professional Industrial Endoscope from Depstech to assess the situation and make a viable plan.

DETAILS

The DS430 Professional Industrial Endoscope is a dual-lens endoscope that can inspect the range of 178º to its front and side. The front camera has a focal range of 3–10cm and the side camera is 2–6cm. There is one button that switches between the front camera and the side camera so that you can shoot at different angles as much as you need. The camera is located in the end of a 16.5-foot long gooseneck snake cable. This cable can be folded into different shapes and reach deep into areas that need inspection. The cable connects to a control monitor that features a 4.3-inch IPS screen. This allows the user to view an image in real-time as it’s being captured by the camera. The monitor has a 3000 mAh battery powering it for 4–5 hours of continuous work. The endoscope also has seven adjustable LED lights and four external fill lights on the side with three different lighting modes to assist during inspections with the camera.
