The second quarter of 2015 is off to a good start for RF System Lab. We are proud to announce a group of impressive companies from a variety of industries as their latest VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) borescope customers. A few of the industries represented below include aviation, power generation, automotive, and casting.
Representing our newest customers in the aviation industry are Ryan Air and Rotortech Services. Ryan Air, an Alaska Bush carrier that specializes in air cargo shipping, required an inspection camera for PT6 turbine inspections on fixed-wing aircraft. They selected the portable VJ-ADV because of its ability to operate fully in rugged conditions and extremely low temperatures. Rotortech Services, located in the much warmer Palm Beach, Florida, provides state-of-the-art maintenance and repair services to helicopters. They took advantage of our free demo program after visiting RF System Lab’s booth at this year’s HAI Heli Expo. Rotortech utilizes the VJ-ADV for Turbomeca Arriel inspections on Airbus rotorcraft. The extreme portability of the AA-battery powered VJ-ADV, weighing in at less than 2lbs, was a big factor in Rotortech’s purchasing decision.
Consolidated Edison (Con Edison) is a new VJ-Advance video borescope user in the power generation industry. Con Edison, one of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the United States, was looking for a high-quality tool to complete internal transformer inspections. The power company selected the 6.9mm diameter VJ-Advance video borescope for their routine internal RVI of their transformer generators. Con Edison needed to complete these routine inspections with oil still present in the transformers, which is why they selected the VJ-ADV, whose sturdy insertion tube can be submerged and still articulate without issue.
We at RF System Lab are proud to have an important member of the automotive industry, Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA Group). FCA Group, an international auto group that is a merger of Fiat and Chrysler, needed a video borescope to inspect the body-side box chambers on the vehicles they manufacture. They had been using a snap-on borescope but were looking to invest in a higher quality tool that featured precise articulation. RF System Lab is grateful that FCA Group made the investment in the VJ-ADV to complete future inspections.
Joining our list of clients in the casting industry is Fredon Corporation. Fredon Corporation, a company that specializes in intricate parts, assemblies, and materials, was looking for the best inspection camera for ensuring the complete removal of burrs and residual sand. The super-slim 3.9mm VJ-ADV was able to smoothly and efficiently navigate through critical core passageways to check for any signs of FOD, which made Fredon’s purchase decision an easy one.

RF System Lab would like to announce new clients from the month of March. The newest owners of the VJ-Advance video borescope (VJ-ADV) come from multiple industries, including automotive, aviation, and oil & gas.
One of our newest customers in the aviation industry is Island Helicopters. This Hawaiian rotorcraft company offers both a Kauai Grand Tour and an exclusive Jurassic Falls (made famous by the Jurassic Park movies) tour. Because their helicopters must make multiple trips each day with civilians on board, they must ensure that all parts are in top-notch condition. The need for quality checks done with complete confidence is why Island Helicopters chose the VJ-ADV as their inspection tool. With its lightweight portability and easy-to-use joystick-controlled articulation, the VJ-ADV was an obvious choice for making sure passengers are safe on their scenic tours.
Another VJ-Advance video borescope user is ExxonMobil, the world’s largest publicly traded international oil & gas company. ExxonMobil was searching for a video borescope that was portable and easy to use for compressor inspections. The hand-held VJ-ADV, weighing less than 2lbs, met all of the company’s requirements. The VJ-ADV’s ergonomic pistol-grip design makes it the ideal tool for companies that value stress-free and efficient internal inspections.
RF System Lab acquired another aviation customer in March: AeroMaritime. AeroMaritime is a Rolls-Royce Authorized Maintenance Repair & Overhaul Center. The company also performs Pratt & Whitney PW200 series field service, making the VJ-ADV an excellent tool for their inspection needs. The four-way articulating 3.9 VJ-ADV fits seamlessly with Pratt & Whitney guide tube, which greatly assists with MRO inspections.
We are proud to have Harley Davidson, a major American motorcycle company, as a new customer in the automotive industry. Harley Davidson is utilizing the VJ-ADV for engine inspections. More specifically, the motorcycle company is troubleshooting problems by filming injectors while engines are running in different start-up conditions. The VJ-ADV’s 360 articulation, slim insertion tube diameters, and on-board video recording capabilities – offered at an affordable price point – were big factors in the purchasing decision.
We at RF System Lab would like to thank these new clients, as well as many additional clients not listed here.

RF System Lab had a record month for VJ-Advance video borescope sales in December, 2014. We are proud to announce an abundance of new inspection camera customers in a wide variety of industries. Clients in December include companies working in fields such as food and beverage, manufacturing, aviation, power generation, aerospace, and more.
We are proud to have surpassed their sales goals by adding the companies listed below, as well as many other impressive industry leaders, to its roster of satisfied customers in December.
One of our customers, representing the manufacturing industry, is Eaton. Eaton provides energy-efficient solutions that help their customers in over 175 countries effectively manage electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical power more efficiently, safely, and sustainably. Eaton is using the VJ-Advance articulating video borescope to perform quality checks by internally inspecting engine components for the automotive industry. The VJ-Advance’s ease of use and high-resolution photo and video capabilities made the justification of the purchase easy.
Many of our latest customers came from the aviation industry; numerous as a result of the company’s successful experience exhibiting at the 2014 NBAA Annual Conference. Two of those customers were New Mexico Airlines and Thunder Airlines of Canada. New Mexico Airlines, the newest, most environmentally friendly airline fleet in the Southwest, is utilizing the VJ-Advance for PT6 engine inspections. We at RF System Lab also ordered the PT6 guide tube for the aviation company, which is a perfect fit for the 3.9mm
VJ- Advance articulating video borescope. Thunder Airlines of Canada, a company located in Thunder Bay Airport that handles scheduled public flights, private charter flights, and cargo flights, purchased the ergonomic VJ-Advance inspection camera to confidently complete power plant and airframe inspections. We are actively growing a video borescope client list in Canada. In fact, two other companies located at Thunder Bay Airport are VJ-Advance customers: Pilatus Centre Canada and Wasaya Airways.
Red Stripe Beer, maker of a well-known Jamaican Lager beer also recently purchased the VJ-Advance. Red Stripe uses the high-quality VJ-Advance video borescope for inspecting Caterpillar Reciprocating Engine Gen Sets. Red Stripe uses the Gen Sets to supply power for their production facility, meaning they have no room for machine downtime. Therefore, they required a videoscope that would perform preventive and corrective maintenance with ease, which is why they selected the VJ-Advance articulating video borescope. The lightweight, portable VJ-Advance, with its 360-degree joystick-control articulation, is the perfect tool to help keep the power running.
Representing the Power Generation industry, we are proud to have the continued business of Exelon Corporation, the nation’s leading energy provider. Exelon has been using the VJ-Advance video borescope since 2009 at multiple nuclear and coal power production plants. We are grateful to have earned their trust and partnership as a supplier of four-way articulating video borescopes. We provided another VJ-Advance for Exelon in December 2014 to assist in completing internal valve inspections.
