GE Sensing and Inspection Technologies has expanded its Menu-Directed Inspection (MDI) software to include the XL Go portable video borescope.

The XL Go is a portable, lightweight, high-resolution video borescope.

Weighing 1.73kg, the XL Go can tackle inspections in small, hard-to-reach spaces.

Applications include the inspection of windmills, pipelines, gas turbines, steam turbines, aircraft engines, underground sewer lines, steam generators and heat exchangers, to detect damage or defects without disassembly.

MDI is an intelligence tool that guides remote visual inspection users through the inspection process and auto-generates a data report.

The software elevates user productivity, ultimately providing a 35 to 70 per cent time saving over previous inspection and data management methods.

MDI provides a guided inspection, where context is automatically added to images captured during a visual inspection.

After creating the inspection path, the user conducts the inspection using MDI, which delivers annotations and intelligent file names to captured images.

An inspector can then generate a report directly from the XL Go.

The guided inspection reduces reporting errors, improves data flow for asset management, increases the speed and ease of sharing data and eliminates post-inspection reporting with the click-to-report feature, which automatically creates and distributes an inspection report.

MDI connects with GE’s Rhythm software, a powerful data management platform.

Rhythm Visual is a broad and flexible archiving tool, which stores and shares Diconde-compliant images and data, allowing data mining.

Diconde is an ASTM image standard that ensures long-term data utility and enables vendor-independent access and multi-system communication.
