The camera is placed within the insertion tube reducing lens length and reducing loss of image quality. The key for the Canty Direct Insertion Camera system is the Canty light. Canty uses fiber optic light guides to focus cool, effective light into a process vessel or area. Cool light eliminates product bake over on the viewing window. Fiber optic light guides have been specifically designed to work in conjunction with cool light to maximize the light transmission into the vessel. The resulting live, remote video image from this illumination is unparalleled.
