Definition

The Insertion Tube is the part of the Inspection Camera that is inserted into the machinery in question. Also called an Insertion Probe, Insertion Tubes are often subjected to deterioration and wear-and-tear from the inhospitable environments found inside industrial machines. Insertion Tubes can contain data cables, articulation cables, and sometimes even a Working Channel. Tungsten, Stainless Steel, and Polyethylene are the three most common materials used to coat Insertion Tubes to make them crack resistant, puncture resistant, and even heat resistant.
