Definition

Manual Articulation is the cheaper but more reliable form of articulation found in modern-day inspection cameras. Without the need for extra and unnecessary or fragile parts, Manual Articulation allows the user to feel the movements of the Bending Section with their own hands. If the articulation seems unresponsive, it is safe to assume that the Bending Section is unable to articulate in a particular direction. Motor-Driven Articulation cannot sense this resistance, which often leads to damaged articulation cables that can be costly to repair. The only downside to Manual Articulation is the inspectable distance that the technology allows.
