Are Any Video Borescopes Truly Intrinsically Safe?

Because video borescopes utilize an electrical current from either an onboard battery, or AC power to power the camera image sensor, it is not possible to classify video borescopes as Class 1 Div 1 intrinsically safe. At this time no company should claim they have a true intrinsically safe battery or AC powered video borescope. Any claims of intrinsically safe borescopes should be backed up with paperwork and carefully vetted and reviewed with your safety department.

Some borescopes, like the ViewTech VJ-3 and VJ-4, have passed tests related to safety in explosive environments.
