Model FPS-1 Fluorescence Photography System

Fluorescence Photography System – Model FPS-1

The FPS-1 Fluorescence Photography System is a turnkey camera/flash combination preconfigured for completely portable, easy-to-operate photography of fluorescent indications of the type found in NDT – fluorescent penetrant and magnetic particle – and other applications. The system enables you to take fluorescence photographs anywhere – in the booth, on the shop floor, and even outdoors – with no set-up time and minimal need for darkness. Use it for documentation, reports, presentations, or whatever your need might be. Everything you need is included, so you can start with nothing – no photo equipment and even no photo experience – and be downloading high quality images from the camera to your computer in just minutes.

“The FPS system just raised the bar several notches at our facility as to what’s an acceptable method to document fluorescent indications. We should have gotten one of these a long time ago!”
