System Description

The HDIS-5AB-FC17-2.0 is our most affordable industrial pole camera system. The system’s main application is as an industrial inspection tool that increases the safety and effectiveness of an inspection operation by providing video of the interior of a confined space without having the inspector enter the space.


This system has much of the same performance as our other higher end systems. The system is a hand held pole camera that can transmit encrypted, low-latency (delay), WiFi images that are viewed on to a 5” tablet. The tablet can be worn on the wrist, chest or can be pole mounted at the user’s option.  It is configured with a pole mounted camera that telescopes out to yield a total system length of 17 feet including the handle. The camera head that is positioned manually utilizing a friction hinge that allows the camera to be situated +/- 120 degrees from the straight-ahead center position. The design of the hinge will hold the camera orientation after it is positioned by the operator. Videos and still images can be saved on the tablet for archival purposes and to provide proof of a successful inspection. The 5” tablet display was selected for this system features excellent screen brightness and resolution as our higher end systems, but does not have a removable SD card or battery.


This hand-held pole camera system and display can be used as an inspection tool to increase the safety and effectiveness of inspections by remaining outside of the space. The system allows operators to see into confined spaces that may harbor an unknown and hidden danger, such as limited oxygen, using a low light camera that supports up to 1080P resolution. The modular design is ruggedly built and compatible with many other Zistos specialty cameras such as thermal, valve inspection, ultra-low-light and color zoom cameras.


The system is ideally suited for looking into confined spaces such as tanks, vats, vaults, silos, large void spaces, etc. It allows inspectors to see within a confined space without having to enter.
