Litetec Ltd have released their new industrial rigid endoscope for general sale. The scope, which has received alot of interest and countless pre-orders, is ideal for industries such as cavity wall inspection and the automobile industry.

Litetec’s last endoscope- the Portascope- sold well for over 9 years, however they noticed customers asking if a smaller diameter version was available. So they designed one. The new scope- the Portascope MK2′ is only 9.6mm in diameter, compared to the latter version of 12mm diameter. The new scope comes in a foam lined case as before, however with the added benefit of a scope saver as standard in a kit. This helps protect the scope from dirt and debris, and before was a additional item.

The battery pack on the new endoscope is also much smaller, at 150x70cm and enables easier charging with a automatic light.

This scope is available to purchase online at

Specification sheets and further details can be issued, please contact litetec on 01702 540187 or email


Litetec announce new ‘Portascope MK2’; smaller diameter industrial endoscope

March 2, 2009

The Portascope MK2’ manufactured by litetec is a low cost endoscope ideal for inspection and illumination of inaccessible areas. With a diameter of only 9.6mm, the scope is a welcome addition to the building surveyors’ industry for cavity wall inspection.
After over 20 years success with their original robust rigid endoscope the ‘Portascope’, Litetec have once again used their expertise in optics and fibre optics to create the ‘Portascope MK2.’ Paul Wale, MD of litetec, says

“After the success of our 12.7mm diameter ‘Portascope’, we listened to the changing needs of our customers and realised there was a gap in the market for a low cost, robust scope with a smaller diameter…The response so far has been great.”

With such a smaller diameter the end user is able to access difficult to reach areas without having to drill a large hole through the wall or ceiling, making it easier, quicker and less destructive to complete the job
The complete kit also includes our scope saver as standard. This helps protect the outer tube from debris and keeps the unit clean. The scope is supplied in a foam lined case, with a spare lamp and small rechargeable battery pack.
This endoscope is produced at Litetec’s Essex branch to the highest quality ISO:9001 standards.
