The Bosch CLPK28-120 contains the popular and capable Bosch PS90-1A endoscopic camera and the compact PS31-2A Drill/Driver. Although both pieces do sell separately buying the kit offers great value for money. Lets first discuss the camera. The short imaging head allows this camera to get around corners that larger heads would be unable to negotiate. The 2.7″ screen isn’t huge but does feature a video out connector so that it can be connected to external equipment. The output is analogue so if you want to use it an a PC you’ll need an adapter card such as those from Hauppauge.
The Camera waterproof inspection lead is 47 inches long which should be length enough for most jobs. As would be expected the head does contain lighting to aid illumination in dark areas such as up pipes although the range is limited to around 9″ in most cases. The drill driver is compact and high torque. It’s size makes it easy to handle and it’ll fits into places that a larger 18 volt model wouldn’t reach. The variable speed is smooth and the clutch settings accurate.
Both pieces use the same high capacity 12 volt Lithium Battery which is a great improvement over the old Ni-Cd batteries. Two batteries are included in the kit as well as a fast 30 minute charger.
If you are on the lookout for an optical scope to add to your tool kit then this combination set offers exceptional value for money. You can pick this kit up for around $220 which is only a little more than the price of the inspection camera itself and you get the PS31-2A thrown in as well.
