Perceptron® Announces the Release of Its Wireless Video Scope

PLYMOUTH, MI--(Marketwire - September 27, 2010) -  Perceptron, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRCP), a leading provider of visual inspection solutions for Plumbers, Electricians, Technicians and Construction Professionals, today announced the release of its wireless video scope. The wireless video scope represents a significant advancement in Perceptron's visual inspection product line. Designed for the technician, it specifically allows a mechanic to control the imager/probe independently of the screen. The independent movement allows the technician to maintain a comfortable viewing angle while maneuvering the imager into challenging locations and orientations.

"The new level of maneuverability will save the technician time and enable him to perform inspections not previously feasible," said Richard Price, Vice President of Perceptron's Commercial Products Business Unit. "The wireless imager signifies Perceptron's commitment to utilizing innovative technology to solve common problems experienced by our principal end users."

The wireless video scope is the third significant product Perceptron has added to its family of visual inspection solutions for technicians in the last year and a half.

Previously, a UV/Blue Imager was introduced to dramatically aid in the detection of automotive leaks. The custom manufactured LED illuminates fluorescent dyes found in most OEM air conditioning systems. The special UV filter on the camera allows the technician to see the leak without a direct line of sight.

The Dual View Imager has cameras pointing forward and to the side of the imager. The user can change his view by toggling a switch near the base of the imager. The Dual View Imager is the ideal tool for inspecting cylinder walls and valves. The Dual View Imager provides superior illumination and image quality that cannot be matched by scopes that use mirrors.

Both the Blue/UV Imager and the Dual View Imager are compatible with all of Perceptron's automotive video scope products, including the new wireless unit.

For more information on the family of visual inspection products please call Richard Price at (734) 414-4606.

Perceptron's technician visual inspection products are distributed exclusively, through Snap-on Tool Company.
