RIDGID®, part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, recently introduced the SeeSnake® microReel™ APX™ to optimise inspections. Engineered with a lightweight, compact profile for easy portability, the microReel APX features bright LED lights with high colour accuracy and auto-flip imagery delivering crisp, detailed images and ensuring upright viewing angles in a variety of pipe conditions. Paired with TruSense® technology, this tool delivers what is claimed to be the industry’s best in-pipe image.
The microReel APX is the most recent camera reel from RIDGID to offer TruSense technology to help plumbers better pinpoint problem areas in-pipe. It also comes with a built-in kickstand for in-field versatility with multiple configurations for optimal operation.
TruSense establishes a two-way datalink between the camera head and a connected RIDGID SeeSnake.
With TruSense, advanced sensors on the camera head convey information about the in-pipe environment, while the HDR image sensor expands the camera’s dynamic range, allowing a greater ratio of bright and dark areas to be displayed at the same time without reducing visibility. This delivers superior clarity and detail with fewer blown-out areas and sections of the pipe that are too dark to see. TiltSense™ measures the camera’s angle and, when connected to a SeeSnake series monitor, the camera can convey the camera’s degree of tilt on the monitor, giving professionals a useful indicator of the pitch of the camera in-pipe.
“The RIDGID SeeSnake microReel APX is our latest and most portable camera reel to offer TruSense technology, giving plumbers the enhanced data capabilities they need to diagnose issues.” said Laura Wolverton, marketing director, underground technologies, RIDGID for Emerson. “RIDGID has been a leader in diagnostics for over 25 years, making camera reels built to last no matter how harsh the jobsite environment.” All RIDGID SeeSnake reels come with the RIDGID Full Lifetime Warranty
