Installing the TruSense™ Counter

Read this article to learn how to retrofit the TruSense cable counter to RIDGID® SeeSnake® Standard and Mini camera reels.

Items Needed

For magnet plate installation*

  • Black magnet plate (1x)
  • Nickel-plated magnets (2x)
  • Black plastite self-tapping screws (4x)

For counter installation

  • TruSense counter with circuit board (1x)
  • Rubber gasket (1x)
  • Foam insert (1x)
  • Silver #4-40 screws (4x)

*Camera reels with the CountPlus cable counter have the magnet plate already installed.

Installing the Magnet Plate

Before beginning, ensure that the reel is not plugged into a SeeSnake monitor.

If the camera reel has the CountPlus cable counter already installed, skip to Installing the Counter.

  1. Slide the magnet plate over the reel’s axle hub so that the curved section of the plate fits exactly over the bushing. The magnets on the plate should be facing toward the reel.

  1. Use the four black self-tapping screws to secure the plate to the drum, screwing directly into the plastic surface. Notice: Do not over-tighten the screws as it may strip the threads.

  2. Start a screw through each of the four corners on the counter and gasket.
  3. Plug the red connector into the counter, making sure the ridge faces the white lip inside the container and that the pins align with the plug.
  4. Align the screws with the receptacles below the axle bushing. Attach the counter to the reel by tightening the screws.
