SeeSnake microREEL APX and CSx Via Kit Support

The RIDGID® SeeSnake® microREEL APX™ and CSx Via™ kit delivers an easy-to-use inspection system that is as compact as it is capable.

The microREEL APX is a TruSense® technology-enabled camera reel with a flexible push cable and a 25 mm [1 in] camera head, making it useful for navigating turns in a variety of pipes. The CSx Via is a “bring-your-own-screen” solution for plumbing inspections that easily installs onto the microREEL APX.

Once the CSx Via is installed, connect it to your mobile device’s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and you’re ready to perform inspections using the HQx Live app for iOS™ and Android™ devices or HQ Software for Windows®. Both tools allow you to stream, capture, and share inspection media right from your mobile device.
