SeeSnake APX

APX Features

SeeSnake APX camera reels offer enhanced viewing with a TruSense® camera and an auto image flip feature.

When connected to a SeeSnake CSx series device, the APX flips your onscreen image as the camera rotates through the pipe, ensuring your image remains oriented upright. An on-screen icon indicates the vertical orientation with respect to the image.

Enabling APX Features

To enable APX features, your CSx TruSense® capable device will need to be running the latest software. View the instructions below for updating your monitor using the SeeSnake HQx Live app, SeeSnake HQ software, or manually via USB drive.
