RIDGID® SeeSnake® APX Series

About the APX family of reels 

APX reels feature TruSense camera heads with a TiltSense™ inclinometer in addition to an HDR image sensor. The TiltSense inclinometer measures the camera’s degree of tilt and displays it on a CSx series device, giving you a useful indicator of the camera’s angle as it lays inside the pipe. When connected to any SeeSnake CSx series device, Auto Image Flip digitally rotates the camera’s image in 90° increments so that the view is always upright. Kickstand compatibility allows for more options when placing APX reels on the job site as well providing protection for the CSx Via while in use with an APX reel.

Introducing the microReel APX  

The RIDGID® SeeSnake® microReel™ APX is a compact, portable diagnostic inspection camera in the SeeSnake family of inspection systems. Building on the success of the original microReel, the microReel APX offers enhanced viewing with a high dynamic range image sensor and the ability to digitally rotate the camera’s feed. The kickstand can be used to tilt the microReel back, or to lie it flat on its back for optimum stability.

The microReel APX comes in two models: the L100CS and the L100CA. Both models include a high dynamic range (HDR) image sensor on the camera. The HDR sensor expands the camera’s dynamic range, allowing a greater ratio of bright and dark areas to be displayed in the same image at the same time without reducing visibility.

About the L100CS

The microReel APX L100CS model is designed to work with all SeeSnake CS and CSx monitors, as well as the CSx Via device for mobile inspections. The L100CS comes with TruSense® technology, which includes the TiltSense™ inclinometer in addition to the HDR image sensor. The TiltSense inclinometer measures the camera’s degree of tilt and displays it on a CSx series device, giving you a useful indicator of the camera’s angle as it lays inside the pipe. Additionally, when connected to any SeeSnake CSx series device, Auto Image Flip digitally rotates the camera’s image in 90° increments so that the view is always upright.

About the L100CA

The microReel APX L100CA model is designed to work with the RIDGID micro CA-350 handheld monitor with the in-cluded CA-350 display cradle and adapt-er accessory. The keypad lets you overlay the cable distance as well as job and cus-tomer information, and can also control the camera brightness and enable/disable the sonde.
