SeeSnake microREEL APX Support

The RIDGID® SeeSnake® microREEL™ APX™ is a portable and customizable diagnostic camera reel with enhanced imaging fea­tures.

The stiffer push cable makes the microREEL ideal for inspecting longer runs in pipes that are 38 mm to 102 mm [1.5 in to 4 in]. The included kickstand lets you set up the mi­croREEL in the optimal position for stability while pushing or retrieving the cable.

The microREEL features a built-in sonde in the camera head that can be located with a utility locating receiver to find points of inter­est in the pipe.

The microREEL is compatible with all SeeSnake monitors. The CSx Via™ mobile inspection device easily connects to the mi­croREEL APX via the slip-ring cavity.

APX Features


The microREEL APX is equipped with an auto image flip feature. When connected to a SeeSnake CSx series device, the mi­croREEL 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.

TruSense Technology Description


The microREEL APX includes a TruSense technology-enabled camera. TruSense technology establishes a two-way commu­nication link between the camera head and a connected CSx series TruSense-capable mon­itor. TruSense features advanced on-cam­era sensors that convey valuable informa­tion about the in-pipe environment.
