Sonde Locating with a SeeSnake Inspection System

This article describes how to locate a point of interest in the pipe with the integrated sonde on a SeeSnake® camera reel.

The sonde is located in the spring and is assembled between the end of the push cable and the camera. The sonde transmits a locatable 512 Hz signal that can be detected by receivers such as the RIDGID® SeekTech® SR-20, SR-24, SR-60, NaviTrack® II, or Scout.


  1. Push the camera to the point of interest you want to locate.
  2.  On the SeeSnake monitor, press the sonde key to enable the sonde.
  3. Set the receiver to sonde mode, or 512 Hz.
  4. Locate the sonde.
