Drain Cleaning Cameras Aim To Boost Cleaning Process


Experience the first true data-enabled plumbing diagnostic cameras with the new line of RIDGID SeeSnake cameras powered by TruSense technology. TruSense establishes a two-way datalink path between the camera head and a connected RIDGID SeeSnake CSx series WiFi enabled monitor. With TruSense, advanced sensors on the camera head convey valuable information about the in- pipe environment.

SeeSnake cameras with TruSense technology include a high dynamic range (HDR) image sensor that takes the next leap forward in diagnostic imaging. A common challenge faced by diagnostic professionals is being able to see far down the pipe as well as the image just in front of the camera's lights. An HDR image 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. This means fewer blown-out areas and sections of the pipe that are too dark to see, offering superior clarity and detail. TiltSense is an on-camera inclinometer that is included on SeeSnake cameras with TruSense technology.

The inclinometer measures the camera's angle. When connected to a SeeSnake CSx series monitor, the camera can convey the camera's degree of tilt on the monitor display – giving you a useful indicator of the pitch of the camera in-pipe.

“RIDGID SeeSnake cameras are trusted for having the clearest in-pipe picture along with features that help our customers work smarter and faster,” said Tim Dunphy, RIDGID Marketing Director of Underground Technologies. “With TruSense technology, HDR sensors and TiltSense deliver the image quality and information contractors need to see.”

SeeSnake cameras with TruSense technology are available in self-leveling models, which keeps the image upright, and non self-leveling models. All RIDGID SeeSnake cameras come with the RIDGID Full Lifetime Warranty.
