    Re: Micro Explorer question

    Thanks CPW,
    I ask because i have a guy thats getting desperate with a indoor swimming pool line. I haven't checked it out yet but I'm pretty sure my camera head is too big.

    Am I right in thinking, even in a pipe an Explorer would not make 30' due to is lack of flexibility?

      Not if your navigating turns. Anyone have an experience pushing the micro cable out past 10 ft?

        Not only that, but those are water fittings out there, not sweeps. Makes it even worse.

        I can get a Mini B/W through one 2" PVC water 90 if it's not too far in, but no more than that...and it's really scary trying to get it back...

          That was my biggest concern, getting it back.
          I'm going to check it out at some point but the guy knows not to expect much due to the size of pipe and turns. The guy suspects it my be some sort of flex pipe underground (1970's), that may help or hinder. I would think that would make it an even smaller I.D.. Believe it or not, we don't have many pools here in Maine

            The newer Extensions will work with both the microEXPLORER and the SeeSnake micro. The newer extensions have 9 wires inside to carry all the additional information and controls of the EXPLOERER. The original micro only uses 5 of the wires so the old extension only had those 5 pins live in the extensions. So heres a little chart.


            ------------------------Old Extension (5 wire) ----New Extensions (9 wire)
            SeeSnake micro ------------Yes -------------------------- Yes
            micro EXPLORER ------------No ---------------------------Yes
            With my extention installed my Explorer says this when I turn it on:
            ERROR [2] When entering playback mode

            There are no number on my extension to identify it other than 7A at the connector end. So do the old and new extensions look identical? Meaning, all have 9 pins but only 5 are live on the old version?

            Mine is a 9 pin. but doesn't work in the Explorer. The extension does however work with the imaging head from my Micro but without self leveling feature.

            When can I start plugging stuff into my expansion ports?

              Your extension is a 5 wire. The EXPLORER head needs all 9 wires thats why you get an error with that head using the old extensions.
