Ridge Tool Adds New SeeSnake® Compact
To Family of RIDGID/Kollmann® SeeSnake Products
ELYRIA, OH – June 2001 – Ridge Tool Company has recently introduced its SeeSnake® Compact video pipe inspection system to its family of RIDGID/Kollmann® SeeSnake products. The affordable new system is small and lightweight for easy transporting and storage. The system allows the user to quickly and easily view inside drain lines and other types of piping in order to determine the exact cause and location of problems.
The durable SeeSnake Compact consists of a black-and-white camera with a unique lighting system that, along with a push-rod assembly, navigates through 1-1/2" to 4" lines with up to 100' of push cable. The small, 1.2" camera head, which features 24 infrared LEDs for superior illumination, easily maneuvers through right angles and P-traps. An integrated in-line transmitter is standard equipment and allows for easy location with any 512 Hz locator.
A scratch-resistant, debris-shedding, sapphire flush mount lens, stainless steel camera head and a unique, tapered stainless steel spring assembly, assure the system’s durability and maneuverability. Stress-free electrical connectors also assure reliability.
To display the cause of the problem, the SeeSnake Compact comes equipped with a high resolution, 5" black-and-white monitor featuring 380 lines of resolution, that can be adjusted to six different angles. The monitor is encased in a durable, splash-resistant, self-contained case with a built-in shade and a spring-loaded, multi-position kickstand for optimum viewing. A flip switch allows the user to rotate the image 180 on the screen. For recording, a video out jack allows for easy connection to a VCR. A battery port for use with a 14.4 volt battery is available.
A debris capturing, enclosed rotating drum system helps to keep job sites clean. The monitor is docked to the drum reel for easy storage and transport, but can be detached on the job site for extra versatility and flexibility. A rust-resistant roll cage and skid-resistant feet provide added stability.
