ELYRIA, OHIO November 2009 RIDGID® introduces the SeeSnake® digital adaptor, an accessory for the microEXPLORER digital inspection camera that will allow users to add the ability to digitally record to existing SeeSnake camera inspection systems.
The new adaptor connected with the microEXPLORER digital inspection camera can be used on any video-out enabled monitor, including SeeSnake VHS or DVD monitors. This allows digital recording capabilities and a secondary playback screen to easily be added to an existing camera system.
The easy-to-use digital adaptor and microEXPLORER digital inspection camera are the simplest and fastest way for users to add digital recording to their existing SeeSnake drain inspection system. It allows users a simple way to stay competitive by being able to bid on projects requiring digital outputs, without having to purchase a whole new system, said Sarah Golish, director, inspection systems and networks, RIDGID.
The RIDGID microEXPLORER digital inspection camera is a handheld video inspection system with a 3.5-inch color LCD screen that allows users to take digital quality JPEG images and record AVI video onto a secure digital (SD) card. Additionally, an integrated mini USB port is available to transfer the recorded information onto a computer where it can be saved, emailed or posted online for customers or repair technicians.
The high-resolution anodized aluminum camera head, with a water- and scratch-resistant sapphire lens and four fully adjustable LEDs to adjust lighting for any job, sits at the tip of a flexible 3-foot cable that is reinforced with a waterproof vinyl jacket. The camera can focus on a specific area using the 3X digital zoom and/or pan functions on the easy-to-use, menu-driven graphic user interface controlled by buttons located on top of the comfort-grip handle.
The microEXPLORER digital inspection camera is the first tool from RIDGID that includes digital self-leveling technology. The camera electronically knows what point is up and automatically adjusts the view so users see the upright image without having to move the camera head or tool.
