RIDGID® Introduces Industry-First Digital Self-Leveling Reel

April 4, 2023

ELYRIA, OHIO –  April 4, 2023 – RIDGID®, a part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, introduces the first reel of its kind to provide digital self-leveling with no moving parts, the SeeSnake® Mini Pro Inspection Camera with TruSense® Technology. It is the latest reel in the RIDGID portfolio of inspection and drain cleaning tools, each designed to complement each other and provide the strongest breadth and depth of products to help meet the toughest jobsite challenges.


The small, yet rugged Mini Pro is designed to inspect up to 200 feet of 1.5- to 8-inch pipe with its mid-flex push cable that can navigate hard 90-degree bends. Its innovative 25 mm digital self-leveling camera always keeps the in-pipe image upright and is shorter than the traditional 25 mm camera head.


“The industry-first digital capabilities of the Mini Pro take pipe inspection to a whole new level,” said Kelsey David, product manager, RIDGID for Emerson. “The smooth in-pipe images that remain upright at all times combine with enhanced in-pipe location and positioning capabilities to increase user confidence and improve pipe inspection efficiency.”


TruSense establishes a two-way datalink between the camera head and a TruSense enabled monitor. With TruSense, advanced sensors on the camera head convey valuable information about the in-pipe environment, including the high-dynamic range (HDR) image sensor that offers bright, clear in-pipe imaging in difficult lighting conditions. The TiltSense Inclinometer measures the camera's angle and displays the degree of tilt on the monitor – giving professionals a useful indicator of the pitch of the camera in-pipe. Digital zoom/pan provides the ability to focus on a single point of interest for a better understanding and view of what’s happening in-pipe.


The Mini Pro is backed by the manufacturer’s RIDGID Full Lifetime Warranty.
