Reels and cameras

RIDGID® reels and cameras deliver a crisp in-pipe image that is always upright. Compact, lightweight and user-friendly, these reels and cameras have a cable that is stiff enough to push out long runs, yet flexible enough to make tight turns. With Wi-Fi connectivity, these reels and cameras are compatible with all RIDGID monitors as well as smartphones and tablets.

Selecting the correct system is a combination of understanding the pipe diameter and the distance that needs to be surveyed.  The camera head must be able to fit the pipe size, but also to sufficiently illuminate the pipe interior.  Stiffer cables will allow the camera to be pushed further but are limited if there is a need to negotiate bends.

For a quick guide to RIDGID’s range, see the below image.  More information on each system is available below.
