With products for everything from pipe, drain cleaning, and inspection equipment to plumbing and utility line locators, Ridgid provides top-of-the-line, innovative tools for professionals. Ridgid has now released a new inspection tool for plumbing that is a “flexible, bring-your-own-screen inspection solution” — the Ridgid CSx Via. This tool allows you to use any Android, iOS, or Windows device to stream inspection videos and capture vibrant still images. While using the HQx Live app, you can remotely control the camera features including TruSense, distance counter, sonde and more.

What Does the CSx Via Have to Offer?

The CSx Via monitor is one of Ridgid’s most versatile and user-friendly models for pipe inspections. It can be used across multiple reels and allows you to connect your preferred device to easily save, share, or upload inspection images. All SeeSnake camera devices are equipped with TruSense technology which includes a high dynamic range (HDR) image sensor that allows users to see far down a pipe as well as directly in front of the camera. It also has a wide dynamic range which balances the light and dark parts of the image for a clearer and more detailed image.

The CSx Via can be easily docked onto your pipe inspection device to display high-definition photo and videos through the free HQx Live app. Simply turn on the monitor’s built-in WiFi to connect to your mobile device and start streaming your inspection footage. Photos, videos, and Phototalk media can be displayed on your device in real time. Additionally, you can view, edit, and share inspection media instantly using cellular data to increase efficiency on the jobsite.

“The ability to turn any personal device into a monitor with a tool that fits in your hand is not only convenient, but also offers flexibility and convenience for inspection pros with multiple reels to custom configure their tools for various jobsite situations. User fatigue is also reduced, and jobsite efficiencies enhanced as there is less weight to carry to and from a jobsite.”
