For many professionals, seeing into hard-to-reach areas can present some tricky challenges. For instance, issues in tight spaces, like cracked heat exchangers, blocked dryer vents, or leaky pipes behind walls, can be difficult to diagnose, especially when you can’t “see” the problem. Now, a new member of the RIDGID® hand-held inspection camera family offers a simplified view-only addition that adds sight for professionals: the RIDGID micro CA-25 hand-held inspection camera.
The micro CA-25 offers a rugged 17 mm (¾”) aluminum camera head and one-handed pistol grip designed for multi-purpose visual detection, diagnosis and confirmation in hard-to-reach areas. The camera, permanently attached to a fixed three-foot cable, is easily capable of sliding into tight spaces such as behind walls and ceilings and inside mechanical devices and plumbing fixtures, making it an excellent choice for a variety of jobs.
Users will quickly get a visual handle on issues as images are transmitted to the device’s crisp 2.4” color LCD (480 x 234 resolution) display screen that provides a 180-degree digital rotation and incorporates four adjustable, ultra-bright LEDs in the camera head.
Need a bigger picture? The lightweight device (1.3 pounds), powered with four AA batteries, comes with a television output and three-foot RCA cable for video transmission to a larger screen like a television or computer monitor. The product also comes with a hook, magnet and mirror – convenient accessories to make the job even easier.
“The hand-held inspection camera is now a standard tool for most industry professionals, even if it’s only on-hand for that one nightmare job,” said Sarah Golish, Director of Inspection Systems and Diagnostics for RIDGID. “The micro CA-25 is the perfect camera for the professional who doesn’t have a heavy need for an inspection camera, but still requires a simple solution to confidently detect and diagnose problems.”
The micro CA-25 is available for purchase at any local RIDGID distributor. More information, including product videos on the RIDGID line of hand-held diagnostic tools, can be found at www.ridgid.com/micro/.
