New Ridgid SeeSnake CS12X Is Here!

Work smarter, not harder on the job site with the new RIDGID SeeSnake CS12x Digital Recording Monitor 57278 ($3,950). It delivers a large screen for easy viewing, dual battery functionality for maximum runtime and Wi-Fi connectivity for simple footage sharing.

This latest generation digital recording monitor streams and records inspections to any iOS or Android mobile or tablet device with the free HQx Live companion app. The app can be downloaded through the iOS App Store and Google Play for immediate sharing of inspection footage. The CS12x also allows saving images to a USB drive for simple post-inspection transfer to clients and team members.

It features a more powerful processor for quick start-up and enhanced performance. A 12.1 inch, high contrast display provides crisp, clear images for easy viewing of footage in daylight. “Contractors want to show findings to clients as their inspections happen and RIDGID is excited to now offer that capability not only in the CS12x, but also in all of our monitoring products,” said James McGregor, RIDGID Global Marketing Director. “The CS12x is the last of our monitors to be upgraded to include Wi-Fi.”. The large 12.1″ display includes a resolution of 1024 x 768, which a big upgrade from previous models. Also captures images and videos on a simple USB drive.

Large work space for your tablet (not included) to quickly go back and forth if you want to get into the device. Not necessary to have the tablet out out at any point during the inspection or after however it can be handy to have it available if needed. This unit provides a lot of flexibility to use depending on the job and your preferences. We would guess this will be the most popular option for the Ridgid SeeSnake monitors pretty quickly, if they can keep them in-stock at least.
