Flip it up and the aluminum screen cover acts as a sun shield; flip it down and it serves as a heavy-duty protective cover. Available on Ace and Ace 2 pipeline inspection camera systems from Electric Eel Manufacturing Company, the cover mounts to the 5.4-inch LCD monitor and uses a screw knob to lock in place for transit and storage or in an upright position to shield from the sun. The screen cover is standard on Ace and Ace 2 models and can be retrofitted on existing models.

“You can pound on the monitor with your knuckles and it won’t break, but there was this perception that it could be damaged,” says Mark Speranza, vice president of sales for Electric Eel. “Having the shield eliminates the whole issue. Plus it helps view the monitor in the sun. Pretty simple, but it does add a couple of benefits for the user.”

The Ace and Ace 2 inspection systems have a stainless-steel-housed 1.68-inch-diameter color camera with sapphire lens, 20 LED light ring and high-resolution CCD element (self-leveling color camera available).

Other system features include 200 feet of Kevlar braided, 1/2-inch-diameter push rod, 512 Hz sonde, video output jack, flexible camera spring to navigate 3-inch P-traps, portable powder-coated steel frame, locking reel brake and centering skid. The Ace 2 also has one-touch USB recording, on-screen footage counter and wheel kit for easy transportation. 800/833-1212; www.electriceel.com.
