When a plumber looks for an inspection camera, ease of use is often the most important selling point. Electric Eel recently introduced the eCAM Ace 100-Micro pipeline inspection camera system specifically to make plumbers’ and drain cleaners’ jobs easier.

The eCAM Ace 100-Micro doesn’t require the use of a dedicated monitor. Instead, the plumber can use a device he likely already has with him, which not only saves time, but decreases the amount of tools he needs on the job site. According to Mark Speranza, vice president of sales for Electric Eel, that feature alone is great for plumbers.

“The Ace 100-Micro allows the operator to use his own mobile device, such as a phone or tablet, as a monitor,” he says. “That makes using it quick, easy and convenient.”

The compact eCAM Ace 100-Micro delivers everything a plumber or drain cleaner would need to perform quick inspections in pipes ranging from 1 1/2 to 3 inches in diameter and up to 100 feet in length. Weighing in at only 15 pounds makes this camera ideal for easy portability.

“We designed the Ace 100-Micro as an affordable addition to a mainline inspection system, providing the user the ability to inspect smaller lines,” Speranza says. “The unit is extremely portable, which makes it ideal for inspecting downspouts and interior lines.”

The system comes equipped with a 512 Hz transmitter and a resettable on-screen footage counter. In addition to the ability to stream video directly to any mobile device, audio and video can be recorded to the mobile device as well. The files are saved on the device and can then be transferred via email or text or accessible via the cloud. It offers a 0.271-inch pushrod with a 1-inch-diameter camera head. Footage is displayed in feet and meters and is easily resettable. According to Speranza, its compact (10 inches wide by 12 inches long and 16 inches high), lightweight size and portability make this camera user-friendly for contractors, plumbers and homeowners alike. 

“Feedback thus far has been extremely positive,” he says. “The reaction has been very good regarding the Wi-Fi connectivity and the ability to use a personal device as a monitor.” 800-833-1212;
