Milwaukee introduces modular pipeline inspection system for sewers

Milwaukee Tool has introduced the industry's clearest image and easiest inspections with the new modular pipeline inspection system. This pipeline inspection system features 1080p HD, self-leveling camera heads so service technicians can zoom up to 4X and pan, making it possible to see more in drain lines than ever before. 

"At Milwaukee we are dedicated to providing unique solutions that eliminate the frustrations service plumbers face every day. In 2016, we committed to investing the technology and resources necessary to create a line of cordless drain cleaning solutions that eliminate the mess and improve transportation on and off the job. Today, we are excited to unveil a sewer inspection solution that sets a new standard for image quality and simplifies the process of capturing, creating, and sharing findings," said Morgan Sokany, Senior Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. 

The modular pipeline inspection system is built around the M18 500GB Control Hub, compatible with either the 120' or 200' pipeline inspection reels: 

M18 500GB control hub

    • Powered by an M18 REDLITHIUM battery, the M18 500GB Control Hub powers the reels, stores recordings, and easily swaps between reel sizes. With up to 200' of wireless connectivity to the M18 wireless monitor or a mobile device, technicians have the freedom to take the results right to their customers and coworkers.  
    • For improved sewer line and camera head locating, the M18 500GB control hub is equipped with a built-in transmitter that energizes the entire length of the push cable.  
    • Integrated ONE-KEY technology provides the ability to track the tool's location, manage it in inventory, and lock out the tool if lost or stolen.

120' pipeline inspection reel

The 120' pipeline inspection reel features a 25mm, 1080p HD self-leveling camera head and a 10mm push cable that is built to maximize maneuverability in smaller lines and withstand the harsh conditions when navigating through cast iron, clay, and PVC pipes. 

Technicians can also digitally zoom and pan up to 4X, making it easier to focus in on the point of interest. Its compact design, removeable backpack straps, and monitor mount allow for hands-free carrying when accessing roofs and climbing stairs. For better visibility, navigation, and protection, the reel comes with small and medium-sized skids and a camera sleeve.

200' pipeline inspection reel

The 200' pipeline inspection reel features a 34mm, 1080p HD self-leveling camera head and a 12mm push cable that is built to withstand the harsh conditions encountered when navigating through cast iron, clay, and PVC pipes. Technicians can also digitally zoom and pan up to 4X, making it easier to focus in on the point of interest. For better visibility, navigation, and protection, the reel comes with small and medium-sized skids and a camera sleeve.

Viewing options

For viewing, recording, editing, and sharing, technicians can choose between the M18 wireless monitor for simplicity and maximum durability, or a mobile device with the Milwaukee pipeline inspection app for clearer image and faster sharing. 

With a wireless range up to 200', technicians can take the results where they need to.  Equipped with an 800 x 600 8" daylight readable screen, the M18 wireless monitor provides a clear, sharp image whether on a roof or in a basement. For better focus on the point of interest, technicians can zoom and pan up to 4X. This monitor is also equipped with ONE-KEY technology, providing the ability to track the tool's location, manage it in inventory, and lock out the tool if lost or stolen.
