The Aries Industries LETS (Lateral Evaluation Television System)

Aries Industries

LETS (Lateral Evaluation Television System) is an adaptable, reliable system that allows simultaneous inspection of laterals (up to 150 feet) and mainlines (up to 1,000 feet), with a fast, efficient lateral camera launch. LETS system’s low friction drive mechanism virtually eliminates cable wear, and the automated self-capturing push cable retrieval gets you out of tough situations easily, increasing reliability and product life. To make operation even more trouble-free, the LETS system easily adapts or retrofits to other systems. LETS boasts two push cameras – a self-leveling mini camera or a pan/tilt camera. 800.234.7205, www.ariesindustries.com
