Jameson Transmitter, Part 17-500T, Transmitter Only. This device may detect buried power cables, CATV cables, gas and water pipes, sewer lines, telephone cables, fiber optic cables with sheath, sondes and inspection camera transmitters.
The Transmitter emits a signal. The Receiver detects the signal. You can locate the relative position of the buried utility, sonde or camera by following the tracing signal.
Part 17-500T Transmitter Only TX OUTPUT JACK The Red/Black Cord Coupler and Flexicoupler connects here to create a circuit on the buried utility.
- FREQUENCY SELECTOR The 82 kHz reading indicates that the 82 kHz frequency is in use. The 82 kHz frequency is capable of locating cables and pipes and is capable of jumping disconnected shield bonds or grounds. The 82 kHz may bleed off onto non-target conductors within close proximity. The 512 Hz reading indicates the 512 Hz frequency is in use. The 512 Hz frequency can travel greater distances, but may generate a weaker signal. The Wand Receiver is only capable of detecting either 82 kHz or 512 Hz.
- LOAD INDICATOR The Load Rate Indicator symbol flashes to indicate signal transmission and the output circuit impedance. When the indicator blinks 4 times per second, it is indicating a nearly short circuit. When the indicator blinks 1 time every 3 seconds, it is indicating a nearly open circuit.
- OUTPUT SIGNAL LEVEL CONTROL The OUTPUT SIGNAL LEVEL CONTROL adjusts the power output from the Transmitter. The three selections include: LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH.
