Ideal for industry professionals and newcomers alike, the T1 640Hz Transmitter ensures an effective and precise locating experience.
Key Transmitter Attributes
Frequency and Power Control
On/Off/Frequency Selector: The transmitter comes with LEDs that display your chosen frequency. A simple press turns the device on and defaults to the lowest frequency. Subsequent presses toggle through the mid and high-frequency ranges, and a fourth press turns the equipment off.
Power Selector: This control allows users to select between high and low power levels, offering flexibility for different locating requirements.
Accessory Socket: The T1 640Hz Transmitter features a special socket for connecting cables or additional accessories such as Signal Clamps, Direct Connection leads, or Live Plug Connectors. Note that when an accessory is connected, the induction mode is automatically disabled.
Battery Access Panel: Conveniently replace batteries when no audio signal is detected, ensuring constant functionality.
Arrows: These are designed to guide users on the correct alignment above the pipe or cable when employing Induction mode.
Direct Connection Capabilities
Direct Connection is a method for applying the T1 640Hz Transmitter’s locating signal specifically to a cable or pipe. Connections are possible to any metallic segment of the utility. The steps involve:
- Connecting the Direct Connection lead to the accessory socket.
- Attaching the red lead to your targeted utility and the black lead to an earth stake.
- Activating the T1 and listening for an audible tone shift to confirm a good connection.
Active Cable Location with T1
The T1 640Hz Transmitter is capable of actively introducing a locating signal onto cables or metallic pipes. Utilize this signal with the locator in Active Line mode for precise detection.
Induction Mode Explained
The T1 features an integrated aerial that inductively places a signal onto a line situated directly below the unit. This method is effective up to depths of 2 meters. It's worth mentioning that induction is indiscriminate and will introduce a signal to all conductive materials within its proximity.
Procedure for Induction Mode
- Position the T1 640Hz Transmitter over the suspected location of the underground utility.
- Adjust your locator’s sensitivity setting to 100%.
- Begin the locating process at a distance of at least 10 meters from the transmitter.
Business Use Cases
The T1 640/65Hz Transmitter can be an asset to a range of industries. Here's a snapshot of its potential applications:
- Construction: Identify utilities prior to any excavation or construction work.
- Telecommunications: Pinpoint hidden telecom cables safely.
- Oil and Gas: Locating pipelines before drilling commences.
- Utilities Management: Identifying water lines, sewage, and other public utilities.
