Easily Use this High Frequency Transmitter Assembly

The transmitter within Greenlee's 501 assembly is a high-frequency application that produces an effective range up to 4,000 feet (1,219 meter), 7 feet (2 meter) underground. Manufactured from powder coated aluminum, the transmitter is contained within an aluminum case. It features an on/off control knob and an LED light that indicates the overall battery condition. Greenlee has designed the transmitter to have three different methods of connection. You can either connect it directly onto one end of the cable, the inductive coupler or the inductive antenna. Once connected, this 501 transmitter will produce an RF signal. This signal is modulated with a tone of about 1000 Hz to provide a perfectly efficient use. The transmitter's output level is fully adjustable using the on/off knob for increased accuracy. Simply turn the knob off when done or use the automatic shut-off feature after 1.5 hours of no use. Greenlee has designed the transmitter to have three different methods of connection. You can either connect it directly onto one end of the cable, the inductive coupler or the inductive antenna. The inductive antenna is assembled within the case housing and is typically used when there is no accessible way to make a direct connection. It lets the transmitter be placed on the ground over where the wire path or piping is. It then applies a tracking tone by radiating a signal from the ground surface onto the conductor and sends it back to the receiver.

Get Accurate Readings Both Audibly and Visually with a Unique Receiver Assembly

Just like the transmitter, Greenlee manufactures the receiver from powder coated aluminum that is protected within an aluminum housing. It's also battery powered that will automatically shut itself off after an hour and a half without any use. Lightweight in its overall design, Greenlee's 501 receiver is easily held and manuevered while in use. Mounted on a 32 inch handle with an antenna to help detect the tone over the cable, this hand-held receiver will allow you to trace and follow the path of the cable. It is designed to produce not just audible, but also visual indications of the signal strength being transmitted. The sensitivity of the receiver is totally adjustable to pinpoint a more accurate reading. The receiver also comes with a additional features to help get a more clear, accurate reading. It has a speaker to help listen to the signal tone, a headset jack, an on/off volume control knob and a meter to let you visibly read & monitor the signal strength levels.

You Will Have Everything You Need to Trace and Locate Piping and Cabling

Acting as one of the methods of connections to the transmitter, the inductive coupler included with this Tracker II Locator Assembly is created to induce a tracing tone on a cable, wire or pipe without having to establish any metallic contact or removing bonds. It's typically used when testing on active lines or when getting a line isolated is just not possible. It simply clamps around the object and then sends a tone to the transmitter to let you the location of the active or dead cables. With its plastic & iron construction, the coupler can accommodate cable up to 3 inches. When you pick up their 501 Tracker II Buried Line Locator, Greenlee will also include additional needed accessories including a pair of leads that are 8 feet long and come with plugs & clips to help connect the transmitter to the cable or pipe. Everything comes within a carrying case made out of vacuum formed polyethylene. It helps make strong and transporting the whole Tracker II assembly much easier while keeping it protective. There's also a simple, quick reference operation guide within the inside of the lid.
