Product Description

The Greenlee 501 Tracker II is designed to locate the path and depth of buried cable, service wires, metallic pipe or conduit and locate the end of a cut cable.

The Greenlee 501 consists of:

  • 501T Transmitter
  • 501R Receiver
  • 500CA Carrying Case with Inductive Antenna
  • CS16 Cord Set
  • IC-1 Inductive Coupler


The transmitter is housed in an aluminum case and is powered by eight (8) 1.5V AA batteries. The transmitter has an on/off control knob which is also used to adjust the output level and a light emitting diode (LED) indicating the battery condition. In addition, the transmitter has an automatic shut-off feature after 1.5 hours of non-use. Effective range is greater than 4000 feet in length and for depths up to 7 feet.


The receiver is encased in an aluminum housing, mounted with an antenna and is powered by one (1) 9V battery. Like the transmitter, the receiver will automatically shut itself off after 1.5 hours of non-use. The receiver has a speaker for listening to the signal, a meter for monitoring the signal level, a headset jack, an on/off volume control knob and an antenna for detecting the tone over the cable.

Carrying Case with Inductive Antenna

The case is used for storing and transporting the Tracker II system and is constructed of vacuum formed polyethylene. The case also includes an easy, quick reference operation guide on the inside of the lid.

Cord Set

An 8 foot pair of leads with plugs and clips is included for connecting the transmitter to the cable or pipe.

Inductive Coupler

The inductive coupler induces a tracing tone on a cable, wire or pipe by clamping
around it.
