Vivax vLoc High Power Transmitters

£972.90 Ex. VAT

 

The 5-Watt broadband transmitter has selectable induction and direct connection frequencies from 98Hz to 200kHz, SD mode (Signal Direction), fault find and true resistance measurement up to 1 Mohm. The two inch by one-inch dot matrix display with LED backlight shows output current, connection type, volts, resistance, frequency, volume, battery condition and high voltage warnings.

The optional Transmitter Link (Tx-Link) installed in the receiver and transmitter, remote operation of the transmitter from the receiver is possible. The range of the radio transmitter link depends on having a clear “line of sight” between receiver and transmitter but is typically around 300m /985 ft. Signal Direction (SD) mode feature verifies if the line being located is the target that the transmitter is connected to.

When a transmitter is connected to a target line, the signal travels along it and finds the easiest way to travel back, usually via the ground and ground stake. However, very often the signal will travel back along adjacent utilities which offer an easier route. As a result, there can be multiple signals radiating from utilities in the area making it difficult to identify the target line. These return signals are typically traveling in the opposite direction than the applied signal. The Signal Direction feature identifies which direction the signal is flowing and hence the target line.

Packaged in a lightweight, rugged, ergonomic IP54 housing, the transmitter provides consistent current output in direct connect, clamp or induction modes and protection against inadvertent connection to incoming voltages up to 240V.

10-Watt SIS Transmitter

The Loc3-10SiSTx 10-Watt Transmitter has all the features of the Loc3-10Tx plus it provides full support for the new Signal Select and Distortion Alert line ID features available when used with the vLoc3-5000 receiver.

 

The Loc-150Tx, 150-Watt DM Transmitter is used primarily with the Defect Mapper (DM) Receiver, however it is also useful for those needing a low frequency, high output transmitter.

Typically, the Loc-150Tx, transmitter (DM transmitter) is used to apply a signal current to the anode bed. The pipeline returns the signal via coating faults back to the transmitter. The Loc-150Tx transmitter is designed to be powered from CP (Cathodic Protection) stations, AC or external batteries, eliminating the need for internal batteries. This transmitter has a direct connection mode to apply the locate frequency onto the conductor.  There is no clamp or induction mode.

The Loc-150Tx transmitter has selectable direct connection frequencies from 98Hz to 512Hz (640 Hz in Europe). The two inch by one-inch dot matrix display with LED backlight shows output current, volts, frequency, and over voltage/over temperature/over power warnings.

Two rotary/push control knobs provide access to frequency selection, output level, menu information and active/standby modes. This transmitter is supplied with a direct connection lead, DC input lead and AC mains lead.
