Ditch Witch 830R/T High Frequency Locating System

The 830R/T (receiver/transmitter) conductor locating system is designed to provide best performance at a high active frequency. One advantage of a high-frequency locator is its ability to trace poor conductors, such as ungrounded tracer wire, and locate short lengths of utility infrastructure better than low-frequency units.

Numerous automatic features—such as gain control, auto depth, and visual and audio feedback—make the 830R/T easy for even novice operators to confidently identify and trace metallic pipe or cable, water, and gas distribution lines. The ruggedly built, construction-grade 830R/T system has an IP65 environmental rating, so it can stand up to the rigors of the construction site and the toughest weather conditions. On-the-job dependability is further enhanced by the system’s long battery life -- 150 hours on the transmitter, 75 hours on the receiver. The unit weighs 4.6 lb.

Adaptive filtering, one of the system's many industry-exclusive features, ensures that the 830R/T is highly responsive in all modes of operation, providing left-to-right guidance very quickly regardless of mode or operator style. In PV (Peak Verify) mode, another exclusive feature, the 830R/T system gives operators an additional way to confidently verify the locate.
