Electronic Transmitter

The Ditch Witch organization announces the release of the new 910T electronic locating transmitter, an economical transmitter used to apply a controlled signal to metallic pipes and cables. It is designed to be used with the Ditch Witch 910R receiver.

In active mode, the 910T transmits via direct-line connection, induction clamp or induced broadcast signals. Together, the 910R and 910T offer an affordable locator package that helps customers efficiently locate buried telephone, CATV, power, gas and water lines with a tracer wire.

The 910T transmitter comes standard with up to three frequencies of the customer's choosing. Frequencies are factory-set when the transmitter is ordered, and additional frequencies may be added. Available frequencies are 512 Hz, 1 kHz, 8 kHz, 29 kHz, 80 kHz. With simultaneous 8 and 29 kHz transmission, an alternate signal is available if one is hard to detect. The 80 kHz frequency is helpful in locating old tracer wires or pipes with insulators where low frequencies do not work well.

Each 910T transmitter also comes standard with direct-connect leads, a ground stake and 8 D-cell batteries.
