The RadiodetectionTX-5B transmitter offers a higher 5 watt power output than the TX-1 signal generator, and also adds Bluetooth making it compatible with an iLOC enabled locator,. This allows certain functions of the transmitter to be remotely controlled from an iLOC enabled locator (RD8100, RD8000). The TX-5B is used to apply an active trace signal to a buried cable or pipe, allowing the operator to use a suitable Radiodetection underground service locator, in order to trace the signal. The main benefit of a higher power transmitter, such as the TX-5B is that the additional power output allows a higher current to flow in the target line, permitting longer and deeper locations to be performed.
All models feature a three-stage phase sensitive amplifier that delivers a constant current across its entire bandwidth in direct connect, clamp or inductive modes.
The TX range is designed to deliver superior performance using minimal power consumption in a light weight and well-balanced, format. The transmitters are light-weight (2.9kg), well-balanced and IP54 rated to cope with demanding environmental conditions. Each model has a removable accessory tray and a weatherproof battery compartment. A large, high contrast, backlit LCD screen provides the user with clear information.
Based on a fully digital platform, the family of Radiodetection transmitters is able to support the full range of Radiodetection RD7100 and RD8100 cable, pipe and RF marker locators.
The TX-5B is a mid-range power transmitter, whereas the TX-1 has a low power capability and the TX-10 and TX-10B have the highest power capability. The TX-5, TX-5B and TX-10 / TX10-B feature Fault Find as standard, and the TX-5B and TX-10B have Bluetooth capability, which allows for remote control by a suitable locator. Fault find, as is found on this transmitter allows the user to couple the transmitter to an A-Frame in order to facilitate the location of current leakage faults in cables and pipe coatings, which indicate an insulation fault. With the A-Frame attachment, these faults can be pinpointed to an accuracy of up to 10cms with a suitable locator.
Applying a locate signal is possible by either direct connection, utilising a signal clamp or by wireless induction, by placing the transmitter on the ground over the buried service
