Wire detector EBEX 420 TR

-

The search device detects high frequency signals as caused by longitudinal conductive items. Such items and wires in particular act as an antenna, which concentrates and emits high frequency.

The EBEX® 420 TR is enhanced by a transmitter, fitted to the rear of the search device, which increases the detection sensitivity to wires and other oscillating items substantially.

The wire locator EBEX® 420 TR is a further development of the forerunner model EB 420DS.

The EBEX® 420 TR is enhanced by a transmitter, fitted to the rear of the search device, which increases the detection sensitivity to wires and other oscillating items substantially. When operating in areas with a low ambient high frequency level, the transmitter would become necessary anyway.

The search device detects high frequency signals as caused by longitudinal conductive items. Such items and wires in particular act as an antenna, which concentrates and emits high frequency. To a some extend the device can locate metal objects of substantial size, which are within the effective range of the transmitter. Also active HF transmitter can be located.

A significant advantage of the transmitter / receiver design consists in its increased detection sensitivity and in the possibility to demount the transmitter from the EBEX® 420 TR search arrangement and to place it on top of a detected wire. This allows a direct coupling of the transmitter signal to the wire, which almost doubles the detection range and makes it easy to follow the route of the wire.

The EBEX® 420 TR locator is switched into operation by connection of the single sided headset or a loudspeaker. The T shaped transmitter is activated by its own ON/OFF rocker switch. To adjust the sensitivity, respectively the audio alarm threshold of the locator a threshold adjuster is placed at the right side of the control section. As soon as the locator search head comes close to a wire (of a minimum length of 5 m), the approach is indicated by an audio signal.
