Ridgid SeekTech SR-24 w/ ST-510 (10 Watt)
The RIDGID SeekTech SR-24 Utility Line Locator is a precision utility locating instrument with GPS and Bluetooth technology for easy integration with external data capture devices, including smart phones, tablets, and high precision GPS instruments.
The SR-24's omnidirectional antennas capture the complete signal field, making it easy to acquire the signal and trace its path. The receiver displays the utility's position and direction on the display, providing an intuitive locating experience. For added confidence, audio and visual warnings notify the operator if the shape of the signal field is being distorted, ensuring that appropriate action can be taken to avoid mismarking the utility's position.
The RIDGID SeekTech ST-510 Pipe and Cable Line Transmitter (10 Watts) is used to generate an "active" signal on a metallic underground line so that it may be traced with a compatible receiver (such as the SeekTech SR-20 or SR-60). This allows the line's location to be correctly marked so it can be exposed for repair or avoided during excavation.
The ST-510 line transmitter can apply an active tracing signal to a target conductor in three ways:
Direct Connect Method: The transmitter's leads are connected directly to the target conductor and a suitable ground.
Inductive Clamp Method (optional accessory): The jaws of the inductive clamp (sold separately) encircle the target conductor; there is no metal-to-metal contact
Inductive Mode: The transmitter is placed over and in-line with a conductor. Its internal antenna induces a signal onto the target conductor.
