Based on a fully digital platform, the Tx family of Radiodetection transmitters supports the entire range of RD8000 cable and pipe locators.
The Tx-1 is an easy to use, entry-level, transmitter. The Tx-3 offers higher current and induction capabilities, and features 8kHz Fault Find (8KFF) functionality. The Tx-10 has the highest current capability with 8kHz Fault Find (8KFF) and Current Direction (CD) functions as standard.
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.
