    Default general info

    hi there,

    i'm looking for a link to inormation.....specs on a disontinued locator i own.....
    tempo tr 4110.

    i'm trying to get enough info together to build or have built a locator with a 1748hz freq and a [84.2khz i think].

    here's the deal....

    1748hz pairs to the solenoids on sprinkler valves but locates by null, the 84.2khz can be a peak signal. tracing irrigation wires in peak is the ticket as it's much easier to follow...

    once traced the 1748hz is connected and with the wire path already flagged the solenoid will lead you to itself.

    right now i have to use 2 machines to do the job quickly [average time is 1-1 1/2 hrs. and i have more equipment to carry to jobsite.

    i'd be greatful for any tips

    jim

    You are providing an awesome example of highly specialized sub surface imaging.

    I also love the pic of Rooster swiggin' out the bottle!

    i was able to get a manual in pdf from the former manufacturer....i have also e-mailed two companies requesting that research be directed towards the developement of a machine combining both peak and null tracing and the solenoid finding abilities.

    it doesn't sound like much but, most of the irrigation techs that use locating equipment use it so seldom that they have a hard time connecting them properly.

    linerider, thanks for the reply
