The "GO-FER" Detectron 501 clamp was designed to accompany the 505 Pipe & Cable locator for superior tracing and locating abilities. Fully capable of identifying isolated pipes and cables in complex underground systems. The 501 gives utility users a more accurate means of location, as well as advantages in speed and convenience. The 501 Induction Clamp induces a current into the conductor using a strong electromagnetic field, without the possibility of air coupling into parallel lines. This allows for greater tracing distances.
To operate The Model 501-C Induction Clamp, simply plug the cable into the output jack on the 505 "GO-FER" Transmitter panel when inducing a current into a selected line. Plug the cable into the input jack on the 505 "GO-FER" Receiver when tracing a particular line, or when following a line that is being induced with a signal from another Induction Clamp in manhole-to-manhole type location.
The induction Clamp can be used in all tracing methods where conductors are exposed in a least one place, with the exception of a terminated end that is an open circuit. When coupling the transmitter clamp to a terminating end of a trace object, a grounded conductor is required for proper current flow. Be sure that the clamp is coupled to a conductor in between the ground and the point where the conductor enters the earth, in order to prevent the trace signal from returning to the ground.
The Model 501 is waterproof and built to withstand rough handling. If used properly, it will provide years of service without the need for maintenance. Refer to the brochure for additional modes of typical operation and follow the illustration below for proper application.
