RFX-1500/2500 Technicians Locator

The RFX-1500/2500 Wire and Cable Locator is designed to trace and locate, all types of inside and outside wiring and piping.The RFX-1500/2500 takes the design of the RFX Family of locators one step further.The RFX-1500 Transmitter can be connected to LIVE AC power (up to 220VAC) to allow tracing of live electrical circuits in the house, or buried outdoors.

When connected to WORKING telephone lines, the RFX-1500 Transmitter is totally Transparent. It is not audible on phone lines, does not disrupt FAX, modem, or voice communications.

The RFX-1500 Transmitter can even transmit into a ground, so you can trace GAS and WATER pipes buried outside.

The RFX-1500/2500 is a sophisticated RADIO transmitter and receiver operating at 455khz, with two user selectable modulation Tones (600hz/800hz). And two user selectable transmit modes (continuous and dual modulation). Continuous Mode is used for Tracing and Dual Modulation Mode is used with our PATENTED earth probing technology.

As it is Radio Based, the RFX-1500/2500 system has a detection range of over 10 feet indoors, and can detect buried wiring and cables down to 3 feet or more outdoors.

The Printed Circuit Boards of theRFX-1500/2500 are Conformal Coated to protect them from water and moisture.

The RFX-2500 has a headset jack for listening in noisy environments. C.I. has a Headset Model we recommend that comes with a remote volume switch.
