DML LOCATOR OVERVIEW
The DML 2000 is a sophisticated, state-of-the-art locator that is highly
reliable and user-friendly. It weighs just 1.6 pounds but is built
rugged enough to operate under the most demanding field conditions. Four
alkaline AA batteries provide up to120 hours of operation.
You'll never have to be concerned about replacing batteries in the
middle of a search operation. The Low-Battery LED indicator begins
flashing when the remaining life of the batteries reaches 20 to 25
There are only two controls and one switch, so it does not take long to
become efficient using the locator. Just toggle the On/Off switch,
adjust the Volume control for a comfortable signal level, and set the
Sensitivity control to 3 (nominal setting). The
separate Power, Volume and Sensitivity controls allow the operator to leave
the Volume and Sensitivity controls in a favorite or preset position when
the instrument is deactivated. Later when operation is resumed,
these control settings remain unchanged
The sensor housing is waterproof and the electronics water-resistant.
Moreover, the circuit design and component selection ensures proper
operation whether the ambient temperature is -20oF or 120oF.
For added strength and reliability, the electronics package is made of
impact resistant ABS plastic, while the sensor tube and base plate are made
of 6061-T6 aluminum, welded together. Moreover, the two sensing elements are
shock-mounted on there own individual support tube, inside the yellow sensor
tube. This added sensor isolation guarantees that the sensor alignment
and overall instrument performance will withstand normal physical abuse and
harsh weather conditions. In addition, all electronic components have been
carefully selected for long life and harsh environment operation.
Each Locator is shipped
complete with a softpack carrying case, user's manual, and a spare set of
