The new VM-480B (formerly our P50601) features a crystal controlled transmitter and receiver that provides operating stability. The narrow noise bandwidth of the transmitter gives a clean, no drift response providing the operator with longer ranges and improved accuracy. The active output frequency of 83 kHz works great for jumping over conductors like gasketed pipe. Power line locating capability with Passive 50/60Hz coil design that reduces interference.
VM-480B Transmitter operates for approx 400 hours on (6) AA alkaline batteries and weighs 3.5 lbs. The VM-480B Reciever operates for approx 250 hours on (6) AA alkaline batteries and features a battery check that is automatic on Power-On. An automatic shut-off prevents receiver from being left on with a 30 Minute cycle/time-out alert. Weight on reciever is 4.5 lbs.
The VM-480B comes complete with instruction manual, Conductive Attachment, Ground Rod and Transmitter and Reciever. Add a optional carrying case to protect you investment.
