Designed to be more accurate, faster and more integrated than any other
locator on the market, the 3M™ Dynatel™ 2500 Series Locators and fault
finders represent an advancement in locating and fault finding technology
for the field professional. Offering a broad feature set with advanced digital
processing, the 2500 Series locators combine simple interfaces with precision
locating capabilities. All 2500 series locators offer six active frequencies and
a maximum transmitter output of 12 watts providing a solution for virtually
all challenging applications encountered in the field.
As with all 3M™ Dynatel™ Locator products, the 2500 series provides
accurate pipe, cable or Sonde depth measurements, giving a digital readout
in feet and inches, or centimeters (user-selectable). Lightweight, compact
and well-balanced, these cable and pipe locators allow you to accurately and
easily locate your underground plant and assets. The 3M™ Dynatel™ 2550-iD
and 2573-iD have the additional capability to locate all standard electronic
markers and to write, read and lock programmed information into 3M™
Electronic Marker System iD Markers. All 2500 series locators and fault
finders are also compatible with select GPS/GIS field mapping instruments
for real time mapping of electronic markers or pipe and cable facilities.
Other user friendly features include the ability to enable or disable receiver
frequencies and the ability to select audio sounds in the simple menu driven
interface.
