The new Gen-Eye Hot-Spot transmitter from General Pipe Cleaners makes pipe and utility locating easier than ever. The fully loaded 5-watt transmitter features four trace frequencies, and an LCD graphic display that indicates line resistance and current flow. 

More power means more signal to locate. Choose one of four line trace frequencies — 1, 8, 33 or 65 KHz. You can select the frequency and power that best suits your application. And the superior battery life keeps the unit operating for as much as 100 hours — more than twice as long as other units. The selectable automatic shutdown feature saves power as well. 

The Hot-Spot graphic display with auto backlight indicates battery level, output level, USB connection, connectivity, type of transmission (induction, direct connect leads, or clamp), and active frequencies. The menu-based system allows you to configure the transmitter according to your needs. Switch between a simple display and the advanced display to monitor milliamps, watts, ohms and volts. 

It even keeps track of hour count, software version, configuration date and calibration date. The transmitter can easily be upgraded to the latest software updates online using the built-in USB connection. Optimal frequencies for your area can be configured for each unit. Then use the menu to activate only the frequencies most suited to a particular job site. The unit includes shoulder strap for easy transport, and 10-foot cables and ground stake. 

Hot-Spot transmitter features:

  • More power — A powerful 5-watt output with five output levels makes locating utilities easier.
  • Expanded frequencies — The transmitter locates four line frequencies — 1, 8, 33 and 65 KHz (65 KHz at 1-watt max).
  • Simple, menu-based user interface — No need for multiple screens. Easy-to-access menus make it easier to use than other models.
  • Easy-to-read display — Icons indicate a quality connection and power settings. Auto backlight lets you locate in dimly lit areas.
  • Superior battery life — The unit lasts approximately 100-plus hours, more than twice as long as other brands. An automatic shutdown feature saves power.
  • Upgradeable software — Use the USB port to upgrade software in the field or for a screen capture. 

The Gen-Eye Hot-Spot transmitter gives you the power and versatility to make utility line locating easier, faster, and more productive. That means more profitability for your business.
