DETERMINING CABLE DEPTH AND CURRENT

Place the Receiver Antenna on the ground directly above the cable with the handle parallel to the path. Press and the display will indicate the cable depth and relative current. Current is displayed in the lower left corner of the display. Presstwice to continue tracing. You may also pressto return to Trace mode.

LOCATING AN ACTIVE DUCT PROBE (ADP)

Press

to turn the Receiver on.

Press to select the 33 kHz frequency.

With the Receiver handle perpendicular to the conduit path, locate the ADP position by moving along the path until a peak is found.

Press when the bar graph remains either fully open or fully closed. Refer to the ADP operating instructions for further information.

Determining ADP Depth

Place the Receiver Antenna on the ground directly above the located ADP position maintaining the handle orientation perpendicular to the

path. Press twice to display ADP depth. To return to

trace mode, press

or

LOCATING EMS MARKERS

EMS markers may be detected and located using either the 3M Dynatel2205 or 2206 EMS Marker Locating Accessory. To attach the accessory, slide the Receiver horizontally into the EMS Marker Locating Accessory mounting slot. Make sure the locking button holds the Receiver securely in the slot. To separate the units, press the locking button down and slide the Receiver out of the EMS Marker Locating Accessory mounting slot.

Locating Markers while Tracing Cable Path

To detect markers while tracing the cable path, set the 2205 or 2206 accessory mode switch to the Alert position, and trace the cable path normally. The internal buzzer in the accessory will alert you to the proximity of a detected marker.

Locating Markers using the Receiver

If the buzzer response is too broad, the exact marker position may be pinpointed by using the Receiver.

Select 577 Hz or 33 kHz on the Accessory. Use a different frequency from the tracing signal.

Turn the Receiver ON and set the frequency to match the Accessory setting.

Note: The initial Receiver gain in Peak mode is optimized for interfacing with the 2205 or 2206 Accessory while searching for a marker. Pressonly when a marker is detected and the signal is too strong. To search for a new marker, reset the Receiver gain to the initial setting by turning its power OFF and back ON.

Refer to the EMS Marker Locating Accessory operating instructions for further information.

CABLE OR PAIR IDENTIFICATION

Transmitter Setup

Transmitter setup is the same to identify cables or pairs. However, Receiver setups are different.

Perform a battery test; then, connect the Dyna-Couplerto the Transmitter front panel jack using the coupler cable.

Note: Cable Identification requires twoDyna-Couplers:one at the Transmitter and one at the Receiver.

Clamp the Dyna-Coupleraround either the cable or both tip and ring of a pair and make sure the jaws fully close.

Press to turn the Transmitter on and select the 33 kHz frequency. LED indicates the frequency selection.

Press to change the high output level.

Receiver Setup

Connect a second Dyna-Couplerto the Receiver accessory jack another coupler cable.

Note: Cable Identification requires twoDyna-Couplers:one at the Transmitter and one at the Receiver.

Press to turn the Receiver on.

Press to select the highest toning frequency.

Check the first cable in the group by clamping the Dyna-Coupleraround the cable. Pressand observe the numeric display, which is relative

signal strength. Remember the number and continue by clamping the Dyna-Coupleraround the next cable in the group. If the signal strength is

greater than the previous observation, press . If the signal strength is

less than before, ignore it. After checking all the cables in the group, the cable with the highest reading is the one being identified.

PAIR IDENTIFICATION

Receiver Setup

Connect the inductive probe to the Receiver accessory jack using the probe cable.

Press to turn the Receiver on.

Press to select the 33 kHz frequency.

Insert the Probe into the bundle of pairs (or the group, if known) and press . Next, divide the pairs into two bundles and insert the

Probe into each of the bundles and observe the numeric display. The bundle with the highest reading will contain the target pair. Continue by dividing the bundle with the target pair into two parts and checking each part for the highest signal. In this way the pair to be identified will be isolated.
