**TraceMaster must be equipped with this option before these accessories will operate

The link between the components allows the receiver to acquire signals regarding the transmitter battery status and other operating parameters such as the approximate depth of the target, and has the ability to operate in manual or automatic gain modes. The TraceMaster II is able to operate on a passive mode, three different active modes (conductive, inductive and clamp), and a sonde mode.

  • LCD screen is backlit for great usage in any low light situation
  • Basic functions are easy to use, with just 2 buttons and 2 knobs, so it is ideal for anyone from the expert to the novice
  • With the push of just one button, accurately measure the distance in depth to your target for instant results
  • Long lasting rechargeable battery life gives you up to 60 hours operational time so you are not left with a “dead” unit
  • The LCD screen displays five different views:
    • Receiver (RX) window
    • Transmitter (TX) window
    • Frequency indicator
    • Direction indicator
    • Numeric display
  • Made in the USA
  • 3- year manufacturer warranty
  • Tested to comply with FCC Standards

The TraceMaster comes standard with five operating frequencies:

Passive Frequency - In this mode the transmitter is not active (see note below). The receiver picks up the AC power (factory selected 50 or 60 Hz) off the buried cables and pipes.

NOTE: The receiver "remembers" the last frequency it was operating at when it was turned off. When the power to the receiver is restored, you will have to depress the FREQ button to switch away from the frequency "remembered". If the transmitter power is turned off, the transmitter will not acknowledge receiving the commands to change frequency, and therefore the receiver will not be able to change to passive frequency. You will have to temporarily turn the transmitter on to allow it to go to passive, then you can turn it back off or leave it in the very low-power consuming "passive" mode.

Low Frequency (575 Hz) - This frequency will not jump to adjacent conductors and can only be induced with the conductive clips connected directly to access points on the utility to be traced.

Mid-range Frequency (8 kHz) - This frequency will not usually jump to adjacent conductors, but may jump across non-conductive joints in a pipe for longer tracing. It can only be induced with the conductive clips connected directly to access points on the utility to be traced, or the optional inductive clamp.

High Frequency (82 kHz) - This frequency can typically jump to adjacent conductors and can be induced by the conductive clips, the optional inductive clamp, or the built-in inductive antenna.

Very High Frequency (455 kHz) - This frequency can easily jump to adjacent conductors and it is a good frequency to use for total field survey or "quick scan" of a small area. It can be induced by the conductive clips , the optional inductive clamp, or the built-in inductive antenna.
NOTE: See Section VII: Sonde Operation, for additional considerations regarding operating frequency.

        Comments about Schonstedt TraceMaster AF All 4 Frequencies + Passive Pipe & Cable Locator with RF Link:

        This locator works very well and is fast and easy to set up and use. It takes a little use to understand the nuances of locating quickly. If there are 2 cables close to each other with a common wire, it can get confused and put the location between them. This requires some caution and to verify you must disconnect wires and trace one cable at a time.
