MALA's Easy Locator.

Schonstedt Instrument
The TraceMaster II offers a remote link between the transmitter and the receiver units – a radio frequency two-way communications channel is used, and makes it possible to change the transmitter frequency from the receiver up to 1,500 feet away. TraceMaster II offers four classes of frequencies. The low range frequency is the best choice for tracing over long cable lines. Medium range frequencies are generally the most useful range for location. If the signal is weak during the beginning of a trace, you can switch to a higher range frequency. Very high range frequencies are good for rapidly sweeping for all utilities in a congested area. The locator features simple operation with only two buttons and two knobs. No transmitter settings are required. In addition, the receiver has the ability to operate in manual or automatic gain modes. 800.999.8280, www.schonstedt.com
