ELYRIA, OHIO January 2008 RIDGID® is introducing the RIDGID® SeekTech® SR-60 utility locator, which provides end users with more information to make the most informed decisions about underground infrastructure for easier and more accurate locates. The SR-60 is the only utility locator with the capability to receive the full range of locatable frequencies, allowing it to be used with any pre-set frequency transmitter.
Expanding on the SR-20 utility locator, the SR-60 has additional frequencies and more versatility. With the
SR-60, users can locate at the broad frequency range of 10 Hz to 490 kHz, and can tune the frequency 1 Hz at a time, allowing the SR-60 to be used with any pre-set frequency transmitter. The unique passive search mode can be used to search all broadband passive frequencies at once, allowing for easy identification of unknown metallic lines in the target area. These features provide the necessary data for the professional locator to develop a comprehensive and accurate understanding of the underground infrastructure.
The SR-60™s innovative, easy-to-read display visually maps the signal, so end users can constantly view the changes in the line direction, depth and signal strength in real time. With the added feature that allows users to program up to 30 field-configurable, user-designated frequencies, end users have maximum versatility.
The RIDGID SR-60 locator uses multi-directional antennas and state-of-the-art processing to provide users with the information they need to effectively and easily locate underground utilities.
RIDGID locators are engineered to raise the standard in locating equipment. With the technological advancements and the higher frequencies that the SR-60 has to offer, professional locators are empowered with more information to make more informed decisions about their locates. The SR-60 offers the most flexibility as it provides the broadest range of frequencies,â€ said Mark Fleming, senior product manager, diagnostics, RIDGID.
