Tracemaster II

Remote Frequency Control The TraceMaster II is the first pipe and cable locator on the market to offer a Remote Link between the transmitter and the receiver units. This is accomplished through a radio frequency (RF) two-way communications channel, and makes it possible to change the transmitter frequency from the receiver up to 1500 feet away.

Versatile With three classes of frequencies, the TraceMaster is the most versatile locator on the market. 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. High range frequencies are good for rapidly sweeping for all utilities in a congested area.

Easy to Use The TraceMaster II 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. The receiver's LCD panel is uncomplicated and intuitive. The information display is large and easy to understand, while including everything required to monitor the transmitter remotely.

Reliable and Trouble Free Schonstedt’s locators have been setting the standard for reliability and dependability for nearly half a century. Our locators are designed to withstand the rigors of daily on-site usage and a wide range of environmental conditions.The TraceMaster II is backed by a three year warranty which is the longest in the industry. No periodic calibration is required.

Choice of Options and Models
There are several TraceMaster II options. The top of the line model offers three active frequencies (575Hz, 8kHz, 82kHz) and choice of one passive frequency (50Hz or 60 Hz) with a radio link to control the transmitter from the receiver like a remote. Choice of sonde is available.

An alternative model with manually adjusted frequencies and no radio link.

  • Passive detection of 50Hz or 60Hz, sonde frequency
  • One button depth measurement
  • Digital readout display of signal strength
  • LCD displays left, right and "on-target"
    indications, as well as battery status
  • Transmitter, 8-Hours operational battery life (intermittent usage)
  • Receiver, 60-Hours operational battery life (intermittent usage)
  • Lightweight, easy-to-use design
  • Digital Signal Processing which is easily
    upgraded as new features are developed
