RIDGID(R) KD-4000 Line Transmitter Helps Find Buried Cable and Utility Lines
ELYRIA. OH - August 2001 Ridge Tool Company has introduced the new KD-4000 line transmitter for use in locating underground electrical lines, telephone lines, cast iron pipes, water lines and other metallic cables. The transmitter applies a tracing signal onto the buried line or cable, allowing it to be detected by a RIDGID(R) KD-4510 or KD-4550 line locator.
The signal can be transmitted onto the buried line in three ways: 1) by direct connection using a connector cord, 2) by induction from the transmitter case, or 3) by induction from the optional RIDGID Inductive Signal Clamp. The signal then allows the operator to follow the path of the buried line.
The KD-4000 kit includes a durable, easy-to-carry case; a color-coded connector cord for direct connection; a high-conductive ground rod; and eight D-cell batteries. An optional inductive
signal clamp is also available. The entire unit weighs just 6.2 lbs. and measures 17" x 9.2" x 7.9".
