The NaviTrack Brick transmitter is part of Ridgid’s NaviTrack cable and pipe locating system. The NaviTrack Brick is used to energize a pipe or line with an “active” electrical signal so that the underground line may be traced with a compatible receiver (such as the NaviTrack II). This allows the line’s location to be correctly marked so it can be exposed for repair or avoided during excavation.
The NaviTrack Brick line transmitter can apply an active tracing signal to a target conductor in three ways:
- Direct Connect: The transmitter’s leads are connected directly to the target conductor and a suitable ground.
- Inductive Clamp: The jaws of the inductive clamp encircle the target conductor; there is no metal-to-metal contact. The inductive clamp is connected to the transmitter via the jack at the transmitter’s right end. (The inductive clamp is an optional accessory)
- Inductive Mode (internal coils): the transmitter is placed over, and in-line with, a conductor. Its internal antenna broadcasts a signal to the target conductor below ground, inducing a current into the target conductor.
