X200 AA-Cell Transmitter Family (6" - 28")

Multi-Frequency TRAXALL Transmitter

The X200 transmitter family are CDI's small-sized TRAXALL compatible electromagnetic transmitters. This family consists of two transmitters which house either 2 or 3 AA-Cell batteries. These transmitters have both user-adjustable frequency and output power through the use of CDI's FieldLink wireless communications system. Using CDI's TRAXALL transmitters, an operator may have direct control over battery life vs. strength tradeoffs. Short pig runs can go for maximum power and long pig runs can be more conservative with pulsing modes and/or reduced power.

FieldLink Wireless Configuration Compatible

FieldLink is CDI's proprietary wireless communications network. Each X100 family transmitter comes with a built-in radio frequency antenna and by connecting to the transmitter with our proprietary radio frequency USB key (sold separately), any Windows PC or laptop can wirelessly communicate to and configure the transmitter.

 

Our Windows Configurator software for FieldLink is freely available here.
