Product Description

VM-850 Transmitter Overview:

Vivax-Metrotech designed the VM-850 Transmitter to send active signals for the location of buried pipes and cables. High impact ABS plastic encases the 2-watt transmitter which operates on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.  It also has one external 3-pin connection socket and comes with 1 set of direct connection leads and 1 ground stake.  This transmitter is sold separately as a replacement for the transmitter that is included in the full Vivax Metrotech 850 line locator kit.

The VM-850 transmitter is designed to have a lightweight, ergonomic profile.  In fact, it weighs just 4.1 pounds and includes a carrying strap.  This allows the user to carry the unit easily during locates.  A fully charged lithium-ion battery will typically last 40 hours with intermittent use.  Model Number:  VX216-02

Additional Upgrades:

Additionally, you can buy an optional Transmitter Induction Clamp for use together with the VM-850 transmitter which can put the signal directly onto a cable.  It is compatible with the 2″, 4″, and 5″ Transmitter Clamps.
