X100 N-Cell Transmitter Family (2" - 14")

Multi-Frequency TRAXALL Transmitter

The X100 transmitter family are CDI's smallest TRAXALL compatibleelectromagnetic transmitters. This family consists of five transmitters which house 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 N-Cell batteries. The X100-1N is by far the smallest pig tracking transmitter in the world. 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.

Frequency Control

Frequency control of the X100 family allows an operator to configure these transmitters to one of TRAXALL's 7 colorized frequencies, or optionally use the industry standard 22Hz legacy frequency. 22Hz mode provides full backward compatibility with CDI's CD42 receiver (and competitive receivers as well).

Power Control

Power control of the X100 transmitters allows the operator to directly manage the tradeoff between range of the transmitter versus its battery life. For short runs the output power (transmitter strength) can be set to maximum at the expense of battery life, and for long runs the same transmitter could have its output power reduced to achieve extraordinary battery life. Power may be varied easily and wirelessly using CDI's FieldLink Configurator program.

FieldLink 

FieldLink is CDI's proprietary wireless communications network. Each X100 family transmitter comes with a built-in radio frequency antenna (pictured above). 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.

Operating pressure of all standard X100 transmitters is 2,500 PSI [172 bar].

Whether rented or purchased, all X100 transmitters come with:

  • Optionally flanged stainless steel X100 transmitter
  • Appropriate number of Alkaline 1.5V Type N-Cell batteries
  • Spare O Rings

This family of devices is covered under United States Patent number 9172406.

Note: Users may significantly increase battery life of all X-Series transmitters by using CDI's FieldLink to lower output power and/or alter the transmitter's pulse/continuous mode or frequency used.

Note: Battery life quoted is worst-case for each model.

Note: N-Cell batteries typically have a capacity of only 800mA hours and care must be taken to maximize transmitter battery life. N-Cell lithium batteries are not available.
