Q: What Wireless Range does the Transmitter have?
A: 800 metres (line of sight), which equates to around 300 - 600 metres in most applications.

Q: Where & how is the best place to Fit the Probe?
A: It is best to bury the probe on the side of the road or track parallel to the direction of the traffic, the ideal situation would be just under the grass verge or inside a hedge (the probe must not be able to move as this would create false alarms).

A: Yes: 14 metres (2-core)

Q: How is the Transmitter powered?
A: 3 x CR123 Lithium Batteries.

Q: What is the Output Terminals in the Transmitter Box for?
A: There is a N/O Output Trigger designed to connect to our UltraDIAL GSM Dialler.

Q: Do Animals trigger the Probe?
A: No (although steel horseshoes would if they were close to the probe).

Q: What is the Reset time after an Activation?
A: Adjustable (3 - 5 - 9 second options).

Q: Can we lengthen or shorten the Cable between the Probe & Transmitter?
A: Yes (no problem, although if extending the connection needs to be fully weatherproof).

Q: Can we adjust the Sensitivity of the Probe?
A: Yes.

Q: Can we turn the Transmitter OFF?
A: Yes (ON/OFF Switch).

Q: Where is the best place to fit the Transmitter Box?
A: Out of sight and in a good position for wireless transmission.

Q: Can we connect a GSM Dialler to the Probe?
A: Yes, we can supply the Probe with a GSM Dialler allowing it to be used in even the most remote locations (examples would be our references 004-4480 & 004-4490).
