Inductive Mode for the ST-305R
Disconnect the lead clips from any external conductors before switching the ST-305R to Inductive Mode. If the lead clips are connected to an external conductor and the ST-305R is switched to Inductive Mode, a warning appears and operator override is required.
Do not use clips and leads in Inductive Mode. The ST-305R automatically sets the frequency to 33kHz the first time Inductive Mode is used. After the first use, the ST-305R automatically uses the frequency last used in Inductive Mode. The two frequencies available in Inductive Mode are 8 kHz and 33 kHz.
NOTICE: Do not place two ST-305Rs in Inductive Mode with the power on within 3m[10ft] of each other. The output of each ST-305R can overload the electronics and damage one or both units.
Use the ST-305R in Inductive Mode by following these steps:
- Place the ST-305R so the white orientation arrows located on top of the ST-305R are aligned with the target conductor.
- Press the Power key to power on the ST-305R. Press the Inductive Mode key to toggle the ST-305R between Direct Connect Mode and Inductive Mode. Ground both ends of the utility for best signal induction.
- To power on and use the receiver, refer to the receiver’s Operator Manual. Ensure the frequency on the receiver matches the ST-305R. If the receiver signal increases when held near the ST-305R, it is correctly picking up the transmitted frequency.
- After completing the locate, press the Power key to power off the ST-305R.
