Customizing Display Elements 

Read this article to learn how to customize display elements on the SR-24LE and SR-20 utility locating receivers.

In Active Line Trace Mode and Sonde Mode you can customize the display elements that appear on screen. A checked box means the element is enabled and an unchecked box means it is disabled. From the Customizing Display Elements Screen, press the Select Key to check and uncheck boxes.

Note: Any changes made to Active Line Trace Mode also apply to Passive Line Trace Mode and vice versa.

Element Line Trace Mode Sonde Mode

To customize display elements, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings menu and press the Down Arrow Key to navigate to the Customizing Display Elements icon.
  2. Press the Select Key to open the Display Elements menu and highlight the mode you want to customize the display for: either Sonde Mode or Line Trace Mode.
  3. Press the Select Key to open the customization screen.
  4. Use the Up and Down Arrow Keys to highlight an option and press the Select Key to check and uncheck the options. Check the box to enable feature and uncheck the box to disable it.
  5. Press the Menu Key to save and exit.

Max Signal Indicators

The Race Track, Watermark, and Level Pointer work to- gether to dynamically give you points of reference for the highest signal the SR-24 detects. The information provided by these indicators can find the maximum signal strength during your locating process.

The Race Track is the circular track around the Active View Area. As you move the receiver, the Level Pointer moves clockwise around the Race Track as Signal Strength increases and regresses counterclockwise when the Signal Strength decreases. When the Signal Strength begins to decrease, a Watermark is left behind
to represent the highest signal level detected.

In Sonde Mode, the Watermark represents the highest Signal Strength detected by the receiver. In Line Trace Modes the Watermark represents the highest Proximity Number reached.

In many cases when the Watermark appears and the Level Pointer begins moving counter clockwise, then you may be moving away from the target line.

Max Signal Indicators

The Proximity Number is designed to increase as the SR‑24 gets closer to the target line. In many cases, maximizing the Proximity Number is a more accurate way of pinpointing the location of the target line than Signal Strength alone.

Use the Proximity Threshold Control to tell the receiver to ignore targets with depth measurements outside of a defined range. By setting a threshold for the maximum depth you can reduce the amount of spurious display artifacts that may distract from the locating process.

If the measured depth of the target line is less than the proximity threshold, the Proximity Number appears as zero and the Mapping Display is suppressed. If the measured depth is greater than the proximity threshold, the Proximity Number is displayed and the Mapping Display is shown.

Note: The Greater Than icon > only appears when the receiver detects utility lines that are deeper than the depth shown.

To adjust the Proximity Threshold Control, follow these steps:

  1. Activate the Proximity Threshold Control in the display settings.
    Note: Refer to the Customizing Display Elements section for instructions on how to activate the Proximity Threshold Control.
  2. Check the box to the Proximity Threshold Control setting.
  3. Press the Menu Key to save and exit.
  4. Press and hold the Up Arrow Key past the lowest Proximity Threshold range the Signal Strength appears in the center of the screen.
  5. Press and hold the Down Arrow Key , past the lowest Proximity Threshold range and the Signal Strength appears in the center of the screen.

    Note: The depth measurement appears on a black background when the SR‑24 is measuring a negative depth (signal from above the SR‑24).

Proximity Threshold Control

When the measured depth is greater than the Proximity Threshold Control limit set in the menu, the sound is muted. By default, the Proximity Threshold Control is disabled. When the Proximity Threshold Control is disabled, the sound automatically mutes when measured depth is greater than 30 m [99 ft].

To adjust the Proximity Threshold Control, follow these steps:

  1. Activate the Proximity Threshold Control in the display settings.
    Note: Refer to the Customizing Display Elements section for instructions on how to activate the Proximity Threshold Control.
  2. Check the box to the Proximity Threshold Control setting.
  3. Press the Menu Key to save and exit.
  4. Press and hold the Up Arrow Key past the lowest Proximity Threshold range the Signal Strength appears in the center of the screen.
  5. Press and hold the Down Arrow Key past the lowest Proximity Threshold range and the Signal Strength appears in the center of the screen.

    Note: The depth measurement appears on a black background when the SR‑24 is measuring a negative depth (signal from above the SR‑24).

Information Options

Factory Reset Options

The SR‑24 contains two reset options:
