Trident EM Transmitters

The Trident series Electromagnetic Transmitters have been developed by Propipe Limited for use within pipeline pigs for identification, tracking and locating. Trident transmitters produce high power, efficient waveforms at a range of frequencies, from 10Hz to 30Hz.

All Trident transmitters are programmable using Bluetooth technology, without the requirement to open the unit.

Parameters such as: Power Output, Frequency & Pulse Rate can be programmed to optimize the transmitter for a specific pipeline/project. Options for Pressure-Switch and Wet-Contact start are also available.

Each transmitter houses an onboard Data Logger which can measure Acceleration and Gyro as standard (See PDL for optional Pressure and Temperature logging which are also available).
