The new Gen-Eye Hot Spot™ Transmitter from General Pipe Cleaners makes pipe and utility locating easier than ever.  The fully loaded 5-watt transmitter features 4 trace frequencies, and an LCD graphic display that indicates line resistance and current flow.

More power means more signal to locate. Choose one of 4 line trace frequencies – 1KHz, 8KHz, 33KHz or 65KHz. You can select the frequency and power that best suits your application. And the superior battery life keeps the unit operating for as much as 100 hours—more than twice as long as other brands. The selectable automatic shutdown feature saves power as well.

The Hot Spot graphic display with auto backlight indicates battery level, output level, USB connection, connectivity, type of transmission (induction, direct connect leads, or clamp), and active frequencies. The menu based system allows you to configure the transmitter according to your needs. Switch between a simple display or the advanced display to monitor milliamps, watts, ohms, and volts.

It even keeps track of hour count, software version, configuration date and calibration date.

The transmitter can easily be upgraded to the latest software updates on-line using the built in USB connection. Optimal frequencies for your area can be configured for each unit. Then use the menu to activate only the frequencies most suited to a particular jobsite. The unit includes shoulder strap for easy transport, and 10 ft. cables and ground stake.
