Beach Probe and Battery Powered Portable Electroding Detector Models 5917 and 5918
The 5917/5918 Electroding Probe and Detector system is a high gain low frequency selective Receiver/Amplifier to detect the electromagnetic field from a submarine cable energised by the Tinsley 5915 Electroding generator or similar. The 5917 Beach Probe and 5917D Divers Probe are inductive probes suitable for receiving 15 to 30Hz signals emanating from a suitably energised submarine cable. The 5918 detector amplifies, filters, and indicates the signal received at the selected frequency. At the highest gain setting a 10┬ÁV RMS input signal at the correct frequency will give a full scale reading on the analogue front panel meter. The 5918 electroding detector is completely self-contained in a portable carry case with shoulder strap. Integral rechargeable batteries are included and a separate mains power module is supplied to recharge them. In use the 5918 detector is connected to the receiving probe, either a Tinsley type 5917 Beach probe or 5917D Divers Probe. The exact operating frequency is selected on the thumbwheel switches and the gain switch is adjusted to obtain a useful indication of the signal. A frequency of either 16.7Hz or 25Hz is recommended when using the 5917 Probes. An audible output signal is available which can be heard by using the plug in headphones supplied. The larger the signal received the higher the frequency heard. A volume control is provided for adjustment of loudness. For more information about this product contact Tinsley
