X100-1N alongside a C-Cell battery

X100-1N Transmitter (2" - 6")

Smallest in the World

Measuring just 50mm by 25mm, the X100-1N is the smallest electromagnetic pig tracking transmitter in the world.


Although the X100-1N is tiny, it's also a fully capable computer controlled TRAXALL compatible electromagnetic transmitter which has programmable frequency and power control through CDI's proprietary FieldLink wireless communications system.


Frequency and Pulse Control

Frequency control allows the operator to configure the transmitter to one of TRAXALL's 7 colorized frequencies, or the industry standard 22Hz legacy frequency for backward compatibility with CDI's CD42 receiver or competitive receivers.


In addition, the operator can program this transmitter to emit a constant-on signal or a pulsing signal. If pulsing is desired, users may design their own pulse pattern allowing for differentiation between pigs in a line or to save power by slowing down the repetition rate.


Power Control

Power control allows the operator to directly manage the tradeoff between range of the transmitter versus its battery life. For short runs the output power (transmitter strength) can be set to maximum at the expense of battery life, and for long runs the same transmitter could have its output power reduced to achieve extraordinary battery life. Power may be varies from 20% to 100% of maximum using CDI's FieldLink Configurator program.


FieldLink Wireless Configuration CompatibleFieldLink

FieldLink is CDI's proprietary wireless communications network. Each X100-1N transmitter comes with a built-in radio frequency antenna. By connecting to the transmitter with our proprietary radio frequency USB key (sold separately), any Windows PC or laptop can wirelessly communicate to and configure the transmitter.


Operating pressure is rated at 2,500 PSI [172 bar] with a user-configurable battery life.


Whether rented or purchased, the X100-1N comes with:


• Flangeless stainless steel X100-1N transmitter

• 1 Alkaline 1.5V Type N-Cell battery

• Spare O Rings
