DigiTrak Falcon F2 Transmitters

The DigiTrak Falcon F2 transmitters, offered in two lengths, supports hundreds of frequencies between 4.5 and 45 kHz so the optimum frequency bands for each site can be chosen to avoid active interference. Both Falcon F2 transmitters are compatible with Falcon F2 and Falcon F5 systems. A complete redesign has led to significant improvements in range.

Housing Requirements

DCI's FT2 and FT2s wideband transmitters have the same dimensions as earlier DigiTrak transmitter models and are compatible with existing drill housings that accommodate 15 in. (38.1 cm) and 8 in. (20.32 cm) DigiTrak transmitters.  The slots in the drill head must meet minimum length and width requirements and be correctly positioned. DCI’s transmitters require a minimum of three slots equally spaced around the circumference of the drill head for optimal signal emission and maximum battery life. Measure slot lengths on the inside of the drill head; slots must be at least 1.6 mm (1/16 in.) wide. DCI transmitters fit standard housings but may require a battery cap adapter in some cases.
