CT-6 sensor probe

• Based on magnetometer technology—passive inductive coil
• Only detects moving steel—no false alarms caused by people, animals, wind, etc.
• Bury directly in dirt beside driveway (no driveway renovation necessary)
• Covers 12 foot wide driveway from the side
• Maintenance-free, solid construction, sealed and weatherproof
• Sensor probe and cable do not require conduit
• Tough polyurethane coated for maximum protection and splicing in the field
• May be spliced with underground splice kit (see below)—no need to rip out all cable
• Special sensor probe with 10′ of cable, allowing replacement of probe without ripping out cable
• Fully shielded to avoid false alarms caused by RF noise
• Custom length of continuous cable from 10 ft. to 3,000 ft. in 50 ft. increments up to 500 ft. and in 100 ft. increments from 500 ft. to 3,000 ft. May splice to make longer than 3,000 ft.
• Sensor Probe dimensions: 16.5″ long x 1.25″ diameter
• Use with DriveGuard, DriveGuard Ultra, DriveGuard Integrator, and Pioneer Free Exit systems
