FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Perry, Okla. – Subsite Electronics, a Charles Machine Works Company, has introduced the new TK RECON Series HDD Guidance System. Built upon the company’s popular TK Series trackers, the TK RECON Series delivers proven TK performance but adds several productivity-enhancing features through a new advanced-technology base.

“The TK RECON introduces the future of our HDD guidance systems,” said John Bieberdorf, product manager, HDD guidance systems, Subsite Electronics. “Our engineers have developed technology that not only offers our customers great new features now, but will accept upgraded features in the future.”

New features include more battery options than any competitive model. TK RECON users can chose Li Ion, NiMH, or off-the-shelf “C” Alkaline batteries for flexibility of cost and better performance in colder climates.

“The battery choices are a big deal,” Bieberdorf said. “Li Ion batteries are rechargeable and deliver twice the battery life of Alkaline. But just as important, our trackers are the only ones to accept off-the-shelf “C” batteries. If you forget to recharge batteries or lose charge on the jobsite, you can pop in some “C” batteries and stay productive.”

The TK RECON Series also features an improved radio with increased interference immunity and faster information transfer, for more reliable communication on the jobsite.

A louder speaker provides clear audio signals even in high ambient noise areas, offering users an additional peak locating method—by number or sound.

Other features include an integrated compass, which allows users to easily determine the magnetic heading of the tracker and the tool head (beacon) for faster orientation, and connectivity with both Android® and iOS (iPhone® / iPad®) mobile devices. This connectivity enables users to communicate with the tracker, update TK & TD software, and download bore information into TSR mobile, Subsite’s As-Built software included with every TK RECON Series tracker.

The TK RECON Series offers dual locating methods (walkover and DrillTo™) and a depth range of up to 110 feet (33.5 m). Product configurations include the single-frequency TK RECON1™ (29 kHz), the two-frequency TK RECON2™ (12 kHz and 29 kHz) and the four-frequency TK RECON4™ (1.5 kHz, 12 kHz, 20 kHz and 29 kHz).
