The advanced training techniques employed by the RC-8 utilizes sound stimulus to reinforce the shock stimulus. The RC-8's tone speaker produces a tone that is much louder than those used by competing collars. Other collars may include a very small speaker element fully enclosed inside the collar casing to keep it from getting wet and failing. Our engineers designed a speaker that transmits its sound to the outside world while being highly water resistant. the RC-8 is completely water sealed and immersible. No worries if Fido decides to run in the rain, play in the snow or even take a quick dip in the family pool. However, we do not recommend prolonged periods of submersion.
Finally, the new RC-8 collar features a beautiful, nearly indestructible poly-elastomer strap that is integral with the collar casing. This makes the RC-8 THE most comfortable radio collar your dog can wear!
Reliable Base Station: Our Model TX-7 Replacement transmitter comes standard with all Humane Contain™ HC-7000 series electronic dog fences.
20 Acre Range: Few competing systems come close to this range. Of course the TX-7 works equally well on yards as small as 1/10 of an acre.
Variable Field Width Control: Allows you to precisely control the width of the signal field.
Audible and Visual Cable Break Indicators: Should your buried cable ever break, a loud sonic alarm will sound accompanied by a bright flashing LED lamp.
Power: This indicates the power mode, either AC or Back-up Battery. The TX-7 Base Station uses a “smart” power system.
If you have the optional 9 volt back-up batteries installed and there
is a power failure, the system automatically switches to battery
mode to keep the boundary field energized and your dog contained. In this mode all indicator lamps flash to conserve battery power. When power is restored, the system automatically switches back to
AC mode. The operating time of the Back-up Battery depends upon your field strength setting and the length of your boundary wire. Typical installations will operate for a full day in Battery Back-up mode.
Field Strength Control: You can control the distance from the boundary wire at which the receiver collar will begin to activate by use of the “FIELD WIDTH” dial. Turning the dial clockwise increases transmitter output power and
therefore, increases field width. The maximum field width possible will
depend upon your particular installation. It is affected by the depth at
which you bury the wire and the total length of wire used. The greater
the wire depth and length, the less maximum field will be available.
Generally, we recommend that you bury your boundary wire no more
than 4 inches deep and use no more than 2,500 feet of total boundary
wire. Typical installations yield a maximum possible field width of
approximately 25 feet. We recommend that you set the Field Width
of at least 5 feet. The wider your boundary field, the more time and
distance your dog has to properly react to the system. However, if space
limitations require a field width of less than 5 feet. You can reduce the
overall field width by turning the Field Width dial counter-clockwise.
When you vary the effective field width of your system, the HC-7000’s
unique Pulsed Proportional Stimulus System will automatically adjust to
the new field strength setting.
Quick Connect Wire Terminals: At the bottom of the Base Station Transmitter you will find two quick connect wire terminals. The boundary wire easily plugs into these terminals by simply depressing the tab and inserting the wire end. The
wire should be stripped by 1/2 inch at the end before insertion. No other
preparation is required.
Backup Battery Compartment:
On the right side of the BASE station transmitter you will find a
compartment to hold two standard 9 volt alkaline batteries for powering
the system when AC power is temporarily lost.
With all these features, you might expect to pay a lot more. We think you'll agree that this is a great value in a sophisticated underground fence transmitter base station.
