What do I do if I get the error code: TXOVL?

This means that the Transmitter is unable to lock on to a stable contact resistance. There are various things that can cause a varying contact resistance and they are all related to a loose electrode stake-to-ground contact.

Check for the following:

  • Check for a loose electrode stake. This connection must be solid.
  • Wind can cause cables to move which in turn will move the stake. Try to place electrode cables on flat ground rather than over a bush or tall grass to ensure that the cables do not move.
  • Traffic. Surveys performed close to a road can experience a similar "Wind" effect as the vehicle passes near the electrode cables.

NOTE: There are 3 error codes your SuperSting™ can generate: HVOVL, TXOVL and INOVL
