The S+ Tek Transmitter is an end-game tool in ARK: Survival Evolved. It functions as a portable Obelisk.


Once you acquire the 'Tek Transmitter you are able to unlock the Tekgram for this structure.


  • Now features a Dino Scan via the radial menu that allows you to populate a list with all instances of a creature species, including its level and coordinates.
  • There are several "levels" to the S+ Tek Transmitter, depending on how many you have placed.
    1. Terminal Access
    2. Basic Scan/Remote Scan
    3. Scan Coordinates
    4. Scan Map
    5. Stats Display
    6. Remote Coordinates (Via the S+ Omni Tool)
  • Boss arenas can now be entered though the transmitter
  • Just like with regular Obelisks, you can upload items, characters and creatures and download them on other ARKs.
  • Any creatures must be rendered at least once before their level can be shown on the scanner. Otherwise, they stay in hibernation which also prevents known their exact location.
  • Some creatures spawn in groups, and the scanner will see a group of creatures as one. A group of creatures will have the "xN" suffix, showing how many are there in the group.
  • Scanning allows survivors to locate rare creatures without scouting the map, such as Quetzal, Giganotosaurus, and Alpha Predators.

Transmitter Power

Power is a different measure that equals to the sum of Transmitters × Number of Tek Generators powering it. This means using 4 Tek Generators to power 5 Transmitters(vice versa) would reach the highest power level of 20.

If the power level is not sufficient, the function unlock by Transmitter Count may not work on dinos afar.

With sufficient power level, the following function of scan will work on any distances:

  • 2 - Allow Scan
  • 6 - Rough Lat/Lon Coordinates
  • 12 - Map Guidance
  • 20 - Show Stats


  • The Tek Transmitter requires Tek Generator to Scan
  • Shooting at Tek Transmitter using Tek Rifle cause blood splatters instead default damage particles (like hitting by hand)
  • Items transferred through the transmitter can not be accessed from tribe mates
  • You can not travel to other servers with boss battle tribute items
