Are you responsible for contract locating? Involved with Damage Prevention, the ONE CALL or 811 (Call Before You Dig) process? And need to identify all underground utilities before excavating? Schonstedt offers both magnetic locators and pipe and cable locators to fit every need in the power industry and electrical contractor services field.
Magnetic Locators detect buried steel objects including enclosures, vaults, manhole covers, pipe joints, valve and curb boxes at maximum depths of 10-15 feet. Magnetic locators react to the outline of a ferrous metal object to pinpoint locations, We offer a choice of three models: GA-52Cx (audio), GA-72Cd (audio and display) and GA-92XT (audio or audio/display), a more portable model. The GA-92XT is best for portability, hands-free use (holstered) and requires minimal storage in a contractor's vehicle.
Pipe & Cable Locators detect the path and depth of power cables, telcom (telephone, catv and fiber optic (FO) cables with metal shield, armor jacket or tracer-wire. Pipe & Cable Locators are able to detect cables or metallic pipes through any surface to a maximum depth of 20 feet. Cables can be energized or de-energized. Passive feature is available on all models. There are three Schonstedt models: XTpc-82 or XTpc-33 for speed and accuracy over short distance locates with minimum difficulty, and the Tracemaster II for more congested underground situations or large scale projects that demand the flexibility to change transmitter frequency -- from very low frequency (575 Hz) to reduce bleed-off and achieve greater distance, up to very high frequenccy (455 kHz) for sweeps. All models can detect cables, wires or pipe by means of conductive (directly connected) and inductive (in-direct) modes. An Inductive Clamp is the quickest and easiest method to trace cables from meters, junction boxes, poles and pedestals.
Magnetic and Pipe & Cable Locator Kits - MPC kits combine the best of both worlds while saving time & effort — all in one convenient hard-case for limited storage areas. Consisting of an XTpc utility locator and a GA-92XTd magnetic locator, these kits detect and locate all objects described above as well as all those transmitting at 512 Hz. The MPC-800 kit comes with an 82 kHz transmitter and receiver — best for tracing gas, water and sewer pipelines. The MPC-300 kit comes with an 33 kHz transmitter and receiver — best for tracing electrical and telecommunication cables. The MPC-500 kit comes with a 512 Hz receiver only — best for pinpointing 512 Hz sources such as inspection cameras, boring systems and mini-sondes (beacons or moles) attached to duct rodders, plumber snakes or fish tape.
Pipe & Cable & Sonde locator - The PCS-800 combines the versatility of the XTpc-82 utility locator along with a choice of 512 Hz sonde (beacon or mole). A great tool for water/sewer crews, construction & excavation contractors and home service professionals needing to trace various utilties and non-metal sewer pipes.
Schonstedt also offers a range of sondes (aka mini-transmitters; moles or beacons) that work with our pipe and cable locators for even greater accuracy through empty pipes. Click here to learn more about Schonstedt sondes.
