Making Locating Easier for the Surveying Industry

Are you responsible for mapping of buried utilities, or need to pinpoint corner markers or property pins for plats and surveys? Schonstedt offers both magnetic locators and pipe and cable locators to detect ferrous objects, along with water, sewer, electrical, telecommunication or gas lines; on private property or for a subsurface utility engineering (SUE) project.

Magnetic Locators detect buried ferrous objects including markers, pins, PK nails, steel enclosures, reinforced tanks, vaults, steel pipe joints, valve and curb boxes (shut-off valves) up to 18′ deep. Magnetic locators react to the outline of a ferrous metal object to pinpoint its location with precision.

We offer a choice of five models: MAGGIE (pistol grip w/audio & display), Spot (“stick” w/audio), GA-52Cx (audio), GA-72Cd (most rugged w/audio & display) and GA-92XTd (extendable w/audio & display). For over 50 years, the GA-52Cx has been the preferred choice of surveyors around the world. The ultralight-weight Spot represents the “Next Generation Stick Locator”. The GA-92XTd allows for easier portability (expands and retracts). And MAGGIE blends the best of the GA-52Cx and GA-92XTd. All are backed with a Schonstedt 7-year warranty.

Combination Kits

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 those transmitting at 512 Hz.

The MPC-Rex Combo Kit is truly the one kit that finds it all, designed for utility locating professionals in Water • Sewer • Gas • Electric • Telecomm industries. The Kit includes a GA-92XTd Magnetic Locator and a Rex Multi-Frequency Pipe & Cable Locator and accessories. The entire system fits easily into a custom shoulder bag.

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 a 33 kHz transmitter and receiver — best for tracing electrical and telecommunication cables.

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 utilities and non-metal sewer pipes.

For non-metal 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.
