Loki is designed for utilities and construction crews seeking a user-friendly, lower-cost alternative to higher-end pipe and cable locators.

A multi-frequency pipe and cable locator designed to “sweep” large areas to quickly and easily locate buried assets, Loki combines new and innovative features to find buried pipes and cables more efficiently.

Available in two models:

  • Contractor: 512 Hz, 8 kHz & 131 kHz 
  • Utilities: 512 Hz, 8 kHz & 82 kHz; capable of detecting multiple sonde frequencies

New features that facilitate accurate locating:

  • Dual Mode: Simultaneously search for and identify transmitter and power signals for quick and accurate sweeps, prior to excavation.
  • ShallowAlert: Audio and visual warning when a cable or pipe less than 12” deep is detected.
  • NoiseProtect: Automatically manages the system gain to compensate for strong signals, e.g. from mains power or substations.
