Rex LITE Pipe & Cable Locator

A high-performance locator that’s lighter on the wallet and lighter to carry, but not lightweight in the field.

Since its launch in 2017, Schonstedt’s “Rex” pipe & cable locator has been enthusiastically embraced by the market. With a powerful, ultra-portable transmitter (5 watts and 100 volts, at just 3.5 lbs.), Rex got high marks for overcoming poor grounding, overcoming high impedance, and putting a strong signal on the target line.

For some locating jobs, all the power and multi-frequency capability of a Rex locator may not be called for. Therefore, Schonstedt is now offering “new version” of Rex, with one less frequency, a 1 watt transmitter, and a lower price tag (even vs. the XTpc). Naturally, we named it “Rex LITE“.
