The Schonstedt XTpc Pipe & Cable Locator Features

Schonstedt’s innovative designers have created the most portable locator available today. The XTpc delivers the only complete locator system which you can carry on your tool belt. You can fit the industry’s smallest transmitter in your hand or pocket.

The XTpc features simple one hand operation with all controls in easy reach of your thumb. The controls and the LCD display area are large and easy to understand. Clear direction arrows facilitate easy locating and foolproof centering.

The XTpc operates in passive mode, three different active modes (conductive, inductive and clamp), and a sonde mode.

This extremely versatile locator also features single button depth calculation. Simply place the receiver directly over the target and press the depth button.

The XTPC is made in two frequencies. In general, 82kHz is useful in tracing gas and water lines while 33kHz is a better choice for tracing electrical lines. You select a single frequency before purchase.
