Are you responsible for water/wastewater mains and services or identifying other underground utilities? Schonstedt offers both magnetic locators and pipe and cable locators to fit every need in the water and sewer industry.
Magnetic Locators for water and sewer applications detect manhole covers, valve or curb boxes, shut-off valves, iron pipe joints, drain grates, reinforced septic tanks at maximum depths of 15-17 feet. Magnetic locators react to the outline of a ferrous metal object to pinpoint locations, reduce random digging, and saving time. 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.
Pipe & Cable Locators detect the path and depth of ductile iron, straight steel, lead, copper or any other metal constructed pipe used on mains and water distribution services. Pipe and cable locators also detect tracer wire or detectable metal tape (aka mule tape) buried alongside non-metal pipes systems constructed of transcite, HDPE, PVC, clay tile or cement at a maximum depth of 20 feet. Two Schonstedt models: XTpc-82 for quick, short distance locates with less difficulty and the Tracemaster II for more congested underground situations or large scale projects demanding more flexibility to change transmitter frequency or power level settings to improve accuracy. Both models can detect the pipeline or wire by means of conductive (directly connected) and inductive (in-direct) mode.
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 situations. Comprising an XTpc utility locator and GA-92XTd magnetic locator, these kits detect and locate all objects described above in Magnetic and Pipe & Cable applications as well as all 512 Hz transmitted sources. 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 an 512Hz receiver only — best for pin-pointing 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 512Hz sonde (beacon or mole). 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. Click here to learn more about Schonstedt sondes.
