Sondes from Vivax-Metrotech are small self-contained battery powered transmitter that can be located by a compatible pipe locator receiver. Sondes are typically used to locate non-metallic pipe, drains, sewer or duct.
The sonde is propelled along the non-metallic pipe using conventional drain push rods, or pipe inspection camera systems. Sondes are also used to trace non-metallic sewers, drains, ducts or pipes and to pinpoint blockages or collapses.

Be sure the representative has a website that you can visit to view all the line locator equipment they sell. When purchasing an underground line locator, make sure you are working with a factory authorized specialist that offers free on-site demonstrations, not just a manual or CD.
A huge bonus is the specialist offers free on site training, not only after the sale, but yearly training for the life of the equipment. This goes a long way as your company may have promotions and new employees. This is very important at 3 a. Never purchase an underground line locator without a free on site demonstration, even if you are purchasing from the same manufacturer you have purchased from before.

There may be upgrades and changes in technology that are unfamiliar to you. Remember, you want the most advanced technology for your technicians. This tells your technicians you care about them and how they perform their job. Ask your representative if the line locator transmitter and receiver have multiple frequencies and multiple power levels.
This is important for long range locates and difficult locates. Also ask if the receiver will locate and sonde locate. If you are an electric utility, ask if the system has a volt ohm meter and can fault find and locate at the same time.
These features can cut your fault finding capabilities time in half. Make sure you are purchasing an underground line locator system that is upgradable, both transmitter and receiver, preferably over the internet. This way you do not have to send in the system to a service center and more importantly you can eliminate downtime. One very important point, make sure this is a free upgrade. A multi year warranty is also highly recommended. Make sure the locating system has dynamic overload protection.
This is very important for the operator to use on difficult locates with excessive signals present. A good example of this is high voltage overhead lines and underground lines. In other words, make sure you are working with a company that truly has the knowledge about locating and your needs. Ask about what accessories are available.
Be sure to ask about all accessories, they may save your company time and money. Ask about line locator equipment repairs. Ask if they will give you a free loaner to use while your system is in for repairs.
If you do not have the time to pack up and ship the locating system, ask your representative if they will pick up and deliver after the repair is made.
Make sure the company you are purchasing from gives you the customer service you deserve. Call us today at to purchase from the best in the industry!Need a handheld locator to go with your Kyrie Cam?

NaviTrack Scout Brochure Tracing buried pipes and cables, whether to locate faults or to avoid utilities during excavation work, can present major difficulties. This can be made even worse in cases where a pipe has rubber seals, insulators or even gaps between sections. These problems, if not overcome, can result in costly repairs, delays and in some instances personal injury. The RD Series has been designed to address these issues, specifically addressing the concerns and challenges of users such as those in the Water and Gas Industries locating buried pipes and cables.
Guidance Mode allows you to rapidly follow the path of a buried utility. Visually indicates orientation of the target cables. Allows the operator to quickly and easily follow the target line. Maximizes depth measurement accuracy by ensuring the locator is correctly with the target line. Extends the RD's locate capability into areas where other products fail. Automatically filters out large and unwanted signals while ensuring accurate location of the target utility.
Particularly useful in electrically noisy environments such as power sub stations or near overhead high-voltage cables.
When in Guidance Mode a continuous tone to the left of the target and an intermittent tone to the right helps guide you towards the target.
Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery options for both locator and transmitter provide extended runtime with reduced running costs. Less time walking and more time locating.
