About Pipe & Cable Locators
Schonstedt’s Pipe & Cable Locators (aka “utility locators” or “cable line detectors”) have been setting the standard for reliability and dependability in locating buried utilities: water pipes, sewer, cable, and gas lines—quickly and easily.
In standard applications, Pipe & Cable Locators utilize both a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter induces an electric current that circulates through an object creating a magnetic field, which is then detected by the receiver.
Schonstedt offers several models of pipe and cable locators:
The Rex Locator
Rex is Schonstedt’s Multi-Frequency Pipe & Cable Locator that comes with a powerful 5W Transmitter. The sleek design of the transmitter is less than 2” thick and weighs less than 3 lbs. At slightly over 7 lbs., the entire system fits easily into a custom shoulder bag.
Price. MSRP for Rex $2,902. Click here for Rex details and to buy online.
