The TW-6 pipe and cable locator finds underground pipes, cables, manhole covers, vaults, valve boxes, and other
The TW-6 pipe and cable locator finds underground pipes, cables, manhole covers, vaults, valve boxes, and other metallic objects. The model is used primarily by water departments, telephone companies, power companies, gas companies, and petroleum pipeline companies when making repairs and rearranging lines. The unit shows where to dig, as well as where not to dig, an important consideration when working near gas lines. It performs inductive locating, inductive tracing, and conductive tracing. Features include:
Crystal-controlled frequency in both transmitter and receiver for longer tracing distance
Voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) for a wide signal range to indicate metal
Signal increases in pitch and volume over metallic object
Noise canceling circuitry eliminates power-line interference
Weighs only 5.5 lb.
