Pipe and Cable Locator Sonde
- Type: Sonde, Small
- Used On: XTPC+, XTPC-82, XTPC-33 and XT-512 Pipe and Cable Locator
Due to the Nature and Strength of the Sondes Signal it is Necessary to have a General Idea of Where the Sonde is; Narrow the Search Area to a Circle of Several Feet that is Centered on the Sonde
Sondes, or transmitting beacons, are battery operated. Each sonde has a particular battery type that applies to specific applications for locating metallic or non-metallic pipes. Sondes in the hertz (Hz) range are beneficial for deeper applications that range from 5 to 16 feet and are capable of signal penetration through dense pipe materials, such as steel, cement and clay tile pipes. The performance of a sonde will be adversely affected if the battery charge is weak.
