asian contec limited .Digital Cable Locating Set SLI Cable & Pipe Locator for location & pinpointing of underground Metallic utilities i. Signaling Cables.e Water Pipe. Power Cables. Gas Pipe.. base on electromagnetic. Armoured OFC etc.

Also provides depth when used with SGV. Signal clamp should be opted especially in telecom environments or survey environments where access / ability to directly connect to utility is not possible.e by simply keeping on the ground and inducing a signal into the utility for local blind searches. all units are IP65 water & dust proof. SGV has distinct pulse & continuous output modes allowing confirmation on utility being searched – can be used in both conductive i. the cable avoidance tool converts to a pipe & cable locator that route traces and underground pipes & Cables including power cables. telecom cables. asian contec limited .Digital Cable Locating Set Standard Product description Digital Underground Cable & Pipe locating receiver & Cable Avoidance Tool with standard 3 modes of operation P/R/G that provide location and avoidance of underground power cables when used in Power Mode.e direct connection mode and inductive i. dead cables etc. data cables. pipes etc in Generator mode.. When used in conjunction with the SGV signal generator. A second radio mode allows detection of non current carrying utilities such as pipes.

Case moulded from High impact sealed to IP65 Industry standard water & dust proof Clearly laid out functions with LCD display for clear display of mode of operation .

asian contec limited MXL Locator . ensuring great efficiency in operation of the instrument.Operating modes : The instrument provides 4 different Operating modes to locate or trace buried metallic services: Power mode : for detecting power cables. operating at standard 50Hz. or may be outside of the frequency range of other search modes. whether carrying current or not Multifrequency transmitter mode : for route tracing of specific cables even in congested areas at 32678Hz. 8192Hz and 512 (or 640Hz) All scan mode : The Allscan mode with controllable sensitivity is an extremely important mode that allows the operator to search in all frequencies in the range of 50Hz to 33kHz even detecting signals missed by other search modes. Radio mode : for detecting metallic services.

B.Operating modes : • The transmitter power is designed for very long distance tracing in telecommunications networks. especially applicable when tracing services over longer distances or at a greater depths. Double confirm that the trace being carried out is for the correct specific cable desired. MXT –transmitter asian contec limited . • The MXT transmitter also provides a very unique feature of continuous and pulse output settings which allows the operator to : A. from low to high. Distinguish from unwanted interference . • The transmitter has four selectable output power levels.

The MXT transmitter works in conjunction with the MXL Locator . There are two methods by which the transmitters signal can be applied to buried services. 33kHz. Conductive line tracing (for direct connection. wherein the transmitter is connected to the cable end using mains signals inject) Inductive line tracing induce a signal into buried metal service remotely from the surface without physically connecting (where a cable end is not available) asian contec limited . the MXT offers the operator three transmitter frequencies. 8kHz and 512 Hz (or 640 Hz). When operating in transmitter mode.

Power requirements 8x AA battery capsule Built in secondary spare battery pack * upto 40 hours intermittent usage 4 x D cell battery capsule * Units are compatible with NiMh asian contec limited rechargeable batteries .

asian contec limited ..FAQ’s: Q#1 What is does? A#1 Hitting and damaging buried services when excavating can result in costly repairs and major disruptions at work sites. Identify & Trace Pipe and cable networks. The best way to avoid damaging buried services is to pinpoint their exact position. • Using Cable & Pipe locator we can pinpoint underground Metallic utilities • Detect. route and depth BEFORE work begins.

I found a utility in Power Mode does it means the utility detected is Power Cable? A#3 Q#4 I am in a city where all power cables are overhead only (No underground cable laid) still I am getting signals in power mode? Why? asian contec limited .FAQ’s: Q#2 Can we locate Fibre optic line with locators? A#1 Yes if they are Armored. Q#3 I am using locator.
