Small transmitter systems & locators

A sonde is a 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.

The vLocCam2 locator is designed to locate pushrod camera sondes. It is equipped with the frequencies used by most other popular pushrod camera systems - 512Hz, 640Hz. It also includes 33kHz for locating the camera in deeper nonmetallic pipes. A passive power mode is included to locate signals radiating from adjacent pipes and cables, providing the user with an ability to sweep for these known and/or unknown utilities.
