Cable locator

Dynatel 2250 series cable locator traces the path of underground copper and fiber-optic cable. Weighing 50% less than previous units, the series consists of a digital transmitter with built-in ohmmeter and a one-piece digital handheld receiver. The unit locates the cable path and measures cable or sonde depth, providing a digital readout in inches, feet and inches, or cm on an LCD display. It also measures signal current, identifies cable and cable pairs, and locates energized power cables. The receiver has four modes of operation--dual peak, dual null, differential or special peak. When used with the 2205/2206 accessory, the locator can pinpoint the location of buried EMS markers and trace a cable path simultaneously. Model 2250E features a passive 15- to 30-kH¥broadband receiver that locates cables without using a transmitter.
