12 Hz sondes and many other 512 Hz transmitted devices work with any Schonstedt pipe & cable locator model. Sondes benefit a variety of industry applications. In water & sewer, they can help pin-point blockages or pipeline defects when used with video inspection systems. You can trace a path and determine the depth of a non-metal pipe such as HDPE, PVC, transcite or clay tile. In cable applications they can be used to trace empty fiber-duct or adjacent conduit runs and stop at unmarked underground vaults or splice boxes. The depth accuracy of a sonde’s position can help reduce excavation costs and time. Depending on frequency, a self-contained battery powered sonde can be detected as deep as 15 ft.
- Utility locators that use Sondes are helpful for the following:
Water & Sewer Locator– Detect position of blockages and locate pipe defects, transition points or other areas of interest within the pipeline infrastructure. Locate non-metal pipes via an open access point or clean-out.
Telecom – Path of empty fiber-duct
Electrical – Path of empty conduit runs
Plumbing – Locate the path or blockage of a poly pipe to septic tank or field
Industrial – Pipeline process inspection work
Gas – Pipeline integrity project work; Pipeline pig tracking (w/ 512 Hz transmitted sonde)
