The 8856 Cable, Pipe and Fault Locator beats other locators on the market when it comes to price, durability and size
The 8856 Cable, Pipe and Fault Locator beats other locators on the market when it comes to price, durability and size.
This new addition to our locator product line is similar to our popular 8850. We have incorporated a few improvements to the 8856. The 8856 is designed to locate cables and pipes underground using either the nulling or peaking antenna. To benefit from both the nulling and peaking antenna, the user only has to flip the switch located on the back of the receiver. By having the choice of selecting nulling or peaking antennas, the user has more flexibility in locating the underground utility. The unit can be ordered with an optional Ground Return Probe (GRP), Cable Pair Identifier, Cable Identifier and/or Flexicoupler.
By attaching the optional accessories, the handheld locator is converted into a versatile piece of equipment. When the GRP is attached, it allows the user to locate ground faults. By connecting the Cable Pair Identifier, the user is able to identify a cable pair at the pedestal. The optional Cable Identifier accessory allows the user to search for a cable within a bundle of cables. The Flexicoupler can be attached to the transmitter for induction.
The 8856 is used to locate metallic cable and piping buried underground. The lightweight 8856 locator quickly picks up signals when the receiver is placed at waist level. This locating device is also able to locate around power lines without interference.
The 8856 Cable, Pipe and Fault Locator is not only lightweight, but also compact. The receiver and transmitter are housed within a single, durable, yellow case.
The 8856 contains variable pitch audiotone and analog meter movement to detect the location of the buried utility. Like the 8850, this locating device has two frequencies, 815 Hz and 82 kHz.
The 8856 can locate by direct connection, flexicoupler induction and transmitter induction. Depth measurements up to 15 feet can be accomplished by 45-degree triangulation or by using the straight lift method.
The 8856 Cable, Pipe and Fault Locator is another "BEST VALUE" from RYCOM Instruments.
