The Dual Frequency Metallic Locator features two active frequencies and is designed for local field conditions to achieve performance and speed locating of metallic conductor, buried or in-wall. The transmitter can be connected directly to the pipe, cable, or other conductor, or it can apply the signal inductively, without touching the conductor.

The product's 2048Hz low frequency is optimal for direct connections and offers reduced false coupling of the signal with adjacent pipes and cables. It also provides for a large transmission distance of the locating signal. The 33kHz high frequency is suited for applying the locating signal by induction, or for high-resistance lines. The high frequency also allows the signal to jump insulators, bad or high-resistance connections, and rubber gaskets in pipes.

The probe picks up signals while held waist-high, eliminating bending while walking the cable run. Additionally, the product comes with a bubble level to speed depth calculations via triangulation, and the unit is moisture-resistant. The transmitter operates on eight C cells, and the receiver uses a 9V cell.
