Product Description

PLEASE NOTE: THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED – Please contact us if you would like a recommendation of a unit to replace this model.

The Subsite 950 pipe and cable locator system offers a simple and safe solution to finding and tracing buried services up to a depth of 4.6 metres.

The three modes and 20 frequencies of the 950R/T system help you quickly locate buried telephone, CATV, power, gas and water lines: Active — 950T and 970T transmit via direct line connection, induction clamp or induced broadcast signals; simultaneous 8 and 29 kHz transmission makes an alternate signal available if one is hard to detect, while higher frequencies help locate metallic lines with insulators that weaken or block low frequencies; Passive — 950R detects signals generated by 31 kHz (CATV) and 50/60 Hz power, as well as re-radiated radio frequencies; Beacon — 950R detects signals from optional beacons to locate non-metallic service lines; with the 512 beacon, the 950R locates blockages within cast-iron pipe.

Features – Subsite 950 pipe and cable locator system

  • Lightweight 950R receiver is balanced for easy handling.
  • Enhanced, backlit LCD offers optimal visibility in low-light conditions.
  • 950T and 970T’s rugged case and sealed keypad withstand tough weather conditions and provide superior moisture resistance.
  • Patented digital signal processing (DSP) offers more effective locating and reduces interference; stable DSP depth readings do not vary with temperature or time, as analog readings do.

Note :
1 Power mode is used to locate all live cables with sufficient current flow
2 Radio mode is used to locate any metallic service carrying a (VLF) very low frequency signal
The 250 has a specifically strong radio mode signal which makes it a very popular model
3 If the Metallic Pipe has a Current then the 150 can detect it in Power Passive mode
4 Active mode is used in conjunction with the Transmitter to locate and trace a specific service.
The Transmitter is an Optional Accessory
5 The 950 has a large range of Transmitter frequencies which is used when cables are congested and there is a chance of “bleeding” i.e. current jumping from one cable to another
6 Beacon Mode is used for Non Metallic pipes where you create a signal by inserting the beacon / sonde into the non-metallic pipe e.g asbestos, PVC or plastic The beacon is an optional accessory and needs to be purchased separately
