CL 20 cable locator

The CL 20 cable locator comprising a transmitter and a receiver is used to determine the exact location of cables and metal pipes. The ability to determine laying depths of up to 4.5 m and to measure signal currents at the touch of a button allows you to obtain reliable information on the position of the cable within the shortest time.
Various modes and functions make it easy to adapt the device to the respective conditions in the field, making it suitable for universal use. Owing to the high power achievable at a low frequency (815 Hz), the cable locator CL 20 is especially suitable for locating longer cable lines, multiple earthed electrical lines and telephone cables, as well as CATV systems.
