Pipe & Cable Locator XTpc

We're extending our
XT product line.
And we're finding all kinds of good stuff.

What else would you expect from the industry's leading innovator?


Schonstedt was the first to provide an RF link between transmitter and receiver—a major step forward in productivity. In 2003 we introduced the Schonstedt XT, the magnetic locator that single-handedly changed the way surveyors work. Now comes the XTpc—the first truly new advancement in pipe & cable locating in years.

Locating Tips: Pipe & Cable

Determining Target Depth by
Triangulation with the MAC-51Bx

The receiver can be used for the traditional triangulation method to determine the approximate depth of a target as illustrated in below. However, when using this method it is necessary to take into account the fact that the center of the cable-sensor is located 11 inches up the receiver tube from the black tip. When the position of the target has been determined by the null, mark the spot (#1) on the ground. Hold the receiver tip on the ground at this spot, slant the instrument at a 45o angle and slowly move directly back, to one side, from the target until a second null is obtained. Now mark a spot (#2) on the ground that is directly below a point 11 inches up the receiver tube from the black tip. Measure the distance between spot #1 and spot #2. This measurement indicates the approximate depth of the target.

NOTE
You should always take a depth reading on both sides of the line. If the measured distances between spots #1 and #2 on both sides of the line are not the same, there is a good chance that a nearby line is causing the two measurements to be different. Move further along the line and repeat the depth reading procedure until the measurements are the same on both sides of the line. Once two very similar measurements are obtained, the calculated depth of the cable will always be within 4 to 6 inches of its actual depth.
