Amprobe AT-5000 Underground Pipe and Cable Locator

Product By Flir Logo

Buried utilities represent a major challenge to electricians who need to trace and troubleshoot such systems. They also represent a hazard to excavation crews. Improperly performed digging can cause cable or pipe damage resulting in personal injury, costly repairs and penalties. Using superior design and powerful software, the AT-5000 Pipe and Cable Locator offers several new performance features, establishing them as the new standard for locating and pinpointing faults in the underground systems. Distance sensitive left/right indication guides the user to the exact location of the buried utilities which saves time and effort not available on standard locators. The signal select and distortion alert provide superior accuracy by visually indicating a clean signal of the traced line, versus “ghost and ‘return’ path of false signals coming from the neighboring lines, and keeping the user on the target line. The core of the AT-5000 Pipe and Cable Locator system is the ergonomically designed handheld receiver. Designed for comfort, the lightweight receiver is balanced for all day use. The receiver’s bright color display is complete with intuitive, easily read graphics that can be viewed in all lighting conditions.
