July 13, 2002
The Ridgid® Navitrack™ line locator helps locate pipe, cable, and utility lines underground. In addition, it can locate underground cast iron pipes, water lines, electrical lines, telephone lines, and other metallic cables when they are energized. According to the manufacturer, the unit quickly and accurately pinpoints the precise location and depth of a transmitter in buried pipes and drains, and guides even inexperienced operators to the exact location of the target with its large, real-time liquid crystal mapping display. The search mode uses gauges and audio signals to guide the user to the target area, the map mode locates the transmitter and maps the direction of the pipe, and the trace mode locates energized lines and power lines, says the company.
