Frequently Asked Questions

What is a magnetic locator?

A magnetic locator, also known as cable locator or underground utility locator, is used to detect pipelines and other objects underground to prevent accidents during excavation.

How do magnetic locators work?

Magnetic locators work by detecting the magnetic field around utility lines or other objects with ferrous metal content. This magnetic field is produced by a radio frequency, either passively or actively. For a more detailed explanation of how locators work, read this guide.

What can cause issues in magnetic locators?

A magnetic locator might become unresponsive due to dead batteries, leaking batteries, broken battery terminals, or loose connectors.

How do I use a magnetic locator?

After turning on the device, sweep it from side to side for optimal area coverage. The locator’s audio and digital indications and bar graph will peak if it detects a buried object. After detecting the object, move it to and fro in an X pattern to pinpoint small objects.

What are the best ways to maintain a magnetic locator?

While magnetic locators are typically water-resistant, it’s best to dry them after every use. Also, never use a locator with damaged batteries or other components. Always inspect your tool before using it.

Magnetic Locators

When an area has to be prepared for construction, it must first be cleared of any object located underneath the ground. This can prevent hazardous pipes and lines from getting damaged and can guarantee that there are no unseen hazards under the building being constructed. Locating metallic objects underground, such as steel or cast iron pipes and survey markers, doesn’t have to entail aimlessly digging and ruining the ground. With magnetic locators that can be ordered here on Engineer Warehouse, you can easily find target objects in no time. These magnetic locators feature digital bar graph displays for the precise identification of the target object even in congested areas filled with disturbance signals. Some of these locators can also detect if power lines are present in the area. Upon identifying the target object, an audio tone will then be activated to immediately inform users. Because these magnetic locators are used outdoors, they are powered by batteries that can last a long time. They also have waterproof tips so that they won’t get damaged in harsh outdoor conditions. For easy operation and handling, these magnetic locators are lightweight, and their button pads and handles are ergonomically designed.
