Network detector and transmitter
Locators are used to detect buried conductive networks emitting an electromagnetic signal generated by the current flowing through them.
Transmitters are used to apply a distinct signal to conductive networks that do not emit electromagnetic signals or to be monitored for a specific purpose. The transmitter is required for depth or current measurements.
The locator and transmitter described in this manual greatly facilitate the detection process and help reduce the dangers and costs of unexpected network encounters. The type of electromagnetic location, however, depends on the conductivity of the networks (if they are metallic) and the emission of a signal when they are traversed by a current.
It should not be forgotten that a locator alone can not detect all networks, so that the excavations must be carried out with care and caution. It is generally the practice to employ a safe working method, including work planning in advance, use of network plans, use of locators and transmitters, and the use of safe practices. Excavation.
Warning: The absence of a positive indication does not guarantee that no network is buried there. Networks not emitting any detectable signal may be present. The locator can not detect nonmetallic networks (such as plastic pipes), which are generally used by the water and gas networks, only if appropriate accessories are used. Precautionary measure: Excavation should always be carried out with caution.
