PMIT807100 MIT Cable Detector MIT Cable Detector

Principle of Operation
Long cables and metal pipes act like a receiving antenna that are able to pick up electromagnetic fields (e.g. from long-wave transmitters). This leads to magnetic field noise generation around the cables.

The MIT-Cable Detector receives the magnetic noise and converts it into audible signals.
To perform a search, the device must be moved over the search area.
A sound signal indicates the localization of a cable.
Additionally, its depth can be determined by tilting the device. The supplementary transmitter also allows cables to be traced that emit only a weak signal.
Cables can be detected up to 2 mtrs. depth depending on the strength of the signal and/or if an additional transmitter will be used.

Antenna               Reception of electromagnetic noise signals of cables and metal pipes
Operating unit     Transformation of electromagnetic noises into accoustic signals
Headphones         Output of acoustic signals for locating cables and metal pipes

Additional Transmitter
The additional transmitter is used for active localization of cables or metal pipes that emit only a weak signal. It induces
a magnetic current within the cable/pipe to then locate or follow.
