The Cable locator «Success CBI-116N» is the detective-diagnostic set, intended to survey
a terrain before digging or excavation, locating electrical cables and electrically conductive
underground utilities, determination of depth of their occurrence.
The principle of operation The principle of operation of the cable locator is based on phenomenon of electromagnetic
induction. The electromagnetic «EМD-247» sensor records variable electromagnetic field
which is being produced around a cable under research of it or a pipeline and converts an
electromagnetic signal into a power signal. An electrical signal enters the receiver, where it is
passing amplification and filtering (the selection signal of the given frequency. The location of
the maximum of electromagnetic field intensity measured above the ground, corresponds to the
axis of the desired communication. The operator on the signal in the head phones and the LED
indicator determines the location of the alignment and possible defects of communication.
