We hope our guide to cable detectors helps you make the right decision!
A cable detector is a safety tool used for detecting the presence and location of underground services before excavation works begin. Cable detectors allow workers to safely do their job without any major safety issues, injuries or costly damages.
Cable detectors are made up of two parts; the transmitter and receiver. 竞彩258平台An electric signal is transferred through a cable pipe by the transmitter and the receiver picks up the signal. This allows the operator to trace the signals path and detect the cable or pipe.
Buried cables and pipes can present a real hazard to construction workers and every year site workers are injured due to inadvertently striking buried utilities such as electricity cables or gas pipelines.
As industry standards get more and more regulated, it makes sense to buy the best and most recent cable and pipe location technology.
Some popular cable detector ranges include:
If you’ve decided you need a Cable Detector you’ve completed the first step. Next, you need to consider whether it's best to buy or hire your equipment.
To make this decision you must consider how often you will be using the tool. If you require a cable detector for a long period of time and will use it regularly, it's wise to consider buying it outright.
However, if you know you will only use it occasionally, hiring may be a better option.
We offer a hire or buy service of Survey and Safety equipment, including cable detectors and accessories.
