- Additional information
PL18-10 is a small pipe transmitter sonde which is an efficient accessory for the Vesala CL43 Compact Locator and other Vesala cable tracers using the 10kHz tracing frequency.
Using a pipe transmitter sonde
PL18-10 powers on when the battery compartment is turned to the transmitter section. Sonde is attached to the push rod (snake) with the M12 threaded sleeve of the battery compartment or with tape. After that the sonde is pushed into the target pipe using the push rod.
To avoid loosing signal e.g. at corners the sonde is traced with a cable tracer receiver along as it moves ahead. If sonde hits an obstacle or blockage, it´s possible to define the location and depth very accurately, which reduces unnecessary digging.
PL18-10 has a red power-on LED at the side of the sonde. LED goes off if battery is weak. PL18-10 diameter is 18.2mm and length with standard battery compartment 98mm. Transmitted signal is interrupted 10 kHz.
PL18-10 replaces the previous models PL20-10 and PL-10.
This Vesala product is made in Finland.
