Easily locate cables and pipes with pinpoint accuracy
The variety and density of underground installation infrastructure continues to grow. Identifying buried installations has never been such a difficult and important task. Locating makes it possible to determine the actual position of an underground installation and to establish the correct place to start work, as well as to avoid dangerous accidents due to damage to the object being located.
The Sonel LKZ-2000 locating set has a number of unique features to help you choose the right locating mode. The most important feature that distinguishes the device from the competition is its ability to analyse interference occurring at the site, making it easier to select the best frequency in difficult conditions. This avoids selecting an inefficient frequency, significantly speeding up and simplifying the work with the locator.

The best system under the most demanding conditions
Sonel LKZ-2000 is designed to easily trace power cables over long and short distances with pinpoint accuracy, especially in areas with high levels of electrical interference. When used in conjunction with the supplied Multi Clamp a trace signal can be safely applied to an electrically live cable. The A-Frame accessory can also be used to easily locate cable sheath faults.
Civil engineering and construction industries
The highly durable, weatherproof Sonel LKZ system has a flexible operating system to suit most site conditions and terrain, which is essential on complex and demanding civil engineering and construction sites.
Damaging communication cables can be very costly and time consuming to repair, causing major disruption to the rail network. Sonel LKZ system is designed to easily locate and trace cables in congested areas and with high levels of electrical interference.
Tracing and locating large bundled cables, such as fibre optic cables, can be difficult and time consuming. Sonel LKZ systems high frequency modes are ideally suited for these types of cables, helping to improve your productivity and locating reliability of all cable types. The A-Frame accessory can be used to easily locate cable sheath faults.
Gas & oil industries
These can be the most potentially hazardous, costly or environmentally sensitive pipes to strike and therefore most important not to damage. Using the Sonel LKZ system’s range of low frequency modes, locating and tracing these pipes is easy over long distances, maintaining maximum accuracy.
Locating and tracing pipes can support the mapping and surveying of utilities. Using the Sonel LKZ system with our dual frequency sonde is the ideal solution for locating deep underground non-metallic sewerage and drainage pipes, that can’t be detected using standard locating technology.
