Loki is a multi-frequency, low cost pipe and cable locator solution used in avoiding buried cables and pipes during excavation, reducing the risk of injury to personnel and damage to utilities. Designed to detect the path and depth of a range of high and low frequency pipes and cables, Loki has a wide range of applications. From use by a home owner to utility or construction crews in more congested environments, Loki has the flexibility to change transmitter frequency to assist in the pipe and cable location process.
Loki represents the latest evolution of locators, combining new and innovative features, designed to deliver optimal performance, higher levels of safety, advanced features and at competitive cost of ownership.
Contractor Model: Targeted at home contractors and construction crews, the contractor model has been optimised for excavation and construction at home, as a tool within a home contractor’s toolbox to sweep an area prior to excavation.
Built within the Loki transmitter are 512 Hz, 8 kHz and 131 kHz frequencies. The higher frequency 131 kHz can be used to find well-insulated, high impedance utilities such as twisted-pair telecom cables or insulated pipe joints. A lower frequency of 512 Hz is also built in to support the long range locating of lower impedance cables, such as power lines.
Utilities Model: With a wide range of active frequencies, and the ability to locate multiple sonde frequencies, the utilities model is built for the challenge of detecting and tracing buried water/ drain pipes and telecom ducts.
Targeted at wastewater municipalities and other utility companies, the utilities model low 512 Hz frequency can be used to trace metallic pipes, whereas the higher 82 kHz frequency can support the detection of jointed pipes, non-metallic pipes and ducts.
