Underground Utilities Location Device

The Ditch Witch® organization announces the release of its new 250R/T locating system. The company says the 250R/T is one of the most efficient and cost-effective methods for locating and avoiding buried telephone, CATV, power, gas, and water lines. Consisting of a 250T transmitter and 250R receiver, this simple, lightweight system features intuitive controls, an easy-to-read display, and depth estimation up to 15 feet (4.6 m).

The dynamic range of the 250R/T is the best in its class, so it can locate even when signals are either very weak or very strong. Tones are derived from the actual signals radiating from pipes or cables, making it easy for even novice users to distinguish the signal from background noise. The display is backlit and reinforced with a scratch-resistant coating for optimal visibility day and night.

The 250T is ten times more powerful than other transmitters in its class. It can apply 33-kHz signals via direct connect, induction clamp, or other optional accessories. Even with its greater power, the 250R/T has two-thirds fewer components than similar models, meaning fewer chances of mechanical or electrical interruption. Further minimizing downtime is the system's rugged design and moisture-resistant cases that stand up to long-term use and tough weather conditions.
