Amprobe AT-5000 Underground Pipe and Cable Locator

Buried utilities represent a major challenge to electricians who need to trace and troubleshoot such systems. They also represent a hazard to excavation crews. Improperly performed digging can cause cable or pipe damage resulting in personal injury, costly repairs and penalties. The Amprobe AT-5000 Pipe and Cable Locator is fast and more accurate than what’s available on the market today.

Using superior design and powerful software, the AT-5000 Pipe and Cable Locator offers several new performance features, establishing them as the new standard for locating and pinpointing faults in the underground systems. Distance sensitive left/right indication guides the user to the exact location of the buried utilities which saves time and effort not available on standard locators.

The signal select and distortion alert provide superior accuracy by visually indicating a clean signal of the traced line, versus “ghost and ‘return’ path of false signals coming from the neighboring lines, and keeping the user on the target line.

The core of the AT-5000 Pipe and Cable Locator system is the ergonomically designed handheld receiver. Designed for comfort, the lightweight receiver is balanced for all day use. The receiver’s bright color display is complete with intuitive, easily read graphics that can be viewed in all lighting conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from realy unique I have used many other cable and pipe locators, but because of noise from other metal objects Iwas never sure about pinpointing job. but with AT-5000, the result is unbelievable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amprobe AT-5000 works great I work at a University and we have miles of buried pipes cables etc. With over 100 buildings it can be hard to find the pipes? A contractor was using an Amprobe AT-500 to help us find buried pipes. It worked so well I think we should purchase one so we won't need to have a contractor come in .

  • Locates underground energized and de-energized wires, cables and pipes, eliminates exploratory digging in parking lots or under floors for buried pipes and wires
  • New technology makes tracing much faster, accurate and unambiguous when compared to standard locators:
  • Signal select and distortion alert icon indicates clean signal of the traced line, versus “ghost and ‘return’ path signals coming from the neighboring lines
  • Forward-looking guidance coil alerts for bends and “T
  • Distance sensitive left/right guidance guides the user to the exact location of the buried utilities and eliminates “blind searches for the line
  • Three testing modes for best accuracy:
  • Passive power mode (50, 60, 100 and 120 Hz) – tracing energized lines conducting current
  • Passive radio mode (RF) – using surrounding radio waves to traceunderground object
  • Active mode - T-5000 signal generator with broad frequency selection between 491 Hz and 166 kHz with induction mode or directly connected to the cable with test leads or optional clamp
  • Active mode depth measurement up to 20’ (6m)
  • Bright color ¼ VGA receiver graphical display and audible signal indicators provide clear reading to the user
  • Strong testing signal generated by 10 watt variable output transmitter for dependable depth and distance locating
  • Powerful digital signal processing in both receiver and transmitter provides outstanding performance in tracing when compared to analog devices
  • Automatic or manual gain mode allows respectively quick and easy tracing of the line or precise pinpointing of the fault
  • Ground fault locating with A-Frame adapter for power and telecom cables (optional for AT-5000)
  • Precise pinpointing of buried services and exceptionally fast sound and meter response
  • Rugged durable construction, weatherproof and drop resistant to 3’
  • Includes receiver (R-5000), transmitter (T-5000), connection cable, ground stake, ground cable, and carrying case
