Cable Avoidance & Detection - UTILIFINDER+
Easy to use cable avoidance around properties – Saving lives, reducing damage costs
The UTILIFINDER+ is a unique solution for detecting electrical cables, water pipes and telecom cables. Its dual mode functionality also allows it to be used with a Sonde to trace drains and sewers underground. Like the UTILIFINDER+, it is very simple and intuitive to use.
When switched to 33kHz Mode, the UTILIFINDER+ can be used to trace signals transmitted along connected utilities. These signals are emitted from the UTILIGEN signal generator plugged into a 13 amp power socket. The UTILIFINDER+ can be used to find isolated and electrical utilities and trace signals generated by a Sonde, when it is in "AUTO" mode.

The UTILIFINDER+ - Overview
Step 1 - Plug-in
Plug UTILIGEN into wall and turn on power. Green light confirms that power cables can be traced. Blue light indicates that some other services can be traced.
Step 2 - Activate
Squeeze trigger to turn on UTILITRACE. LCD activates.
Step 3 - Search
Hold UTILITRACE vertically, sweep the ground in a zig zag pattern, covering the whole area. When the visual and audible signals are at the highest you are directly over a buried service.
Step 4 - Mark
When the bar graph is at it's highest point you are directly over the service and should mark the ground. Joining your marks indicates the path of the service.

HSG47: Avoiding danger from underground services
By law, breaking ground requires the use of a cable locating device to obtain accurate information about the location of buried utilities in order to protect employees and equipment during any excavation project.
