Schonstedt Locator Trade-In Special: Trade In Any Brand in Any Condition

Please contact Berntsen Customer Service at 1-800-356-7388 to inquire about trade in.



Utility Pipe & Cable Locators

Schonstedt's locators have been setting the standard for reliability and dependability for nearly a half century. Schonstedt's Pipe & Cable Locators are extremely effective and versatile tools for locating underground utilities including cable TV lines, fiber optic lines, gas lines, irrigation lines, tracer wire, power lines, streetlight wiring, water lines and sewer lines.

When you need to find a pipe or cable underground, our locators help you find it faster and easier. Schonstedt products are designed to withstand the rigors of daily field usage in a wide range of environmental conditions.

Schonstedt's Principles of Pipe & Cable Locating

Pipe and Cable Locators have both a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter induces an electric charge to an object which is detected by the receiver. The transmitter is like a radio station that's putting out a signal which is picked up by the receiver. Just like radio stations, transmitters use different frequencies.
