gives you a way of getting a signal onto a line when a direct
connection isn’t possible or doesn’t give you
the result you want.
Benefits of Induction:
1. Energize a conductor without physically
2. With proper transmitter management (placement,
orientation, aiming, frequency selection, power output) you
can determine which conductor gets the most signal and creates
the best locating circuit. Induction may, in some cases, help
isolate difficult (congested) circuits.
Induction can be used to sweep an area to see if any conductors
are present. If the likely direction of the pipe or cable
is known, two people can sweep, with one carrying the transmitter
and one carrying the receiver, as they walk in tandem. If
the receiver and the transmitter cross an underground conductor
at the same time it may be energized and show up on the receiver.
