The 3M™ Dynatel™ Locator 2250/2273 Series is designed to find the path and estimated depth of buried cables and pipes.

  • Four active trace frequencies which can be used individually or simultaneously to compensate for varying field conditions. The receiver incorporates passive power and auxiliary frequencies that do not require the use of the transmitter.
  • Graphic display to distinguish between targeted cable and other cables in congested area.
  • Four modes of operation - dual peak, dual null, differential and special peak - for accurate locates, even in the most challenging field conditions
  • Precisely locates sheath or ground faults on both short and long cable sections.

  1. What is the 3M™ Dynatel ™ Pipe/Cable/Fault Locator 2273-U5T3/A used for?

    The 3M™ Dynatel ™ Pipe/Cable/Fault Locator 2273-U5T3/A is a device that provides underground cable and pipe locating, fault finding and marking capabilities.

  2. How does it work?

    It works by using two units - a transmitter and receiver. The transmitter applies a signal onto the cable or pipe so that it can be traced, while the receiver sensitivity settings detect electromagnetic fields generated by energy flowing through conductive lines.

  3. Is this device easy to operate?

    Yes, absolutely! Designed with user-friendliness in mind, it features an easy-to-read display screen and simple buttons to navigate through the menu options.

  4. Can you tell me more about its accuracy level?

    Sure thing! The equipment’s precision is known to lay within inches of buried utilities making this ideal for high-precision applications like fiber network deployment.
