Locating Underground Communication Lines
A California contractor called Encompass Inspections to perform utility locating for a 25 pair copper communication line along the west side of Pacific Coast Highway. They were concerned that the telecommunication line was on the far west side of the road nearly in the side of the cliff.
How We Responded
The utility locator used our RD8000 locator for this telecommunication line by clamping around the copper and also direct connecting to it. We also used our ground penetrating radar system GSSI to provide a better view of how the line ran and the depth of the 25 pair copper line.
Results We Delivered
With our RD8000 utility locator, we were able to direct connect to the 25 pair underground communication line, using our 33 channel frequency delivering a good signal for over a mile long without having any issue about dropping the signal or bleeding over with another line.
