SnapTrack 512 Hz Locator is a multifunctional drain camera beacon locator wand for detecting and pinpointing the location of a camera's remote transmitter that is integrated into a camera head or mounted on a separate push cable. The comfortable design allows the operator to use the sonde locator with ease.

The usefulness is furthered by multiple modes: Sonde mode with 512Hz, 640Hz, 815Hz, or 33kHz locating frequencies; Active locating mode, and Passive locating mode. The sonde mode is used to locate a sewer camera beacon with the matching frequency - ex. 512Hz sonde beacon and 512hz sonde mode. This mode is handy for locating the beacon in a sewer or drain pipe that is underground or in a wall. Once located, the locator can pinpoint it, thus giving an exact place where to start digging or tearing the wall.

To map out a sewer pipeline or a duct, the Active Mode is used with a frequency that matches the transmitter. In Passive 50Hz/60Hz mode, the locator can be used to detect primary and secondary powerlines and in some situations, to detect water lines, sewer pipes, and telephone cables. Pair the SnapTrack Sonde Locator with a camera system for a full visual inspection kit.
