Copperhead ViperMag™ Complete Utility Locating System Application:

Pipe and Cable Locator for Protecting Underground Utility Assets Used in these Markets:

  • Natural Gas (Not for gas leak detection. Does not locate gas.)
  • Water and Sewer

This combination utility locator and ferrous metal detector is designed to locate buried pipes and cables and to detect buried ferrous metal objects such as valve box covers and buried tanks. The one-watt transmitter applies a locate frequency by direct connection or induction.

Optional induction clamps can be used to clamp around a line and induce the locate signal onto it. Metal Detector – Advanced filtering rejects materials such as bottle caps and aluminum cans and zeros in on only ferrous materials. Manual gain control allows it to be controlled and work closely to large metal objects such as automobiles and chain link fences while still detecting targets underground. Will locate through asphalt, concrete, and in temporary conditions such as snow.
