Pipeline and Cable Locators


3M Dynatel ™ Pipeline and Cable locators: a complete Pipeline and Cable Locator system for pipe damage prevention, cable locating, pipeline marking and mapping vital underground assets.

3M Dynatel ™ Pipeline and Cable locators sensor the ground and use a utility-specific radio frequency signal to locate markers. The Dynatel system enables you to accurately pinpoint cable depth, and our locators are unaffected by conduits, metallic conductors, fences, AC power or electronic markers from other utilities.  From finding the exact pipeline path and estimated depth of underground utilities, to locating buried passive markers, to reading and writing information directly to the new markers, 3M offers the precision tools needed to manage your pipeline and cable assets.

Dynatel Cable Fault Locators identify and measure points of cable damage where there is metallic contact to earth via a conductor or cable shield. They utilize our proven cable fault detection method with enhanced speed, sensitivity and noise rejection. Our multi-antenna design provides high accuracy and performance.
