Dynatel(TM) 2273E Cable Locator
The 3M™ Dynatel™ Locator 2273 is designed to find the path and estimated depth of buried cables and pipes and the ability to find underground faults.

Featured Benefits

  • 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
