The Sure-Lock multi-frequency pipe and cable locator is designed to increase locating accuracy and productivity. With frequencies ranging from 8.1K to 480kHz, a field technician can easily locate audio, radio and ultra-high frequencies. A unique feature of the All Pro is “continuous depth” readings. No need to press a button for your depth, a depth reading is continually displayed on the receiver as you near the target conductor. All Pro can provide you multi-frequency technology in a simple two-button operation, allowing your field technicians to become expert locators more quickly. 800.HEATH-US, www.heathus.com
