TOMKAT SD Cable Avoidance Tool


Complete with:



Ground Stake

Connecting Cables

Induction Clamp

Carry Bag

With the ever increasing requirements for more information the new

TOMKAT SD data logger with depth estimation is now available.

The TOMKAT sd is a depth estimating data logging software calibrated

cable locator incorporating an OLED display.

With this locator you can download to an excell spread sheet the date and

time and how long the locator is used. 

To complement the TOMKAT SD data logger is the all new SIGEN' hl signal


The SIGEN' hl signal transmitter incorporates high and low volume as well

as intermittent & continuous outputs at the push of a switch.

The TOMKAT sd data logger along with the SIGEN' hl offer many features

designed to assist in the avoidance of buried services.

Buried Line Locator

LED and LCD signal strength indicators make it quick and easy to find exact line location.

Lightweight and ergonomically balanced.

Automatic signal boost makes it easy to trace lines, even those with very weak signals.

Receiver may be used in active or passive mode.

Receiver locates multiple passive frequencies with a single setting.

Receiver automatically locks out passive range when it detects a transmitter signal, reducing the chance of tracing other lines carrying weaker signals.
