PL-2000 Multifrequency Pipe and Cable Locator

The PL-2000 multifrequency pipe and cable locator is a very durable unit that is a work of art in its simplicity of use and sophistication of operation. It is unique in that it offers four modes: peak, null, distance and sonde. Plus, it’s a workhorse, offering three active frequencies, two passive frequencies, four modes of operation and both inductive and direct connection capabilities. And all its components are housed in a well-protected, lightweight and easy-to-use design.

Additional product info

Product details

  • PL-2000 transmitter has 3.0 watts power output in the Direct Connection mode; allowing locates for much longer distances.
  • The lightweight, balanced receiver offers four different operating modes.
  • Three “active” frequencies at a nominal 0.5 kHz, 8 kHz and 27 kHz, plus two “passive” frequencies – the 50/60 power and radio passive
  • Select the “Mix” mode at the transmitter and transmit all active frequencies simultaneously in the “Direct Connect” mode
  • Detects and reports “poor ground” conductivity at the transmitter in Direct Connection
  • Current measurement in the “Depth” function can verify you are tracing the correct line in congested utilities
  • “Auto Off” functions in both the transmitter & receiver shut off their operations after a user defined time period of non-use
  • Optional Equipment for PL-2000 Direct Inductive Clamp.

Package includes

  • Receiver
  • Tansmitter
  • Ground Stake
  • Direct Connection Cables
  • Instruction Manual
  • Padded Carrying Case
  • Instruction Manual


Key Features

  • The PL-2000 Low Transmitter has 3.0 watts power output in the Direct Connection Mode, allowing locates for much longer distances than the lower power typical in other transmitters.
  • The light-weight, balanced PL-2000 Receiver, offers 4 different operating modes: “Peak” mode, for the most accurate locates and for depth measurement; “Null” mode, for fast, easy tracking; “Dist” mode, for even longer distances; “Sonde” mode, for locating sewer sondes and measuring their depths.
  • The PL-2000 has 3 “active” frequencies at 512 Hz, 8.125 kHz, and 26.725kHz; plus 2 “passive” frequencies at 50/60 Hz (current flowing A/C) and Radio (15 khz – 25 kHz).
  • Simultaneously transmit all 8.125 kHz, 26.725 kHz, and .5kHz in the “Mix” mode in the Transmitter.
  • Detects poor “ground” conductivity at the Transmitter in the Direct Connection operating mode.
  • Current measurement in the depth function indicates if the measured depths are correct for congested utilities.
  • “Auto Off” functions in both the Transmitter and Receiver shut off their operations after a set time period if they are accidentally left “On”.
