LTS system

LTS system for locating pinpoints and routes

Stable and flexible fibreglass push cable with a small bending radius

With the universal LTS locating systems, it is possible to locate pinpoints – e.g. for localising defective points in pipe systems or obstructions, drops of pipe pieces etc. – and also routes for determining pipe plans.

Model: Compact carrying frame suited for use on construction sites. Fibreglass cable lined with polypropylene with integrated copper wires, ø 4.5 mm. End point detection coil, connection box with sleeves and pins for connecting two transmitters, protective coated steel pipe frame and ø 400 mm reel.

All LTS models are fitted with a slip ring so that it is even possible to feed the probe cable when the transmitter is connected.

Locating routes

Locating routes

Copper conductors are built into the fibreglass cable of the locating systems, which, when connected to the transmitter, emit a locatable signal along the entire length of the cable. To do so, a transmitter cable is connected at the LTS and the second is grounded.

Locating pinpoints

Locating pinpoints

A probe is attached to the push cable head of the LTS devices, which is easy to locate due to a particularly strong field. The transmitter is connected via two cables at the connection box of the LTS.

The illustrations show an ST-510 transmitter and SR-24 receiver by way of example. Both locating systems allow the use of common transmitters and receivers in the 33 kHz range.

Extreme shear stability with small bending radii at the same time
The push cable profile of the LTS systems consists of a special combination of fibreglass cores with integrated copper wires and a protective polypropylene sleeve, which combines the pushing stability of a stiff rod with the flexibility and small bending radius needed from experience. Thus, the cable can also be hand-fed in complex, laid pipe systems quickly, easily and precisely.
LTS system for locating pinpoints and routes
The complete location can be done by just one person. The areas of application of the LTS locating devices include all areas of civil engineering, for example drainage and fresh water management, cable laying or drainage and landfill work.
