Description

The Flexitrace system gives a compact and labour saving solution when locating non-metallic ducts and drains. This provides the benefits of a sonde and a continuous trace system in one compact unit. An improved coil size of 8.3mm diameter allows far better flexibility when rodding through small diameter ducts, 1/2 inch (12.7mm) water and gas pipes, including the joints and bends on those pipes down to a bend radius of approximately 250mm.

There are two main methods to use the Flexitrace:

  1. SONDE MODE
    To locate the sonde within a non-metalic duct or drain, you need to energise the end coil, to activate the sonde. This is done by connecting both of the Flexitrace’s terminals to the generator. This will allow you to determine the end point and the depth of your duct or drain.
  2. LINE MODE
    To locate the direction of the non-metalic duct or drain, attach a signal generator to one of the terminals of the Flexitrace and an earth stake (or other independant earth). The Flexitrace can be pushed the length of the duct or drain and then traced along it’s complete length with a Cable Avoidance Tool (CAT Receiver).

The compact size of the end coil (8.3mm diameter) and the flexibility of the 4.5mm rod make the Flexitrace particularly suitable for locating narrow ducts.

Suitable for use with most C.A.T and signal generator systems.

FLEXITRACE USED IN SONDE MODE

Flexitrace in sonde mode. Connect both terminals to the signal generator.

FLEXITRACE USED IN LINE MODE

Tracing non-metalic ducts or drains in line mode. The whole of the trace system is energised. Connect one terminal to the signal generator and the other to the earth rod (or other independent earth).
