The Ritelite Traceable Rodding System has a copper wire in the rod which can be energised with a signal transmitter. The locator detects the frequency, allowing the entire buried utility to be traced and marked from above ground by one person.
The high quality Ritelite Trace Rodding Systems provide 2 solutions in one product. They can be used as a standard fibreglass rodding system for cable / draw rope installation and as a traceable rodding system to identify duct/pipe runs or locate blockages.
- Lower investment cost as the Trace Rod replaces two items of equipment
- Less equipment to carry on your vehicle and to site – saving space, weight and time.
To use as a trace rod push the rod along the duct as required or until a blockage or obstruction is met. Connect a signal generator to the terminal on the end of the rod (at the point where it attaches to the reel). Connect the metal part of the rod reel to an earth stake (or other independent earth). The Trace Rod can then be traced along it’s complete length with a Cable Avoidance tool (CAT Receiver).
Suitable for use with most C.A.T and signal generator systems.
