Cable Hound Sniffs Out Underground Cables With Noise Suppression Technology

Cable Hound Sniffs Out Underground Cables With Noise Suppression Technology

The Cable Hound Receiver with DSP noise suppression uses state-of-the-art digital signal processing to filter out virtually all unwanted noise. This allows the user to detect only the 2.7 KHz signal produced by the Cable Hound transmitter. DSP technology offers a dramatic improvement in underground cable locating, especially in high electrical noise environments. 

The unit is used to avoid interrupting existing buried services while locating irrigation control wires and valves, buried cable, gas and water pipes, tracer wires and tapes.  Cable Hound DSP has exceptional depth and distance capabilities. 

The Cable Hound Kit contains a transmitter, digital receiver, headphones, tone probe, ground rod and carrying case. The transmitter is powered by eight C batteries. The DSP receiver is a sensitive solid-state digital amplifier and the tone probe is encased in molded rubber that acts as a directional antenna to pick up the transmitted tone. The stereo headphones are padded for comfort and are equipped with a 6 1/2-foot cord and a 3.5 mm plug.  

Dimensions of the unit are 15 1/2 by 13 1/2 by by 4 inches and it weighs slightly over 4 1/2 pounds without batteries.

The Cable Hound is manufactured in the U.S.A. by MetroTel Corporation. For more information call 402/426-3789 or visit
