Cable avoidance and location from Seba

Posted: Friday 19th May 2006

Mans International has introduced an important development in cable avoidance and location into the UK market in partnership with Seba KMT that will be a major aide to the management and maintenance of utility services.

According to Mans International the Easyloc cable avoidance and tracing system has a radical, but simple ergonomic design to make it easier to handle and has a superior operating mode to existing equipment in the sector. It is fast and easy to operate and safe too – it is designed to avoid potentially dangerous power cables and other services as efficiently as possible.

The user can work in both audio and visual mode at all times as the receiver shows the level of signal received with a ‘max’ marker – just like a mobile phone display. The Easyloc location system is fast and easy to learn – in trials users started operating it immediately – but Seba KMT UK and Mans International provide training on site or in its purpose built training centre.

Produced in a solid shape and material it will stand up to the most testing site use, Easyloc has a longer battery life and with a class-leading high power transmitter has a better spread of signal and a longer range. It is easy to maintain too. Annual calibration is a simple test and repairs are carried out by a quick replacement of modules.

“With legislation such as the Traffic Management Act and issues such as low rainfall and water shortages across the UK, the regulated industry and its contractors have to respond to the situation with better management processes and equipment. The Easyloc location system will be a vital piece of equipment to help them achieve their service commitments. It is more than a tool – it is a solution to an ongoing issue, the location of services,” said Mike Napper of Seba KMT UK and Mans International.

Utility organisations under pressure from regulators and end users to improve their performance, contractors need the most up to date and accurate technology to locate pipes, connections, leaks and cables – Seba KMT UK and Mans International’s equipment does just that.

“Our partnership Seba KMT, a major European manufacturer based in Germany, means that as well as new technology and products to unveil, we have the financial investment in place for the future growth of the business and the technical support available for our customers. We also want to work with our customers, especially the utility companies to develop and improve solutions such as the Easyloc,” said Mike Napper.
