How does the cable locator work?
Each cable transmits a different signal, and locators pick up those signals. These signals help identify the exact location of an underground utility.
Many utility lines give off a charge or transmit a signal, and in most cases each line has a different charge or signal. However, some lines do not give off a charge or transmit a signal. In these cases, a transmitter can be used to induce a signal onto a metal line, which allows the locator to pick up the signal.
