Safety equipment: Schonstedt announces the launch of Rex, Schonstedt’s newest pipe and cable locator aimed at all underground utilities: water and sewer, electric, telecom, and gas. Rex is a multi-frequency locator with a price tag comparable to single-frequency locators. The sleek design of the transmitter is less than 2” thick and weighs less than 4 lbs. The pistol-grip receiver extends for greater sensitivity and retracts for easier carrying and storage. Both the receiver and transmitter fit easily into a custom shoulder bag —no more lugging of heavy cases, no more hand and wrist fatigue—even after a full day of locating. And Rex is so ruggedly built that it carries an industry-leading 3-year warranty.

Schonstedt is also offering Rex as a Multi-Purpose Combo Kit (MPC-Rex). The first of its kind, this kit includes a GA-92XTd Magnetic Locator and a Rex Multi-Frequency Pipe and Cable Locator. Projects calling for both pipe and valve locating now move faster, with less time lost. And purchased as a kit, the two-locator bundle reaps even more savings.

Founded in 1953 by Erick O. Schonstedt, Schonstedt Instrument Company was initially a contractor to the aerospace industry, providing high-grade magnetometers for aerospace and laboratory applications. They began making magnetic locators for land surveyors in the 1970s and introduced a line of pipe and cable locators in 2002. Schonstedt pipe & cable locators broke new ground for the utility locating industry, offering better ergonomics, portability, and ease of use. Call Wendy Hart, Marketing Director, at 1-800-999-8280.
