The LT-Sonic is equipped with two main parts. A pulse generator as a Transmitter which is fitting to a fire hydrant, water meter base, or tap, and the hand-held receiver as a geophone to trace buried pipe away from the pulse generator.
The pulse generator is activated with external 6 to 12VDC. The pulse generator applies an adjustable wave signal along the pipe that is locatable by the sensitive piezo-electric sensor in the receiver.
The Generated acoustic signal is heard in the headphones. Also, if you use LT-Sonic APP, then the location is shown on the map which is adjustable.
LT-Sonic Pulse Generator
The LT-Sonic™ receiver has two modes for operation:
Mode A (Water Pipe Locating Mode):
In special frequency bandwidth, the receiver detects pipe vibration when the pulse generator is working. The loudest sound would be detected on the pipe’s center. So, the operator can identify the location of the buried water pipe and trace its route. In this mode, operator can use the tracing mode ground plate for asphalt, paving, or concrete.
Mode B (Water Leak Detection Mode):
In wide range frequency bandwidth, the receiver can detect water leakage sound, amplify, and filter it. The operator can use bandpass filters to reduce or block the environmental noises and find the leakage, or ALJ (Automatic Leak Judgement) Mode and AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology to identify and pinpoint the water leakage.
The LT-Sonic™ is equipped with aviation headphones for reducing environmental noises to make the best water pipe tracing and water leak detection experience.
