Mytana locators work with industry standard frequencies, including most often used in sewer cameras 512Hz. Locate up to 25 ft deep, are simple and reliable enough. If used properly, they don’t miss the location of a camera head by more than 5″ from a 10′ location. The display is backlit, buttons are weather proof.
The problem I see with people locating they swing the locator you have to have the locator straight up and down. Once you find the “spot” hold the locator straight, don’t lean to the left or the right, don’t tilt it if forward or back. Hit he depth button you’re there. I had one trainee that couldn’t keep his locator straight so I fixed a corner post level to the locator he had no problem after that. But to this day he still has that level attached.
BUZZING If you feel a vibration or buzzing in the handle, turn the sensitivity down.
Strong electrical sources and magnetic fields can interfere with the locator. The true signal will be smooth, False signals will waiver. You need to keep low sensitivity to avoid reading false signals.
The camera head MUST be parallel to the locator head. It won’t find the camera on the angle.
The choice of HIGH (65khz, 82khz, 200khz, & 478khz); MID-RANGE (8khz, 9khz, 33khz); LOW (512hz, 640hz) frequency is dependent on the conditions of the locate.
