The new Gen-Eye Hot-Spot pipe locator from General Pipe Cleaners makes locating easier than ever. Its total field antenna array and on-screen icons lead you right to your target, without a long learning curve. Whether you’re an experienced pro or a first-time user, you can quickly locate inspection cameras, sondes, active power lines and utility lines with pinpoint accuracy. No need to interpret numbers and bar graphs. 

The easy-to-see auto backlit LCD display shows you the way with arrows that point you in the right direction every time. Utility line location and active buried power line locating are just as easy. The Hot-Spot is the industry’s most rugged locator. The dustproof locator is dirt- and water-resistant and IP65 rated. It passed the 1-meter drop test and the screen passed the 18-inch steel ball drop test. 

Just follow the three-step process:

Step one: On-screen arrows point you in the right direction; no need to interpret numbers and bar graphs. 

Step two: When all four arrows point back toward each other indicating you’re at the null point, you’ve found the pipe location. 

Step three: Now move the Hot-Spot locator between the null points. When you’re directly over the camera, the diamond appears at the center of the circle indicating the camera location. Depth will automatically appear on the screen as well. The line location compass will tell you which way the pipe lays.
