Rex: A New Breed of Multifrequency Pipe and Cable Locator

Since launching in 2017, Rex — a multifrequency locator — has been hot on the trail of underground utilities like water, sewer, electric, telecom, oil and gas. With a price tag comparable to single- frequency locators, Rex boasts a smoothly designed transmitter that is less than 2 inches thick and weighs less than 3 pounds.

A pistol-grip receiver extends for greater sensitivity and retracts for easier carrying and storage. At slightly over 7 pounds, the entire system fits nicely into a custom shoulder bag. Rex is ruggedly built, carrying a three-year warranty.

Combo kit

Schonstedt is also offering Rex as a multipurpose combo kit (MPC-Rex). The first of its kind, this kit includes a GA-92XTd magnetic locator and a Rex multifrequency pipe and cable locator. Purchased as a kit, the two-locator bundle offers even more savings.

Schonstedt Instrument Co. began making magnetic locators for land surveyors in the 1970s and introduced a line of pipe and cable locators in 2002. Schonstedt pipe and cable locators broke ground by offering improved ergonomics, portability and ease of use. Schonstedt is a subsidiary of SPX Corp., and is part of SPX’s Radiodetection business unit. 

SPX Corp. is a supplier of highly engineered products and technologies, holding leadership positions in the HVAC, detection and measurement, and engineered solutions markets. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, SPX Corp. had approximately $1.4 billion in annual revenue in 2017 and more than 5,000 employees in 14 countries.
