Cable avoidance tools use signals to scan the ground to help discover underground pipes or cables to avoid any risk if injury or damage the pipes or cables. Cable locators or ground penetrating radars are used before any excavation to pinpoint exactly where the utilities are underground. It allows quick and easy scanning in order for a swift installation of electrical cables or utility pipes.
