Locator Calibration and Repair Services

For all Pipe & Cable locators a 12 month calibration cycle is recommended.

TMG Test Equipment uses eCAL™ to validate the original factory calibration of the RD7xxx series, RD8xxx series, SuperCAT and CAT4 Pipe and Cable Locators, providing the user with confidence that the instrument locator continues to meet its original factory calibration.

We provide a quick turnaround time and for all pipe & cable locators we have sold and serviced we send a yearly reminder for when your unit is due for calibration.

Contact our Service Department on 1800 626 500 today for a quote for calibration or repair
