Sonde is conductive locating, you are supplying a signal on the target.
For conductive locating Radio Detection is tough to beat, they set the industry standard in the field, my RD4000 is seldom wrong, and it is the chosen tool of most utility locating companies.
For inductive tools my first choice would be Metrotech, but I would be very wary of ever truly trusting an induced signal unless the conditions are very favorable.
When you say "induced" you are referring to an inductive clamp right?
Or do you mean passive location like finding a 60hz AC line by nothing other than it's own natural emf?
The RD4000 has three antenna, the new RD6000 has seven, but I can adjust my RD4000 to only signal when on the target, but I was taught how to use it by a freind of mine that works as a utility locator, so he knows the thing inside and out.I like the Radio Detection but I have an older model. The great thing about the NaviTrack is it has 6 antennas instead of two and it only sounds on the target so it is never wrong.
For a leak locator I am 100% with Metrotech.
