The duct sonde family includes a whole range of robust, water tight and powerful transmitter sonds to be used from fiber optic micro ducts to sewers. Sonde diameters are 6.4mm, 9mm and 18mm and tracing frequencies 10kHz, 33kHz and 512Hz. Accessories include push rods and adapters to different thread sizes. Video shows typical tracing depth for the sonds.
Comparison table of Vesala duct sondes. Indicated range is typical tracing distance with Vesala CL43 receiver. Maximum range is longer.

CL43 Compact Locator is an affordable and easy-to-use wire and cable and duct sonde locator. Outdoors CL43 can be used to trace and pinpoint underground cables from several metres depth. Indoors CL43 can be used to locate for example floor heating cables and wires inside walls.
MPL7 is flexible and only 7mm diameter transmitter sonde for tracing microduct and other tube blockages. It is very useful when new cables are to be pushed into old ducts, which already have installed cables or other obstacles. MPL7-10 is compatible with Vesala’s 10kHz wire and cable tracers.
MPL9 is flexible and only 9mm diameter transmitter sonde for tracing microduct and other tube blockages. It is very useful when new cables are to be pushed into old ducts, which already have installed cables or other obstacles. MPL9-10 is compatible with Vesala’s 10kHz wire and cable tracers.
SPA10/20 is an accessory for the Vesala cable tracers. It is suitable for tracing e.g. small empty cable piping routes in buildings, prefabricated hollow wall blockages or non-conductive sewers and their blockages. Usage of SPA10/20 resembles usage of the pipe transmitters, which is an independent transmitter.
