ARTEMIS enables power cables to be quickly and accurately located from a distance of 5m without the need for cables to be live, toned or magnetised. The unrivalled, versatile system can track broken cables, cables during installation, trenching, deburial and damaged cables. Applies to all copper and aluminium power cables.
An inductive coil induces a continuous 2,800-3,200hz AC tone, using low power, into the cable or pipeline. The tone produces a magnetic field around the asset which is then used to accurately track the cable or pipeline. Unlike other tracking systems, ARTEMIS does not require any cable specific calibration or for the size or the amount of metal in the product.
ARTEMIS is the only solution which can simultaneously provide the exact location and orientation data at the front and rear of a vehicle for ultimate assurance of cable burial by tracking the depth, offset, yaw and angle of cable burial at the rear of the trencher while directing the vehicle at the front. When combined with SMD’s trenching technology, this capability allows cables and pipelines to be accurately tracked and buried to the desired depth.
