When conducting underground utility locating services, MAKA Power uses two types of technology: Ground penetrating radar (GPR) and electromagnetic detection (EM). Both of these are great resources for locating underground utilities.

GPR locates underground utilities by emitting radar waves into the ground. These waves pass through the substrate and reflect off of objects that vary in dielectric from that of the surrounding earth. Ground-penetrating radar works best when you need to locate: buried pipes, cables, underground storage tanks, etc.

Electromagnetic induction detects electromagnetic fields. A magnetic field occurs when a current is running through a transmitting line such as an electrical cable or communication line. The EM unit can detect both passive and active signals.
