Dear to all visitors,
We have been appointed as Malaysia distributor rights for the latest USA technology under brand PROTOTEK. The equipment is fully manufactured by Prototek Corporation in Poulsbo, WA.

Compared to other location equipment, the Prototek LF2200 is the most comprehensive solution and very easy to use it (even for the beginner level technician).

The Prototek LF2200 served the following services :

  1. Detecting the HDD infra or existing underground ducting (PN10, uPVC 109mm, HDPE 40mm) via the sonde solution.
  2. Tracing the existing buried TNB underground cable with alignment and depth reading
  3. Tracing the existing water pipe buried underground
  4. Sniffing a frequency for sonde or transmitter manufactured by others
