  • Laser Target Indicator - An easy-to-see laser indicator highlights the located object's position on the ground when it has been detected.
  • Scientific Instrument - The AML is a highly technical scientific instrument. To protect it, an impact resistant and water proof carrying case with a shock-absorbant foam housing protects your AML while in transit or on the job site.​
  • Ergonomic Handle - The AML PRO handle is designed to provide the user with a comfortable grip in any weather condition, ensuring an accurate reading when the fingers are placed along the knurls.
  • Powerful USB flexibility allows users to export GPS coordinates, import the latest firmware updates and connect to the auxiliary lithium battery source
  • Lightweight - The AML is constructed from lightweight, shock-resistant materials that make it easy to use and handle throughout the work day.
  • Headphone Jack - A convenient headphone jack allows the user to listen to audio signals with premium noise isolating headphones (included).


The key to how the AML detects PVC/PE pipes and to identifying the size or length of a pipe is to understand how its radio frequency detects buried plastic and other objects.

  1. Holding the AML’s handle parallel to the ground, scan the area of the suspected pipe or buried object until one or both of the AML’s target indicators activate.
  2. While the left or right target indicator is activated, rotate the AML until both LED target indicators light simultaneously, triggering the AML’s tone and laser marker. This alert indicates that the pipe or object has been detected and that the AML is now parallel with the underground object.
  3. With the AML in parallel with the pipe or underground object, you can now scan the entire length of the object’s edge. As an alternative, utilize the “W” method of scanning by sweeping the area in a back-and-forth “W” motion, marking the object’s location and run direction as it is tracked.
