Vivax-Metrotech launches the new vLoc3-Pro and vLoc3-5000 Receivers

The vLoc3-Pro utility locator introduces new innovative tools for locating buried utilities assuring damage prevention while gathering information for analysis. With two sets of screened 3D antennas signal distortion is easily detected and displayed on the bright full color display.

Operating modes: Along with classic locate screens the vLoc3 series locators offer new locate perspective screens of Vector Locate for fully automatic non-walk over locating, Transverse Graph showing both peak and null simultaneously providing immediate measurement of signal distortion, Plan View showing the relative orientation of the cable at any angle, and a new graphical Sonde screen with guidance arrows leading to the sonde location even when it is vertical.

User configurable: The highly user configurable vLoc3 series contains eight passive locate modes, fault-find mode, SD (showing direction of outgoing current), and a range of configurable frequencies from 16Hz to 200 kHz. Audio and mechanical vibration alerts can also be configured by the user providing warnings for shallow depth, overload, overhead cables, and excessive swinging.

Plug-in-play options: Plug-in-play options for the receiver include optional Bluetooth module useable with external GPS devices, the MLA (Marker Locator Adapter) EMS foot to locate buried markers, and A-frame cable sheath fault locator.

Fleet management: Manage a fleet of utility locators with the free MyLocator PC software. Configure a fleet of locators by turning on or off features, selecting which frequencies the user has access to and creating custom startup screens. The MyLocator software also will transfer data from the locator to a host computer, perform software updates and save the locators configuration and settings.
