Locator

Underground cables are one of the things that enable telecommunication and power transmission. They are especially beneficial to densely populated areas, particularly those locations where overhead cable posts are unavailable or are not ideal.

Locating underground cables—as well as other underground facilities—is an integral pre-excavation process mandated by laws and guided by a number of industry standards. During excavations, underground cables become at risk of getting damaged. In fact, utility strikes are a common occurrence on construction sites, resulting in compromised worker and public safety, repair costs, and work delay, among others.

Based on the 2018 Damage Information Reporting Tool (DIRT) Report of the Common Ground Alliance (CGA), some of the most common root causes of utility strikes include failure to call 811 before digging, improper excavation practices, and inaccurate marking of underground facilities.

Furthermore, the CGA also noted that locator errors are one of the common causes of strike incidents. This emphasizes the need for understanding how cable locators work as well as how different cable types can be most accurately detected.

Usage data can be exported in multiple file formats – for example KML for Google Maps to confirm where and when work was performed.

Industrial grade display, for outdoor usage
RD8200 locators and transmitters use transflective low power LCD technology that uses ambient light to improve screen readability in direct sun light and extend battery life.

TruDepth™ and current readout, for extra assurance
Radiodetection’s TruDepth displays precise depth and current measurements, only when the RD8200 is correctly oriented above the target. Measurement consistency gives high confidence that the correct line is being followed.

High performance audio and vibration alerts, for noisy environments
The RD8200 waterproof speaker housing has been tuned to provide optimum resonance for your choice of high or low frequency tones.

5 power output audio levels and vibration alerts, assist technicians working in challenging situations.

Current Direction, track the right line
Identify your target amongst a number of parallel utilities by applying a specialized CD signal from a Tx-10 transmitter. CD arrows displayed on the locator confirm you are tracing your target line.

Power Filters™, works where other locators wont
When a transmitter can’t be connected, tracing individual power lines through dense networks can be a real challenge. Conflicting or powerful signals confuse or combine to create a wash of signal.

A single key press enables the use of the harmonic properties of power signals to establish if a signal comes from one source, or from multiple cables which you can then trace and mark. 

Dynamic Overload Protection, rejects unwanted interference
Automatically filters out interference, enabling use in electrically noisy environments such as near substations or overhead power lines.

Swing Warning System, drives correct usage
Locators must be kept perpendicular to the ground for best accuracy. RD8200 locators have a built-in gyroscopic measurement system which alerts the user of excessive swing, driving correct usage.

Made in the UK – No compromise on quality
The RD8200 locator and transmitters are designed and manufactured in the Great Britain and are subjected to a rigorous test regime before leaving our factory.

Locate with confidence - Self-test
Confirm the integrity of the measurement system on- site. Self-test applies signals to the locating circuitry as well as checking display and power functions.

Using the correct frequency makes a world of difference when locating buried utilities. The depth of the utility, size, material, and amount of congestion (proximity of other utilities) all need to be taken into consideration for the correct frequency selection. Large diameter, direct buried pipes with bell housing ends that use insulators and rubber gaskets, such as water or gas require a higher frequency while smaller diameter, well-grounded direct buried or long distance in conduits work, better with a lower frequency.

Vivax Metrotech vLoc3-Pro Receiver - NEW (vLoc3-Pro)

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. 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.
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 for the receiver include optional Bluetooth module useable with external GPS devices and EMS foot to locate buried markers.
The vLoc3-MLA (Marker Locator Adapter) is designed for easy, fast and accurate location of buried EMS markers. Once located the MLA will give depth of cover to the buried marker with the touch of a button.
The MLA attaches to the bottom of vLoc3-Pro, vLoc3-9800 and vLoc3-5000 receivers. When attached and pluged in to the receivers two marker related operating modes are enabled. In the dedicated marker mode, the receiver screens show a peak bar graph with the signal strength from the marker, the marker type and depth to the marker. In the dual marker mode all the above are shown in addition to the standard utility locate screen including left/right arrows and compass.
The plug-and-play MLA will detect any one of nine marker types, in good conditions, buried to a depth of 6’/2m and large flat markers to 9’/3m.

Classic Mode

Unique in all display modes are the colour codes which give the level of distortion and confidence level.

The Classic Screen has all the functions normally seen on a classic cable locator.

V3A02-C02A-B-AU_07.png

Vector Mode

This view is the Vector screen which is a side view, or cross section view. The inset view is the top pan view. Combined the user has a true 3D view.

Vector mode allows to measure utilities from a location which is offset. This would potentially allow to detect a utility that is located on a busy road from the safe location of a sidewalk.

V3A02-C02A-B-AU_08.png

Transverse Mode

The Transverse Plot screen is used to analyse the field shape at a particular location. This enables the user to get a better feel for the reliability of the data gathered.

Two plots are generated simultaneously

  • Peak response
  • Null response

In non-distorted fields, the peak and null positions should coincide, and the shape of the fields should be symmetrical about the centre line.

V3A02-C02A-B-AU_09.png

Plan Mode

The Plan View screen shows a picture as if you were viewing the line from above the ground. When the blue line in the centre and pointing forward/back you are directly over the line and pointing in the direction of the line.

Red, blue and green colour of the line show the level of distortion and confidence level.

V3A02-C02A-B-AU_10.png

Sonde Locating Mode

The Sonde give a different “Peak” pattern and there are three distinct peaks – a small peak – a large peal - a small peak with two “Nulls” between the peaks. The Sonde is located under the centre of the “large peak”

Loc3 Series 5-Watt Broadband Transmitter

Key Features:
Lightweight – Only 7.15 lbs. / 3.24 kg with Li-ion battery
SD mode for positive location in congested areas
AC/DC external power source
Built-in AVO meter

The 5-Watt broadband transmitter has selectable induction and direct connection frequencies from 98Hz to 200kHz, SD mode (Signal Direction), fault find and true resistance measurement up to 1 Mohm. The two inch by one-inch dot matrix display with LED backlight shows output current, connection type, volts, resistance, frequency, volume, battery condition and high voltage warnings.

The optional Transmitter Link (Tx-Link) installed in the receiver and transmitter, remote operation of the transmitter from the receiver is possible. The range of the radio transmitter link depends on having a clear “line of sight” between receiver and transmitter but is typically around 300m /985 ft. Signal Direction (SD) mode feature verifies if the line being located is the target that the transmitter is connected to.

When a transmitter is connected to a target line, the signal travels along it and finds the easiest way to travel back, usually via the ground and ground stake. However, very often the signal will travel back along adjacent utilities which offer an easier route. As a result, there can be multiple signals radiating from utilities in the area making it difficult to identify the target line. These return signals are typically traveling in the opposite direction than the applied signal. The Signal Direction feature identifies which direction the signal is flowing and hence the target line.

Packaged in a lightweight, rugged, ergonomic IP54 housing, the transmitter provides consistent current output in direct connect, clamp or induction modes and protection against inadvertent connection to incoming voltages up to 240V.
