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.

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.

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.
