The vLoc3-5000 utility line locator brings an innovative element of digital signal processing, position capturing and broadband frequency selection to buried utility locating. Standard internal GPS captures data for further analysis with the free VM-MAP smartphone application to create real-time maps with GPS data.

Locate Perspectives:  vLoc3 series locators offers innovative locate perspectives, such as the Vector Locate mode which allows the user to locate from an off-set position, meaning they do not have to walk directly above the target line to locate.  The Transverse graph shows both peak and null simultaneously which gives the user immediate feedback and measurement of signal distortion.  Plan View shows the relative orientation of the cable at any angle. The graphical Sonde screen with guidance arrows, along with the classic locate screens, round out the vLoc3-5000 receiver to make it a revolutionary locating tool.

Available in a variety of kit formations in a hard case or soft bags.  The kits come with the Loc3-10 SiS Transmitter, clamp, direct connection leads, ground stake, and manual.  As an option, the Loc3-10 SiS Transmitter and vLoc3-5000 Receiver can be installed with Transmitter Link (Tx-L), which allows for remote operation of the transmitter from the receiver (which must also have the Tx-link feature installed).  Tx-Link gives the user the ability to change frequencies without walking back to the transmitter.  With a clear line of sight, this communication range is typically around 985 feet.
