The vLoc3-9800 utility locator offers the familiar left/ right guidance interface with the new 3D antennas to provide a new and innovative approach to locating buried utilities.  The two sets of 3D antennas provide accurate display of signal distortion and help assure damage prevention, as well as gather vital information on the buried utilities for analysis.  With a bright, easy-to-see in daylight full color display, the information is accessible and readily available.  Included are new audio and mechanical vibration alerts that can be configured to make an individualized experience for the user.  Available warnings include shallow depth, overload, overhead cables and excessive swinging.  With two passive frequencies and full range of frequencies from 16Hz to 200kHz, the user can configure the locator as needed to assure damage prevention and gather the most accurate information for analysis.

Other options for the vLoc3-9800 utility locator include a Bluetooth module that can be used with external GPS mapping devices and an EMS foot to locate buried markers (marker balls).  Depth of cover and current on the line are shown with the push of a button.  With the optional A-Frame the user can find cable faults with directional arrows.
