The vLoc3-Pro by Vivax-Metrotech series line locator uses two sets of screened 3D antennas to easily detect signal distortion and offer new locate perspectives which are displayed on a bright new 4.3″ full-color display.

The new vLoc3-Pro line locator adds the Vector Locate mode which allows the user to locate utility lines from an off-set position, meaning they do not have to walk directly above the target line.   Another new perspective on the vLoc3-Pro is the new Transverse graph which shows both peak and null simultaneously, giving the user immediate feedback and measurement of signal distortion.  Plan View shows the relative orientation of the cable at any angle. The new graphical Sonde screen with guidance arrows, along with the classic locate screens, round out the new vLoc3 series to make it a revolutionary new utility locator.

In addition, Vivax-Metrotech’s vLoc3-Pro offers SD (showing direction of outgoing current), fault-find mode, the eight passive locate modes listed above, and a range of configurable frequencies from 16Hz to 200kHz.  Audio and mechanical vibration alerts can also be configured to provide warnings for shallow depth, overload, overhead cables, and excessive swinging.  This receiver can be customized with a number of different utility locator transmitters to create a complete kit.  The Loc3 series transmitters provide an optimal pairing.   In addition, an optional Bluetooth Module can be added to the vLoc3-Pro for use with external GPS devices and EMS foot used to locate buried markers.
