vLocCam2 Pipe, Cable, Sonde Locator
The Vivax-MetrotechvLocCam2 is a locator configured for use with CCTV inspection cameras (transmitting 512Hz/640Hz location signals) and a range of battery powered Sondes. It is also equipped with two “passive” locate modes of Power and Radio which will detect the presence of power lines, CATV, telephone and some metallic pipes which radiate 50/60Hz from nearby or overhead power lines and induced VLF signal from nearby broadcast towers. Push-button depth displays your depth of cover in feet and inches.
Sondes are small self contained transmitters which are pushed through pipes to find blockages or locate the position and depth of the pipe from the surface. Low frequency Sondes – 512Hz or 640Hz will radiate through both plastic and cast iron pipes. Higher frequency Sondes – 8 kHz or 33 kHz – are used mainly for plastic pipes or ducts. The vLocCam2 is versatile in that while its design allows it to be used with Sondes or CCTV inspection systems, such as the Vivax-Metrotech vCam-6 Camera System, it can also be used with Vivax-Metrotech transmitters for locating underground utilities.
