VM-810 Utility Locator
The Vivax-Metrotech VM-810 is the locator of choice for many Customers around the world. Metrotech has been producting the well-tried and tested 810 for over forty years. The instrument includes a distance sensitive left/right guidance systemTM (pioneered by Metrotech) to provide accurate, easy locating. It carries a single higher 83.1kHz frequency that is useful for locating larger pipes with bell housings and gaskets. This frequency is ideal for water and gas utilities and is also good for locating under-grounded small diameter drop wires and inducing signals through the soil onto services when direct connecting is not an option.
The VM-810 comes standard as a complete kit with receiver, transmitter, direct connection leads, and hard case. Optional Transmitter Induction Clamp can be purchased to allow application of the transmitter signal to be induced onto a cable. The Distance Sensitive Left/ Right GuidanceTM feature enables the locator to find which antenna is receiving the strongest signal and by displaying arrows on the screen, indicate which direction the user should move in order to be over the buried line. The arrow guidance and pushbutton simplicity create a user-friendly locator that is very popular in the industry.
