Product Description

vLoc3-DM Overview:

The vLoc3-DM Pipeline Defect Mapper by Vivax-Metrotech is used to locate pipelines and assist in evaluating the pipe coating defects.  It uses two sets of screened 3D antennas in order to easily detect signal distortion and offer new locate perspectives.  Then the vLoc3-DM displays these locate screens on a bright new 4.3″ full-color display configured specifically for pipeline evaluation.  You can create real-time graphs with the receiver while still on-site.  A walk back feature highlights the operator’s position on the graph and allows them to return to the point of interest for further evaluation.  Alternatively, an ACVG, A-frame survey can be done.  Model Number:  VX222-01

vLoc3 Series Locate Modes:

The new vLoc3-DM pipeline defect mapper adds the Vector Locate mode which allows the user to locate utility lines from an off-set position.  With this mode the user can walk beside the line instead of on top of it, making it useful for high traffic areas and places with a fence or obstacle in the way. Another new perspective 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. In addition, Vivax-Metrotech’s vLoc3-DM offers audio and mechanical vibration alerts.  The user then configures these alerts to provide warnings for shallow depth, overload, overhead cables, and excessive swinging.

vLoc3-DM Customizations and Upgrades: 

This vLoc3-DM receiver can be used the 150-watt Loc-150Tx DM Transmitter, which is typically used to apply the locate signal once connected to the pipe at CP stations and test posts.  Users power the transmitter from CP stations, AC or external batteries. Two rotary/ push control knobs provide access to frequency selection, output level, menu information and active/ standby modes.

Users can also choose the Vivax Metrotech Loc3-25Tx Transmitter to complete their kit in order to work with a lighter, more portable transmitter. The Loc3-25Tx broadband transmitter has selectable induction and direct connection frequencies from 98Hz to 200kHz.  It also has SD (Signal Direction) mode, Fault Find and true resistance measurement up to 1 Mohm.  The display offers LED backlight and shows output current, connection type, volts, resistance, and frequency.  Additionally, it displays volume, battery condition and high voltage warnings.
