Full Range of Configuration Options Available for vLoc3-Pro Utility Locator

The vLoc3-Pro utility locator by Vivax-Metrotech Corp. introduces new innovative tools for locating buried utilities, assuring damage prevention while gathering information for analysis. With two sets of screened 3D antennas, signal distortion is easily detected and displayed on a bright full-color display. 

Operating modes

Along with classic locate screens, the vLoc3 series offers new perspective screens, including Vector Locate for fully automatic nonwalkover locating; Transverse Graph showing both peak and null while providing immediate measurement of signal distortion; Plan View showing the relative orientation of the cable at any angle; and a new graphical Sonde screen with guidance arrows leading to the sonde location even if it’s vertical.

User configuration

The vLoc3 series is user configurable, containing eight passive locate modes, fault-find mode, SD (showing direction of outgoing current), and a range of frequencies from 16 Hz to 200 kHz. 

Audio and mechanical vibration alerts also can be programmed by the user to provide warnings for shallow depth, overload, overhead cables and excessive swinging. 

Plug-in-play options for the receiver include an optional Bluetooth module useable with external GPS devices, the Marker Locator Adapter EMS foot to locate buried markers, and an A-frame cable sheath fault locator.

Fleet management

Manage a fleet of utility locators with the free MyLocator PC software. Users can configure a fleet of locators by turning on or off features, selecting which frequencies the user has access to and creating custom startup screens. The MyLocator software also will transfer data from the locator to a host computer, perform software updates and save the locator’s settings. 

Vivax-Metrotech Corp. is a worldwide leader in the manufacturing of buried utility locators and video inspection cameras.
