Line and Object Location

Whether you are simply tracing or mapping the location of underground cables or pipes, Vivax-Metrotech offers a variety of cable locators that feature industry-leading technology, simplicity of use, and excellent customer support. Its locators, integrated with GPS receiver, could be of great help, by providing a complete information system about the cable/pipe position Latitude, longitude and depth. It allows you to collect accurate data of your cable location, ready to download to a computer and be integrated in your data base or GIS.

The vLocPro2 (VLP2) utility locator receiver was designed to meet the tough requirements of the modern world. With more and more utilities being buried each day and also abandoned each day, it truly is a jungle beneath the ground. Today’s locator must not only trace the path of a buried utility, it must assure the user that the locate is beyond the shadow accurate. The vLocPro2 (VLP2) is the tool that will give you the same results time after time with speed and, accuracy which leaves you confident in the decision to put the paint mark on the ground. The vLocPro2 (VLP2) series locator is the locator of choice for the contract locating professionals.

The vLocPro2 (VLP2) utility locator receiver has more than seventy active frequencies from 98Hz to 200kHz as well as several passive modes such as broad and narrow band power and VLF radio and SD (signal direction). Once the target line is located use the compass feature to quickly trace the line by following the compass line. ...   Learn more

The Spar 300 family represents a comprehensive approach to surveying and mapping underground utilities. It is fully integrated with the Trimble Access surveying environment, operates seamlessly with Trimble GNSS receivers, may be used with Trimble Total Stations and is available from many Trimble dealers.

The Spar employs a set of magnetic field sensors to accurately measure the 3-D offset to an underground utility and automatically combines this offset with absolute positions obtained via GNSS or other survey methods to obtain the 3-D coordinates of the utility. The Spar’s novel approach allows it to measure the 3-D offset from any vantage point within range and its built-in acceleration and magnetic sensors allow it to operate in almost any position. Moreover, it offers two distinct operating modes, line and sonde, extending its capabilities to most surveying situations.
