The NEW vLoc-9800 is a new addition to the vLoc Series 2 Locator Range, it builds on the Metrotech tradition of performance and simplicity.
Distance Sensitive Left/Right GuidanceTM
Pioneered by Metrotech thirty years ago - this is the standard method of locating in many industries. Most manufacturers provide left/right indication using a peak/null antenna set. Metrotech product and now the vLoc-9800 uses two horizontal guidance antennas some distance apart. This provides very accurate left/right separation – that, together with an exceptionally high level of sensitivity, produces a crisp, fast, accurate response… and an easier locate.
The NEW vLoc-9800 Features:
The A-frame accessory is used to detect ground faults on pipes and cables. In the case of pipes, the faults consist of coating defects. In the case of cables, faults are usually caused by insulation damage allowing the metallic sheath (or internal conductor) to become in contact with the ground.
The LPC separation filter (LPC) is used to safely inject a trace tone to a live cable via a domestic mains socket, so that the cable can be traced from the premises to the connection in the street. It is suitable for connecting to voltages between 100V AC and 250V AC.
MyLocator2 configuration tool is a software package that enables the operator to configure the vLoc series 2 of locators.
