The VM-480B Split Box (half being the transmitter and half being the receiver) utility locator is a versatile locating instrument designed for locating and tracing the path of pipes and cables; detecting energized 50Hz/60Hz power lines; and when mounted on an optional carrying handle, conducting blind searches, ground surveys, and locating underground metal masses. Depth measurement is accomplished using the triangulation method. The operating frequency of 83kHz is ideal for locating buried water lines, gas lines, and tracer wire while the passive power mode will locate energized power lines.
