RTK-Pro Utility Locator with Survey-Grade GNSS

RTK-Pro Utility Locator with Survey-Grade GNSS

The vLoc3 RTK-Pro receiver is the first to add RTK GNSS accuracy to a utility locator. Using the RTK-Pro internal cellular module with 4G LTE
capabilities, the operator has the ability to connect to NTRIP RTK (Real-Time Kinematic ) caster that provides RTCM 3 corrections. By utilizing these
corrections, the operator can collect both utility location data along with the geographical location of the utility with survey-grade accuracy.
The RTK-Pro is designed for all operator levels, utilizing user-friendly and intuitive locate screens. Operators simply confirm the utility data
with the press of a button and align the electronic spirit level to store the data. All field data is sent to the cloud and retained in the
receivers on board storage for review and exporting to external mapping programs.
The user-configurable vLoc3 series receivers contains eight passive locate modes, fault find mode, SD (showing the direction of outgoing
current), and a range of configurable frequencies from 16Hz to 200 kHz. Visual and mechanical vibration alerts can also be configured by
the user providing warnings for shallow depth, overload, overhead cables, and excessive swinging. Optional features include Tx-Link that
enables the user to change the frequencies of the transmitter, power output and operate most of the features of the transmitter remotely.
