Vivax vLoc3-9800 Locator

The vLoc3-9800 from Vivax-Metrotech is a fully-automatic gain control, precision left/right guidance utility locator. The vLoc3-9800 is built on a new Triaxial 3D antenna architecture with highly configurable features. The vLoc3-9800 offers two passive modes and all available frequencies between 16Hz up to 200kHz. Audio and mechanical vibration alerts can also be configured by users providing warnings for shallow depth, overload, overhead cables and excessive swinging. The vLoc3-9800 can be equipped with optional Bluetooth module for GPS mapping and MLA (marker locator adapter) add-on for locating buried EM markers and TX Link for communications between receiver and transmitter.
