The vLoc3-Pro utility locator introduces new innovative tools for locating buried utilities assuring damage prevention while gathering information for analysis. With two sets of screened 3D antennas signal distortion is easily detected and displayed on the bright full color display. Along with classic locate screens the vLoc3 series locators offer new locate perspective screens of Vector Locate for fully automatic non-walk over locating, Transverse Graph showing both peak and null simultaneously providing immediate measurement of signal distortion, Plan View showing the relative orientation of the cable at any angle, and a new graphical Sonde screen with guidance arrows leading to the sonde location even when it is vertical.
The highly user configurable vLoc3 series contains eight passive locate modes, fault-find mode, SD (showing direction of outgoing current), and a range of configurable frequencies from 16Hz to 200 kHz. Audio and mechanical vibration alerts can also be configured by the user providing warnings for shallow depth, overload, overhead cables, and excessive swinging. Plug-in-play options for the receiver include optional Bluetooth module useable with external GPS devices and EMS foot to locate buried markers.
The vLoc3-MLA (Marker Locator Adapter) is designed for easy, fast and accurate location of buried EMS markers. Once located the MLA will give depth of cover to the buried marker with the touch of a button.
The MLA attaches to the bottom of vLoc3-Pro, vLoc3-9800 and vLoc3-5000 receivers. When attached and pluged in to the receivers two marker related operating modes are enabled. In the dedicated marker mode, the receiver screens show a peak bar graph with the signal strength from the marker, the marker type and depth to the marker. In the dual marker mode all the above are shown in addition to the standard utility locate screen including left/right arrows and compass.
The plug-and-play MLA will detect any one of nine marker types, in good conditions, buried to a depth of 6’/2m and large flat markers to 9’/3m.

Classic Mode

Unique in all display modes are the colour codes which give the level of distortion and confidence level.

The Classic Screen has all the functions normally seen on a classic cable locator.


Vector Mode

This view is the Vector screen which is a side view, or cross section view. The inset view is the top pan view. Combined the user has a true 3D view.

Vector mode allows to measure utilities from a location which is offset. This would potentially allow to detect a utility that is located on a busy road from the safe location of a sidewalk.


Transverse Mode

The Transverse Plot screen is used to analyse the field shape at a particular location. This enables the user to get a better feel for the reliability of the data gathered.

Two plots are generated simultaneously

  • Peak response
  • Null response

In non-distorted fields, the peak and null positions should coincide, and the shape of the fields should be symmetrical about the centre line.


Plan Mode

The Plan View screen shows a picture as if you were viewing the line from above the ground. When the blue line in the centre and pointing forward/back you are directly over the line and pointing in the direction of the line.

Red, blue and green colour of the line show the level of distortion and confidence level.


Sonde Locating Mode

The Sonde give a different “Peak” pattern and there are three distinct peaks – a small peak – a large peal - a small peak with two “Nulls” between the peaks. The Sonde is located under the centre of the “large peak”
