Utility Locating - With a 50/60Hz passive power locating frequency and three active frequencies of 512/640Hz, 8.19kHz, and 83KhZ, the VM-585 is will meet the requirements of those wishing to detect the presence of active power cables and to trace short ranges.
Metal Detector – The advanced filtering of the VM-585 rejects materials such as bottle caps and aluminum cans and zeros in on finding only ferrous materials. The manual gain control allows it to be controlled and able to work close to large metal objects such as automobiles and chain link fences while still looking for the targets underground. The VM-585 will locate through asphalt, concrete, or grass and in temporary conditions such as snow. The waterproof carbon fiber tube is water proof and will be able to be used in flooded areas when needed to do so.
The VM-585 transmitter also has the additional frequency of 8kHz Fault-find so it can be used to detect the presence of ground to sheath faults on cables when used with the VM-510 Stand Alone A-Frame fault locator or an Accessory A-frame plugged into the vLocPro2, vLoc-9800 or vLocML2 Receivers.
The 1-Watt VM-585 transmitter applies a locate frequency by direct connection or induction. Optional Induction Clamps can be used to clamp around a line and induce the locate signal onto it.
Standard Clip version is suitable for day-to-day normal usage.
Heavy Duty Clip version is more suited for the gas and water industries where the size of the targeted lines are larger and connections will be made to bell housings, fire hydrants and transformer boxes. The more aggressive teeth of the heavy duty clip also make it easier to connect to objects that are painted such as hydrants.
Telco Clip version is suitable for telephone cable where the user cannot access the sheath of the cable. The "bed of nails" part of this clip can be clamped onto a cable breaking the insulation allowing contact with the sheath.
