vLocML2+ Locator

Overview
          The vLocML2+ Receiver is an extended version of the popular vLocPro2 with the addition of the ability to locate buried electronic markers. The vLocML2+ comes with passive modes of Power and Radio, a range of preloaded active frequencies from 50Hz to 200kHz, Sonde Mode, SD (Signal Direction) mode and Electronic Marker modes.  The vLocML2+ has an internal memory to store over 1000 records of data.

 

          The vLocML2+ can be used in three configurations suited to the task at hand. The Line/Marker mode for all the functions for general pipe, cable and sonde locating and where all markers attached to lines are shown with depth. The Dedicated Line Location mode where all the functions for general pipe, cable and sonde locating are active and the dedicated Marker Mode for just marker locating.

 

          The vLocML2+ Receivers accessory socket can enhance the locating experience with accessories such as the A-frame Fault Locator to pinpoint faults and cable cuts and the Remote Antenna to act as a stethoscope to positively identify a cable when in a tray.

 

Features
  • Large full-color screen

  • Left/Right locate arrows

  • Bluetooth and GPS options

  • Compass line direction indicator

  • Rechargeable and alkaline batteries

  • Auto depth readout of buried markers

                                                       

 


Transmitters

A wide range of transmitters are available for use with the vLocML2 receiver.

  • Loc-1Tx (1 watt) transmitter is a three frequency transmitter for short range applications.

 

  • Loc-5STx (5 watt) transmitter has multiple frequencies, signal direction and sheath fault locating modes.

         

 

  • Loc-5DTx (5 watt) dual output transmitter* has multiple frequencies, signal direction, sheath fault locating modes and can connect up to four utilities simultaneously. (*North American market only.)

  •      

  • Loc-10Tx (10 watt) transmitter has our maximum number of frequencies and a true 10W of output, together with signal direction and sheath fault locating modes.

 

  •  The Loc-5STx and Loc-10Tx can transmit 2 frequencies simultaneously.

The Loc-1Tx, Loc-5STx / Loc-5DTx, Loc-10Tx have internal batteries. See the relevant transmitter data sheets for a full details of features and performance.

Accessories

The A-frame fault finding accessory is used to detect ground faults on pipes and cables. In the case of pipes, the faults consist of coating defects. In the case of cables, faults are usually caused by insulation damage allowing the metallic sheath (or internal conductor) to become in contact with the ground.

Manage a fleet of utility locators with the free MyLocator2 desktop application. Configure a fleet of locators by turning on or off features, selecting which frequencies the user has access to and creating custom start-up screens. The MyLocator2 software also will transfer data from the locator to a host computer, perform firmware updates and save the receivers configuration and settings.


  • Add a splash start screen to the receiver

  • Perform firmware updates for the receiver 

  • Transfer data from the receiver to a laptop or PC

Direct Connection Leads are used to apply the transmitters signal onto the targeted pipe or cable. The leads consist of a plug, which plugs into the transmitter and a red "hot" lead and a black "ground" lead. Direct connection leads are fitted with various size and types of insulated clips for different applications.


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.

 




Used to extend the ground connection to a suitable grounding position. Extending the ground allows the user to move the ground lead to various positions to help the transmitters signal to travel further. By extending the length of the ground lead the user can use locate tractics as performing a double ended connection.
