Anyone who has located sondes or push cameras knows what a nerve-racking task this can be. Problems encountered can be ghost signals, deep depths and rebar in concrete.

Fortunately, the vLoc3-Cam Sonde locator from Vivax-Metrotech brings advanced filtering and Omni-directional antenna technology that will make sonde locating fast, easy and accurate. The bright full-color graphical display directs the user to the sonde with directional arrows. When on top of the sonde, confirmation is given with a large sonde icon and depth reading. 

No need to sweep forward/back or side to side. The vLoc3-Cam walks you directly to a position directly on top of the sonde.

The Pushrod Trace mode shows a second display for tracing the path of the pushrod deployed in the pipe or tracing utilities with an optional portable transmitter. 

Passive locate modes — Power and Radio — will detect the presence of live power lines, CATV, telephone and metallic pipes which radiate 60 Hz from nearby or overhead power lines.

Plug-and-play options for the receiver include an optional Bluetooth module useable with external GPS devices. Use the free VMMap app to create a bird’s eye view of the pipe path complete with GPS coordinates and user comments.
