The vLocML 2 is a multi-purpose locator with a factory installed option to locate the various buried “markers” used in our industry. It is also a fully functioning pipe & cable locator. This enables the operator to simultaneously cable/pipe and marker locate allowing the user to trace a line and be warned when a marker is approached. The unit is recognizable by the carbon fiber collar near the base of the antenna tube. Other manufacturers use clumsy fold down antennas, or heavy internal ferrite antennas. The Vivax-Metrotech solution is a permanently mounted lightweight carbon fibre encased antenna.
The vLocML 2 has a new battery configuration using Li-ION technology which is much lighter than the current units and the battery lasts up to 4X longer. vLoc ML2 provides the choice of locating one type of marker only, or all markers simultaneously. One can also choose to look only for markers, or locate and search for markers at the same time.
The locator display indicates the marker type it is identified by both an ICON and a number – the response is indicated by a large circular ball.
