The New vLoc-5000 from VIVAX-METROTECH is in a class all by itself. Combining the features of the popular vLocPro series with features like Signal Select SIS pioneered with the legacy Metrotech i5000, makes this locator stand above all others for accuracy, affordability, and features. Signal Selection SIS, only available on the vLoc-5000; for the first time ever gives users the ability to know without doubt that the utility being located is the target. Combining the left/right centerline guidance with traditional peak and now with a distortion meter helps technicians paint the correct utility every time.

Under the hood the vLoc-5000 provides fast dual-core processor engine which gives the ability to locate using peak antennas, left/right guidance with null antennas, line orientation with compass antenna, distortion meter, automatic depth and current measurement and onboard Bluetooth and GPS for longitude and latitude, and display all the information instantaneous and simultaneously on a large Sharp TFT VGA color display.

When combined with the backing and support of the world-wide experienced design team of VIVAX-METROTECH, it is easy to see why the vLoc-5000 pushes the bench mark above and beyond all its competitors.

The vLoc-5000 features SIS (Signal Select). The SIS feature when used, synchronizes the transmitter and receiver to provide a direction indicator (+ or -) of the signal to be displayed on the color screen while locating. This information allows for a user to more easily determine if they are locating the correct target. This feature is used primarily for high value utilities in congested areas, running through crowded corridors, etc. SIS can be used in low/medium/high frequencies making the vLoc-5000 one of the most accurate line locators ever designed.
Stacks Image 10410
Stacks Image 10488
Signal Select (SIS) allows the target line to be positively identified by indicating a (+) Plus "positive" indication of locate.

When the (+) Plus is indicated, the user can be sure that they are locating the target utility.
Stacks Image 10558
When the Signal Select (SIS) displays a (-) Minus or negative, this indicates that the user has lost the initial target locate and is now locating the wrong utility. This feature alone can save thousands of dollars in miss locates and lost hours on the job site.
Stacks Image 10475
The Distortion Alert meter is constantly analyzing the quality of the locating signal and will display a red warning indication when it detects distortion in the electromagnetic field. Distortion is caused by adjacent or crossing utilities. If no color is indicated, then locate signal is good and marking accuracy can be assured.

This feature also provides the line orientation arrow, which indicates direction of the utility.
Stacks Image 10543
When signal distortion is detected the circle fills up with red color indicating that this particular area of the utility locate should be given proper attention to guarantee accuracy.

This feature is important in helping locate technicians identify areas of concern. It can be used to eliminate good locates and marks from requiring additional attention, and instead focus on other areas where additional attention is required, thus saving additional time on the job site.
Locating accuracy is guaranteed with the bargraph and numerical peak signal strength indication. The unique multi-color indication makes locating the exact peak a quick and easy task.

Note: Under extreme difficult conditions, the peak indication will always be the final overriding piece information when determining where to mark the utility.

Note: Under extreme difficult conditions, the peak indication will always be the final overriding piece information when determining where to mark the utility.
Stacks Image 10496
Left / Right indication is displayed with a green centerline indication. This feature aides with line locating accuracy. When the centerline matches the peak indication, the user is exactly above the utility. Using both peak and centerline indication guarantee user accuracy.

Note: If centerline appears inaccurate, and distortion is indicated (RED COLOR), then only the peak indication should be trusted. The combination of these tools help technicians and engineers maintain accurate locates, even under the most difficult conditions.

Every vLoc-5000 receiver come standard with cable fault locating capabilities. The optional A-Frame accessory is all that is needed for easy and accurate above ground locating of cable sheath to ground faults. Cable faults is a common failure in the Telecom and Power industry, and never before has there been a cable fault locator that simultaneously locates cable, locates faults, and provide instant depth of fault when found, all in a single pass, saving time and money.

This system can find major and minor failures associated with power and telephone outages, or pin holes due to minute electrolysis or cable defects. A built-in resistance measure mode in the transmitter provides an accurate resistance measurement of the faulted conductor, making diagnosing and fixing out-of-service circuits an easier and quicker task.
