The vLoc-5000 features SIS (Signal Select) with Positive Line Identification. 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 utility or the wrong utility. This feature is used primarily for high value utilities in congested areas, i.e., running through crowded corridors, etc. SIS can be used in low and medium frequencies making the vLoc-5000 one of the most accurate line locators ever developed.
Classic Locate Mode
The classic mode with Peak (bar-graph & numeric indication) and Null (left/right arrows) with automatic depth & signal current and Compass (line orientation). Distortion is indicated by bar-graph color.
Green - good locate signal
Blue - some distortion detected
Red - very high distortion
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.
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.
