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.

2'' Induction Clamp

Induction Clamp is used to apply the transmitter signal to a pipe or cable when it is not possible or convenient to use the direct connection leads.

 

The Signal Select Clamp is used to apply the Signal Select locating signal, if direct connection is not possible. Signal Select is a special modulation placed on the targeted utility line to support positive line identification. This feature is available only in select SIS frequencies.

 

Clamp Extension Rod

The plastic non-conductive extension rods have both male and female threads at opposite ends to screw together and extend the length. With the signal clamp attached to the extension rod it can now be safely used on overhead lines and lines in trenches or manholes.

Remote Antenna SIS

The SIS remote antenna is a mini antenna that connects to the vLoc-5000 receiver for line tracing or cable identification. Equipped with Signal Select, the SIS remote antenna becomes a powerful tool that easily identifies a particular cable on a cable tray or where cables are bunched together by providing a visible positive or negative icon (+ and -) and an illuminated top or bottom bezel on the receiver’s operational interface.

MyLocator2 App

 

 

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.

When the receiver is connected to a computer running the MyLocator2 software, the software will automatically search our database for the latest software for both the receiver and desktop application. The receiver connects to the computer running MyLocator2 by the USB cable supplied with the receiver.

  • 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 Lead

 

 

 

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.

Ground Extension Spool is 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 tactics as performing a double ended connection.
