VM-810/VM-850

          Over recent years components for these products have been made obsolete, increased in cost, and are increasingly becoming difficult to find. This presented the challenge of designing a new VM-810 without losing the features and performance that made it successful. We believe we have met the challenge – the new VM-810 combines the classic look with stunning simplicity and performance – if you liked the classic 810’s you will love the new one.

          The NEW VM-810is designed specifically as a single frequency true left/right locator with separated twin response left/right antennas.

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.
