The Subsurface cable and pipe locator PL-VF3 is designed for locating professionals and survey engineers. The cable and pipe locator includes many high-end technologies to make finding underground cables, pipes, and line utilities an easy and fast process. The PL-VF3 Subsurface Line Locator is highly adaptable to user requirements and/or work demands. Adding or deleting user-specific frequencies is an easy process.
The remote control of the locating process enables changing transmitter frequencies from the locator unit instantly. This fantastic feature improves the efficiency of locating and saves a lot of time.
Most surveyors and locating professionals value big high-contrast display screen, as it shows all information in full sunlight and other data, such as depth, current, and directional arrows, all information in real-time.
The 3 watt signal transmitter sends a signal a long distance, so even working in remote locations is fast and easy. The standard frequencies include 512 Hz, 8 kHz, 33 kHz, 82 kHz and 200 kHz.
However, you can customize them by adding new frequencies or deleting those you won’t use.
The PL-VF3 Subsurface line locator is very dependable; made in the USA.
