CABLE LOCATOR FOR TRENCHLESS CONSTRUCTION
LOCATING AND SAFETY IN ONE DEVICE...
... is now possible with the TRACTO GRUNDOSTEER locator. The simple locating technology enables both the location of the drill head and the detection of existing cables or metallic pipes in the ground.
You have probably read or heard headlines in the media such as "Power line damaged during civil engineering work - power cut for hours". Usually, this happens when the exact location of the line is not documented and the work is carried out more or less 'blind'. However, it is part of the duty of care of the executing contractor to check the location of other utilities and obstacles in the area before starting the work on site. If this is not done and an existing pipe is damaged, the contractor can be held liable for the consequential damage.
Hence, every civil engineering company installing pipes and cables without trenches is well advised to take the greatest possible care in the preliminary investigation of the underground infrastructure. If there is no documentation of the pipe network on site, pipe locators are a reliable solution - especially those that can cope with the increasing demands of ever more complex pipe infrastructures.
The vScan system is specifically designed to prevent damage to pipes. It uses state-of-the-art technology to reliably determine the location and depth of existing underground cables and metallic pipes. With dual frequency transmitters, data logging, optional metal detection (vScanM) and Bluetooth, they are the ideal choice for beginners and advanced users. Practical features such as an easy-to-read backlit display, a compass direction indicator for correct alignment over the line, and visual and audible warning signals make cable damage prevention simple and cost effective. In addition to locating cables, vScan systems can also be used to locate probes and record routes. Only minimal training is required for safe operation.
TRACTO distributes the vScan & vScanM systems from Vivax-Metrotech because we want to provide our customers with a reliable cable locator for more safety on site.
