Description Metrotech Vivax 850

Dual Antenna Audio Frequency Line Tracer

The NEW VM-850 (low frequency) is used mainly for:
Pipeline Location
Power Cable Location

Metrotech, one of the original names in Pipe & Cable locating, has been producing the well tried and tested 810/850 for over forty years. 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/VM-850 without losing the features and performance that made it successful. We believe we have met the challenge - the new VM-850 combines the classic look with stunning simplicity and performance - if you liked the classic Metrotech 850 you will love the new one.
The instrument includes a distance sensitive left/right guidance systemTM (pioneered by Metrotech) to provide accurate easy locating. The 810/850 are the locators of choice for many Customers around the world.

What’s changed ……
New Housings - more durable and water resistant
Digital Electronics
Directional Orientation (Line Direction Indicator) – a new feature to indicate orientation to the buried line
Fast Response “Simulated Analogue Display” for Speed & Reliability

The antenna system in the locator is different to a normal locator. Instead of placing Antennas on the same center line – one antenna is offset to the right and another to the left.This enables the locator to find which antenna is receiving the strongest signal and therefore indicate which direction one has to move to be over the buried line. Differential Left/Right location provides a much sharper crisp response making the position of the buried line easier to pinpoint.
