Multi & High Frequency Locator - 512Hz / 8kHz / 480kHz & 60Hz

The VM-560 Series Compact Multi Frequency Locator by Vivax-Metrotech is the latest generation of the very popular and affordable Metrotech 500 series legacy locators. The new VM-560 incorporates a state-of-the-art digital electronics platform, digital display, advanced gain control, *push-button depth, offering faster and accurate location of cable drops and pipes. In addition the use of ABS and Carbon-Fiber materials make the new VM-500 series one of the most affordable and light weight locators ever developed. The VM-560 is equipped with 512Hz & 8kHz & 480kHz. The 512Hz & 8kHz frequency is ideal for most pipe and cable locating and offers *push-button depth. The very high frequency 480kHz is unique and legendary for its ability to locate gas, water pipe, and tracer wire, especially when direct connection is simply not an option.

Application: 480kHz is known to locate all difficult conductors, concentric neutral cables, street light circuits, and damaged tracer wires.
Frequencies: 60Hz (passive), 512Hz, 8kHz & 480kHz (using transmitter), 8KFF (using VM-510FFL a-frame)
