The vLoc3-RTK-Pro from Vivax-Metrotech is the industry's first all-in-one utility locator with a built-in RTK (Real-Time Kinematic) GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) technology providing centimeter-level survey-grade accuracy. In addition, using its internal cellular module with 4G LTE capabilities, the locate technician now can connect to the NTRIP RTK caster that provides RTCM3 corrections. As a result, the vLoc3-RTK is perfect for utility mapping.
The RTK-GNSS allows for precision line marking and survey-grade accuracy mapping to coincide. Technicians can perform a regular utility line marking procedure with data collection logs by pressing a single button. GPS data is stored in the cloud automatically via its built-in 4G LTE cellular connection. The technician's input ends when the ordinary pipe & cable locate is completed. The data is in the cloud in real-time and ready for mapping and is also stored onboard the locator, available for export for review and use with other compatible mapping software. For RTK accuracy, users connect to an NTRIP RTK caster that can provide RTCM 3 correction data.
Technicians can also locate and GNSS mark utility pipes & cables, meters, manholes, valves, hydrants, and any utility attribute on any job site. This versatility provides for complete utility mapping in real-time from the instrument. A properly set-up vLoc3-RTK with service is all any technician would ever need to produce survey-grade utility maps in just a few minutes after arriving at the job site.
The vLoc3-RTK-Pro includes all the same functionality and features as the vLoc3-Pro receiver.
