vLocDM2

Overview
The vLocDM2 (Defect Mapper) uses the latest locating and signal processing techniques to plot the current gradient of an industry standard low frequency (3Hz or 4Hz) profiling current. The current is applied at CP stations, so the disruption of the pipeline can be minimized.

The non-intrusive measuring device, the vLocDM2 receiver, takes measurements along the pipeline and plots the results directly onto the screen of the receiver. There is no need to carry extra logging and display devices. All the data is displayed and logged into the receiver for downloading to a spreadsheet or dedicated analysis program.

A +/- 3m accuracy GPS antenna comes with the system and is linked to the vLocDM2 receiver via a Bluetooth radio link. The GPS enables the user to generate real-time current gradient graphs and guides the user back to the point of interest by highlighting the user’s position on the graph. This feature is called the “walk back” feature. The system can also be integrated with brand-named high accuracy GPS systems and software packages.

 

The Loc-150Tx, 150W transmitter (vLocDM2 transmitter) is used to apply a signal current to the anode bed. The pipeline returns the signal via coating faults back to the transmitter. The transmitter is designed to be powered from CP (Cathodic Protection) stations, AC or external batteries, eliminating the need for batteries.

MyLocator3 Software

Manage a single or fleet of vLoc3 series utility locators with the free MyLocator3 app. Configure locators by turning on or off features, selecting which frequencies the user has access to and creating custom startup screens. When the locator is connected to a computer running the MyLocator3 software, the program will automatically search our database for the latest software for both the utility locator and desktop application. The utility locator connects to the computer running MyLocator3 by supplied USB cable.



  • Data transfer – MyLocator3 app will download the data collected from the locator including a timestamp, GPS coordinates, depth measurements, current on the line, and notes entered at the time of locate.
  • Software updates – MyLocator3 checks for locator software updates and app software updates whenever connected to internet.
  • Personalize – Add owner/user information, a background picture or logo, or a short message to the startup screen.
  • Lock Feature – The locator’s configurations and settings can be locked, enabling equipment or safety officers to ensure that features selected or removed by management cannot be over ridden by the user. (Requires optional lockout dongle)

VMMap App

When used with Bluetooth enabled Vivax-Metrotech receivers, the VMMap Utility Mapping app records data from the field which is instantly available online via the VMMap Cloud web portal or can be shared by using the email function in the app. Location data is obtained from the mobile phone, or an external GPS device of your choice. Depth readings, GPS coordinates, the distance between locates and more are captured as data logs and can be saved as xls, txt, shp, and kml extension files. The data is compatible with Google Maps, Asset Management, and GIS software.

The image capture feature in the app allows the user to attach a JPEG format image to the surveys. This is useful to add points of interest or a snapshot of the completed survey. Access the image files and all the data captured in the app in the VMMap Cloud web portal or email it from within the app.

The VMMap app generates maps in real time, giving confidence to the field technician that the data being collected is accurate.
