UtiliGuard 2 is a multifrequency utility locator based on the company’s UtiliGuard system.
Available in standard and advanced models, the unit builds on the original with new capabilities, including an all-new user interface, integrated data capture, and GPS positioning. The user interface was designed with industry specialists and trainers to feature simplified graphics that are easier and faster to interpret, Subsite says.
Operators will notice an obvious change in screen layout when directly over a utility locate, providing positive confirmation. The advanced model features Ambient Interference Measurement technology that automatically recommends the best signal frequency. It also offers a 5- watt or 12-watt transmitter that drives signals farther down large, direct-buried utilities. The system also provides both the horizontal and vertical distance (depth) to the utility to enable users to make accurate locates of obstructed utilities.
