GEAR: Ditch Witch UtiliGuard recommends frequency to locate utilities faster
| August 06, 2013
The tool uses what Ditch Witch calls Ambient Interference Measurement (AIM), which scans the area for noise before recommending the best frequency to use for a fast and accurate location of the utilities underfoot.
Controlled through a six-button interface with an LCD display that can be read in direct sunlight, the UtiliGuard offers 70 frequencies and reports both width and depth to the utility. The scanner’s dual-output feature allows operators to connect the UtiliGuard to two utilities at once. Once connected the user can connect the scanner a wide range of devices via Bluetooth to transmit data.
The UtiliGuard’s rugged housing boasts an IP65 rating that keeps the electronics inside safe from dust, dirt and water.
