GSSI, a leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, recently announced the release of LineTrac, an accessory to the UtilityScan systems employing either the DF or HS antennas. The LineTrac allows users to detect AC power and induced RF energy present in buried utilities. By combining GPR data with a radio detection sensor, GSSI’s LineTrac accessory is capable of detecting extremely low amplitude AC signals associated with difficult to locate utilities.
LineTrac employs a three-axis 50/60 Hz magnetometer that is used to locate powered and non-powered utilities with accurate, dependable and repeatable performance. LineTrac aids in target discrimination and detection of difficult-to-locate utilities, and features simple integration with UtilityScan systems and their resulting GPR data. LineTrac also features a rugged, IP-65 rated enclosure to ensure long service life even in harsh field conditions.
UtilityScan systems are the industry standard for efficiently identifying and marking the location and depth of subsurface utilities, including gas, sewer, and communication lines. With a number of different cart and antenna configurations, UtilityScan systems can be tailored to meet a wide range of needs. All UtilityScan configurations deliver exceptionally high-quality data and are rugged enough to withstand years of field usage.
