(Norcross, GA, USA, December 10, 2015) – Leica Geosystems, leader of measurement and reality capture technologies, released today the Leica ULTRA underground service locating system for site engineers and underground utility specialists who need to trace buried utility lines accurately for safe underground excavations and utility surveys.
Outstanding performance with operational ease and flexibility help users attain the highest accuracy to avoid costly mistakes, such as cutting utility lines or delaying project schedules during excavation work. By providing a wide range of transmitter mode frequencies operators in segments such as power, water, gas or telecom can easily and quickly optimise the locator performance in any operating condition. Users save time and effort by tracing utility depths and distances. Multiple utilities in close proximity requiring a combination of adjustments can also be traced efficiently and with confidence.
Faster, easier interpretation with reduced downtime
Clear visualisations of line direction and depth indication are displayed on a large LCD interface. Users can easily interpret signal displays in all light conditions. Bluetooth® enables quick connectivity so users can easily transfer data to a GIS data collector.
“The Leica ULTRA enables operators to achieve ‘best in class’ locating and tracing expectations,” said Richard Fling, business development manager, Leica Geosystems. “Encompassing an array of high specification features, the Leica ULTRA is optimised specifically for utility tracing, enabling the path of a service to be accurately found while keeping utility specialists safe.”
