Subsite Electronics;

Subsite Electronics introduced UtiliGuard 2, a new multi-frequency utility locator based on the popular UtiliGuard system. Available in Standard and Advanced models, UtiliGuard 2 takes all the proven performance-boosting features of the original UtiliGuard and adds several important new capabilities, such as an all-new user interface, integrated data capture, and GPS positioning. 

“UtiliGuard 2 automatically captures data without altering the operator’s normal workflow,” said Richard Fling, Utility Locating Product Manager. “This data can be used by operators to verify their performance and demonstrate quality and process compliance in the field. Supervisors can also use this data to track performance, compare it with benchmarks and enable actionable outcomes to be implemented. This reporting and auditing capability helps increase quality, reduce cable strikes and increase productivity across multiple crews.”

In addition to data-logging capabilities, UtiliGuard 2 introduces integrated GPS positioning to the product line, offering improved activity reporting to a system already known for accurate performance.

Like the original, the UtiliGuard 2 Advanced model features Ambient Interference Measurement (AIM) technology that automatically recommends the best signal frequency. A 5-watt or 12-watt transmitter drives signals farther down large, direct-buried utilities. The system also provides both the horizontal and vertical distance (depth) to the utility, enabling users to make accurate locates of obstructed utilities.
