EXI rents the new GSSI UtilityScan Dual Frequency

EXI is the only place to rent the new GSSI  UtilityScan™ DF ground penetrating radar system for utility locating. The UtilityScan DF uses GPR to create an image of the subsurface. Using this technology, utility locators can detect both metallic and non-metallic objects, including; service utilities such as gas, communications, and sewer lines, as well as underground storage tanks and PVC pipes in various soils. The UtilityScan DF is purpose-built and offers an easy-to-use touchscreen interface to view shallow and deep targets simultaneously in a single scan.

The new dual-frequency 300 MHz and 800 MHz antenna is GSSI’s first digital antenna, allowing the operator to locate targets at depths of up to 5 m/16 ft. (in North America). With an operation life of up to eight hours and survey speed up to 
10 km/h (6.25 mph), data collection is fast and efficient.
