The ability of a locating system to perform in the face of active interference (noise) has become a crucial factor in maintaining crew productivity and completing jobs on time. Interference is one of the primary obstacles to completing HDD projects and can impair the accuracy of underground depth measurements. Because interference varies between jobsites, the frequency at which the underground signal is transmitted is the single most important factor affecting your ability to get the job done.
As a leader in the HDD industry, DCI has taken a revolutionary approach to tackling active interference with Falcon technology. Unlike other locating systems, the Falcon frequency optimizer scans for noise between 4.5 kHz and 45 kHz, then clearly displays a chart that depicts the noise levels across several bands. Choose two of the quietest frequency bands, pair with the Falcon wideband transmitter, and get drilling. In areas with varied interference, switch between bands to stabilize data readings and complete the bore. For extreme interference, engage Max Mode for maximum performance.
Get the Job Done
The classic DigiTrak® F2® locating system has earned a reputation as a workhorse locator. With the introduction of Falcon frequency optimization, the DigiTrak Falcon F2 is a more powerful locating system that addresses active interference using a single wideband transmitter. For every jobsite, the Falcon F2 gives you the best frequency to get the job done.
