GSSI UtilityScan DF Compact Set System

Demo-used condition GSSI UtilityScan DF with 300/800 MHz Dual-Frequency Digital Antenna comes with a Panasonic G1 controller. This complete bundled system sets the new standard in performance, price and increases your efficiency.



Demo used condition GSSI UtilityScan DF with 300/800 MHz Dual-Frequency Digital Antenna comes with a Panasonic G1 controller. The combination of two frequencies allows users to locate targets at depths of up to 7m (21ft), ideal for utility, archaeological and environmental surveys. This complete bundled system sets the new standard in performance, price and increases your efficiency

The UtilityScan DF is ideal for locating the position and depth of metallic and non-metallic objects, including service utilities such as gas, communications, 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 touch screen 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/16ft. (in  North America). With an operation life of up to eight hours and survey speed up to 10km/h (6.25mph), data collection is fast and efficient. Advanced software features offer the user several options to view the data;  each channel individually, both channels separated via split-screen, or our patent-pending blend mode. The UtilityScan DF also provides advanced signal processing tools such as attacking, signal floor tracking, and background removal.
