Surface Guidance. No Wires.

The Beacon Tracker System enables tracking under obstacles where a conventional wire coil cannot be placed. Designed to work in conjunction with the entire selection of ParaTrack tools, the Beacon Tracker provides an external reference for verification of sub-surface location without the need to lay and survey a surface coil, yet works at considerably deeper depths than walk-over systems, providing an additional margin of safety prior to punch-out with minimal setup time. The Beacon Tracker is flexible in its positioning, able to be placed away from the center line of the bore for ease of setup.

Available in two sizes, the smaller unit being lightweight enough to be carried by hand with an easy to set up tripod system for leveling and all-day operation from a standard automotive battery. Range is up to 300’ radially. The larger unit is functionally identical to the standard Beacon, but stretches the range up to 600’ for the most challenging projects. The Beacon Tracker System is yet another innovation stretching the boundaries of what is possible from the engineers and scientists at Vector Magnetics.
