Unlike traditional locating systems, both Mag 3 and Mag 6 receivers boast two independent antennae. The result: superior locating accuracy. Incorporating state-of-the-art digital signal processing and comms design, the Mag 3 and 6 receivers deliver exceptional depth – up to 190 feet.

Interference – a huge problem in today’s congested HDD environment – is tamed by the availability of multiple frequency choices in both the Mag 3 and Mag 6 models. Read how a Houston contractor addressed tough urban interference with a Mag 3 here.

The Mag 3 and 6 use the powerful Echo Series transmitters. Available in either single or multiple frequency versions, Echo Series transmitters feature two power levels that can be changed via the receiver or down-hole.
