Subsite has launched the UtiliGuard 2 RTK (real-time kinematic) receiver. Designed with survey-grade technology and dual-band antennas, the UtiliGuard 2 RTK receiver is ideal for locating abandoned and untracked utilities that are often difficult to pinpoint.

The UtiliGuard 2 RTK receiver gives operators reliable positioning data, enabling them to verify installed utilities and tailor bids to match job site needs. Its capabilities also provide valuable insights into underground infrastructure, helping crews avoid cross-bores during future projects.

Like the UtiliGuard 2 standard and advanced units, the RTK receiver features integrated data capture, GPS positioning, and an intuitive user interface to improve work quality and locate awareness. Additional enhancements include dead-reckoning capabilities, which help operators maintain accurate locates in heavy tree canopy or areas where GPS signals falter. A multi-frequency fault-finding capability also empowers contractors to accurately identify and locate faulted power lines using a broad spectrum of customizable frequencies, up to 10 kHz.

"These enhanced features can help contractors meet growing demand for precision in areas where achieving high accuracy has traditionally been a challenge," said Rodolfo Cabello, Subsite product manager. "Centimetre-grade accuracy and mapping-ready data make the UtiliGuard 2 RTK receiver the ultimate precision tool for contractors seeking to maximize productivity, enhance safety and comply with the latest industry regulations."

To further enhance efficiency in the field, the MyUtiliGuard app enables data capture, mapping, and sharing directly from the RTK receiver. The Subsite Realtime Mapping app also seamlessly logs real-time data with Esri GIS platforms, removing the need for manual data exporting and file conversions.
