TERATRAK

Digital Control Inc TeraTrak R1 HDD Locating Systems available at Vermeer Midwest (888) 809-5640

The Wheel, Reinvented.

A major challenge of today’s bore plans is that they often become irrelevant a few rods in.

The TeraTrak™ R1 generates continuous job site topography and gives you the vital data to create and update your bore plan on-the-fly, so it never becomes obsolete.

A New Dimension in Bore Planning

  • Visualize underground hazards
  • Target waypoints to drill with more confidence
  • Rugged, reliable and waterproof hardware
  • High Accuracy (± 2in over 500ft)
  • Designed to Integrate with the DCI Product Suite

does the math for you

Real-time terrain mapping allows you to easily create a continuous topography marked with utilities and waypoints

  • Measure and map precise elevations and distances along your drill path
  • Use in areas where GPS doesn’t work

fewer re-drills

TeraTrak™ R1 helps you solve bore plan problems on-the-fly.

  • No Bent Rods
  • Determine rig placement with a rod-by-rod entry plan
  • Create point-to-point bore plans as you go

cost saving

As you walk along the projected bore path, the R1 builds a terrain map in real-time. You can add utilities, waypoints, pins and notes to share with your crew or customers.

  • Faster Bores and Cost Saving
  • Export TeraTrak data for use in bore planners
