Leica Geosystems ULTRA Utility Locator (5 Watt)


A utility strike occurs every minute in the United States. One of the most cited reasons for strikes is insufficient locating practices. EM locators are the most common tool to reduce the likelihood of damages.

Save time and increase confidence in your results with the Leica ULTRA, an advanced precision utility tracing instrument.

The complexity of underground utility networks is continually increasing, and obtaining precise information on the location of buried utilities has never been more important. The protection of buried assets during excavation work demands accurate mapping and surveying of existing utilities.

This system is optimised specifically for utility tracing

  • Configuration for challenging environments
    Optimise the instrument to overcome the most challenging and complex site conditions. The Leica ULTRA locator can be configured for different project environments and has more than 100 programmable operating frequencies available. 
  • Best frequencies in congested environment
    When working in congested environments, the Leica ULTRA incorporates Ambient Interference Measurement (AIM), which digitally analyses the surrounding area for noise and recommends the best frequencies for accurate utility tracing.
  • Trace utilities through any obstruction
    There will always be an occasion when the utility runs close to or underneath an obstruction. With Offset Measuring, the Leica ULTRA locates the target line if not directly accessible from above. The function uses the available data to estimate the horizontal and vertical (depth) distance.
  • Clear operational display
    Clear graphical LCD screen, with auto-pinpointing directional arrows. Ensure confident and fast tracing in all operating conditions, day or night, with the large backlit display.
  • GNSS & GIS integration
    True one man, single-step data capture solution for buried utility mapping or surveying applications. Leica ULTRA integrates with GNSS or GIS data capture devices.
