The high-performance Falcon F5 tackles complex jobs with active and passive interference using the most advanced toolset available. The Falcon F5 system includes advanced features like DataLog®, iGPS™, fluid pressure monitoring, and dual frequency bands. Falcon F5 tackles the biggest obstacles to completing your underground drilling projects: passive and active interference.

Maintain depth and data readings through interference sources including:

  • Traffic signal loops
  • Overhead power
  • Concrete with rebar
  • Unseen interference sources
  • Active Interference Analysis
  • Frequency Optimization (125 ft depth/150 ft data range)
  • Sub-k™ rebar capability

 

Easy operation for both pros and first-time users:

  • Ball-in-the-Box™ guidance technology you already know
  • Up and running fast with easy toggle-based menu navigation
  • Quickly find optimum frequencies for today’s job site
  • DigiTrak Falcon Scanning
  • DigiTrak Falcon Optimization
  • DigiTrak Falcon Pairing

 

As-Built Made Easy:

Meet client needs for documenting the bore. Take a depth reading and record data with a single click of the trigger. With drill data uploaded to the cloud using LWD Mobile, a supervisor can view the pilot bore before the drill head is off.

  • Log-While-Drilling (LWD)
  • Integrated iGPS (optional)
  • DigiTrak DataLog Management (DDM)

 

Active Interference Analysis:

  • Unseen interference along the bore path often prevents a clean signal from the transmitter to the receiver.
  • Interference is everywhere; it varies between jobsites and over time
  • Avoiding the impact of interference is critical to a successful bore
  • Increased power output from the transmitter is insufficient to overcome interference

 

Falcon Frequency Optimization:

  • Finding the best frequencies to use among hundreds reduces the effect of interference during the bore.
  • Falcon identifies and analyzes active interference between 4.5 and 45 kHz
  • For passive (rebar) interference, Falcon analyzes frequencies down to 0.3 kHz
  • Falcon determines the best frequencies for optimum performance

 

Choose and Pair Bands:

  • Falcon allows you to determine the two best bands.
  • Easily visualize the lowest interference across 9 bands
  • Choose the best two bands for jobsite conditions
  • Pair both bands to the Falcon transmitter

Meet client needs for documenting the bore. Take a depth reading and record data with a single click of the trigger. With drill data uploaded to the cloud using LWD Mobile, a supervisor can view the pilot bore before the drill head is off.

 

Transmitters:

The DigiTrak Falcon F5® transmitter supports hundreds of frequencies between .33 kHz – .75 kHz and 4.5 – 45 kHz. Operators can avoid active and passive interference by choosing the two optimum bands for the current site. Available in 19”, 15” and 8” lengths.
Falcon F5 also supports our popular DucTrak transmitters.
