Nagovitsyn Engineering undertakes repair, modernization and production of location equipment for horizontal directional drilling: transmitters, location receivers and remote displays.
Using our "know-how" we can extend operation time of the transmitter from one set of batteries, if necessary, increase the power of the transmitter in the process of renovation and transform single frequency FX series transmitters into dual-frequency transmitters.
We provide our Customers with remote assistance: our consultations often allow to determine what exactly happened with location equipment. Sometimes there is no need to repair the transmitter, location receiver or the remote display — you just need to carefully check and adjust equipment to eliminate interference.
We also sell upgraded transmitters, batteries and storage cells. Nagovitsyn Engineering technical solutions to improve transmitters’ properties are covered by patents and registered applications for inventions. Our experience is reflected in publications in specialized magazines and reports at international conferences.
Our priority objectives:
We sell already restored transmitters for the DigiTrak Mark III-V, Eclipse, F series, Ditch Witch, SubSite 750/752 with the warranty period of 180 days. And we repair transmitters for F5, LT giving 180-days warranty.
We are interested in restoring new transmitters which has only appeared in the sale or rarely used in Russia. If you want to, for example, bring FX12 transmitter (the sixth region, China) back to life, send it to us together with the location system — we will restore your transmitter making it at the same time the dual-frequency transmitter against active interference. The same can be applied to the Chinese location GL.
Repair of any innovation turns into a streamlined process in a year. Today the transmitters for location Mark, Eclipse, SubSite, F2 or F5 go through the standardized repair stages: diagnostic operation, unsealing, replacement of electronic components and spatial position sensors (pitch and roll), reconditioning of the battery compartment, updating and improvement of the antennas, sealing and filling compound with installation of the new enclosure and control of technical parameters.
Experience shows that at repairing transmitters there appear to be new opportunities to improve their performance.
We know how expensive it is to buy a new location
system which may value up to $27.695, or more. Our “hobby” — is repair
of location systems renounced by other service companies. Repair is done in Russia. Today we have
found the way to quickly send transmitters to our Customers and get them for repair. But we are still
looking for the ways to forward the location system itself for repair to us, to Russia.
If you have any suggestions, we are ready to cooperate, please, e-mail to:
In fact, every fourth contacting us about a “broken” location ends with the remote “repair” of the location system after detailed consultations. It turns out that either it is all a matter of interference or location misconfiguration, or in the defective transmitter, or in bad batteries.
Request for a free consultation. If you are in any doubt as to whether your
location is defective or not e-mail to
“The first three transmitters were repaired in 1999. I started doing this to help my friend from the University. Later, I found out that the transmitters which had been considered non-repairable turned out to be quite operational after the repair.”Alexander Leonidovich Nagovitsyn — the founder and the Head of “Nagovitsyn Engineering” LCC.
Nagovitsyn Engineering was founded by Alexander Nagovitsyn in Chelyabinsk (Russia) and together with his friends-engineers they started repair of transmitters series Mark produced by DCI for HDD. Later they continued with transmitters series Eclipse, SubSite 750/752 Tracker. Nowadays the assortment of repaired transmitters is far beyond thirty brands, and it is still growing.

Drilling companies work with DCI and DigiTrak, DitchWitch and SubSite transmitters worldwide. We restore transmitters for Russia, CIS, for the EU countries and North America.
In Russia we have offices in major cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Chelyabinsk, Novosibirsk, Tyumen. In each city there are warehouses with transmitters, storage cells for location systems and batteries for transmitters. Delivery time is 1-3 days throughout Russia.
Shipping to other countries has its own peculiarities due to customs laws. Together we will find a way to ship transmitters for repair or sale under the contract. We have already delivered our transmitters to America, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Colombia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, South Africa.
We have transmitters in Russia, CIS, the European Union countries and North America. The map of presence was drawn in 2010.
If you are engaged in sales of HDD equipment and you have contacts among
HDD companies, we offer you to become our representative. Dealer discounts reach 50%.
We can provide uninterrupted deliveries of transmitters, quick return/exchange of transmitters on the warranty.
We can help with promotional material: photos, specifications; prepare instructions how to work with our
improved transmitters. Send your application for dealership via email:
Your success is our priority!
We will tell you how to work under interference conditions, how to measure real depth and which batteries to choose prior to drilling. You will find operation instructions for location systems and transmitters. And we will also give you valuable information on innovative transmitters which will help you to overcome difficult locations. Join us on Facebook.
