The MXL4 Precision Locator represents a significant advance in cable detecting and tracing capabilities.
Innovative new features have been introduced enabling the MXL4 Locator and MXT4 Transmitter to provide high-end precision performance and a far more flexible approach to pipe and cable location.
The MXL4 is able to quickly and accurately detect, pinpoint, trace and identify the widest range of pipes and cables.
Optimized Locator Sensitivity and Noise Rejection means that the MXL4 can deal with the highest levels of background interference found, allowing even the weakest of signals to be detected successfully.
The MXT4 Transmitter now has a greater range of transmitting frequencies allowing improved long distance tracing and utility identification, even on the most congested of sites. A range of frequencies from 512/640Hz up to 131kHz and including the simultaneous dual-frequency 33kHz and 131kHz signal output is ideal for maximizing the number of buried services that can be energized and then detected. The MXL4 can apply these frequency signals without direct connection to buried services, using either a Signal Clamp or the simple induction method from ground level, providing a significant improvement in the detection of the smaller diameter or poorly earthed cables.
The MXL4 when used alongside an MXT4 Transmitter will measure and indicate the depth of buried pipes, cables and sondes at the push of a button.
SIGNAL CURRENT MEASUREMENT
The MXL4 can monitor the true strength of the MXT4 Transmitter signal applied to a buried service irrespective of its depth. This is ideal for identifying the layout of a pipe or cable network.
INTELLIGENT NEW FEATURES:
AlarmZone™ alerts operators to the presence of particularly shallow pipes or cables with the exact trigger depth adjustable by the user to best suit local requirements.
DYNAMIC SWING SENSOR
The Dynamic SwingSensor which gently alerts the operator if the locator is being swung excessively, potentially compromising the accuracy of any locates.
PeakHold allows operators to quickly and confidently pinpoint the exact position of buried services
The MXL4-D and MXL4-DBG Locators have full data logging capability. A years worth of data can be stored, in normal usage, on both the Locator and the MXT4 Transmitter.
DATA LOG TRANSFER via USB
This can be conveniently transferred at any time to supervisors for analysis via a USB cable to a PC (or wirelessly via Bluetooth™ from the DBG model only to a PC, tablet or smartphone).
C.SCOPE PC ‘TOOLKIT’ and ‘RELAY’ Smartphone App
The free-to-download C.Scope PC Toolkit and C.Scope Relay smartphone App analyses the stored data-logs into charts and graphs that illustrate all aspects of the use allowing training requirements to be quickly identified.
The MXL4 Cable Avoidance Tools do not require periodic recalibration. A fully Automatic Daily Self Test (ADST) tests and confirms that they are functioning at their optimum level each day.
AUTOMATIC DAILY SELF TEST (ADST)
The MXL4 Locators perform an Automatic Daily Self Test (ADST). The ADST checks the functionality of the locator including the receiving aerials each day when it is first switched on. The MXT4 Transmitter also performs a comprehensive Automatic Daily Self Test (ADST)
At the start of each day of use, a positive Automatic Daily Self Test result gives confirmation to the operator that the kit is working at the optimum level.HIGH RESOLUTION BACKLIT DIGITAL DISPLAY
The MXL4 has a large, clear and easy to read backlit LCD mounted behind a protective polycarbonate lens. The display indicates detection mode, signal peak level, depth, signal strength and battery condition. It also displays the Automatic Daily Self Test results.
The speaker can be easily detached for use in noisy work environments.
ROBUST AND DURABLE CONSTRUCTION
The MXL4s twin wall construction is robust and durable. It also provides IP65 standard protection against dust and water ingress.
The MXL4 comes with a three year Warranty (conditions apply).
