DXL4 Cable Locator:
Innovative new features have been introduced and the popular existing modes of detection have been enhanced to allow the DXL4 Cable Avoidance Tool to successfully detect even the hardest to find pipes and cables. Particular attention has been paid to effect better working practices and to minimise the potential for human error to impact on operating performance.
IMPROVED PERFORMANCE ACROSS ALL FOUR DETECTION MODES
The DXL4 Cable Avoidance Tool has improved performance across all modes of detection; Power, Radio, Generator and AllScan, whilst remaining easy to operate ensuring there is only a minimal need for training or retraining.
The DXL4 when used alongside an SGA4 or SGV4 Signal Generator will measure and indicate the depth of buried pipes, cables and sondes at the push of a button.
The simultaneous dual-frequency 33kHz and 131kHz signal output of the Signal Generators is ideal for maximising the number of buried services that can be energised and then detected, providing a significant improvement in the detection of the smaller diameter or poorly earthed cables.
Optimised Locator Sensitivity and Noise Rejection means that the DXL4 can deal with the highest levels of background interference found, allowing even the weakest of signals to be detected successfully.
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 DXL4-D and DXL4-DBG Cable Avoidance Tools have full data logging capability. A years worth of data can be stored, in normal usage, on both the Cable Avoidance Tool and the SGV4 Signal Generator.
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 DXL4 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 DXL4 Cable Avoidance Tools 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 SGV4 Signal Generator 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 DXL4 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 DXL4s twin wall construction is robust and durable. It also provides IP65 standard protection against dust and water ingress.
The DXL4 comes with a three year Warranty (conditions apply).
SGA4 Signal Generator:
The C.Scope SGA4 is an affordable Signal Generator designed for use alongside a CXL4 or DXL4 Cable Avoidance Tool. It enables significantly more underground utilities to be detected including street lighting cables.
The simultaneous dual-frequency 33kHz and 131kHz signal output of the Signal Generators is ideal for maximising the number of buried services that can be energised and then detected.
The SGA4 Signal Generator can apply the dual frequency signal 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.
THREE SIGNAL APPLICATION TECHNIQUES
The SGA4 offers three alternative ways to apply a Signal Generator signal:
Direct Connection allows specific pipes or cables to be individually traced, identified and their depths measured. The use of Signal Clamps, Signal Injectors and Direct Connection leads make this mode the most effective method for pinpointing pipes and cables.
If it is difficult or inconvenient to use Direct Connection, then the Wraparound technique can be utilised to successfully energise a street or car park lighting cable.
Induction allows the Signal Generator to induce a detectable and traceable signal to previously unknown, undetected or inaccessible underground metal pipes or cables.
HIGH POWER SIGNAL
The fully adjustable One Watt Power Output of the SGA4 means that deeper and less conducting pipes and cables can be effectively energised and then traced over ever longer distances.
It also features a two position power levels so the operator has some control of how much power is in use and when.
PULSED/CONTINUOUS SIGNAL OUTPUT
A Pulsed or Continuous signal output allows operators to switch to the Pulsed Mode at the push of a button in high interference situations and keep on tracing. The SGA4 has a clear audible signal output to indicate when it is in operation.
A useful in-built audio mute control is also included.
ROBUST AND DURABLE CONSTRUCTION
The SGA4s twin wall construction is robust and durable. It also provides IP65 standard protection against dust and water ingress.
The SGA4 Signal Generator has a large detachable accessory tray as its base. It can house not only the standard accessories (Direct Connection Leads, Earth Stake, Connection Magnets, 10m Auxiliary Earth Lead) and the Instruction Manual but also many of the optional extras such as Signal Clamps, Sondes and Signal Injectors.
THREE YEAR WARRANTY
The SGA4 comes with a three year Warranty (conditions apply).
