The C.Scope DXL2 is a digital Cable Avoidance Tool with depth measurement that is loaded with new features which enable operators to find more buried utilities by delivering improved levels of performance and helping to reduce the effects of human error.
The DXL2 has a number of features designed to help reduce the risk of cable strikes, such as a built-in Automatic Daily Self Test, which checks the locator is working to its optimum before use at the start of each day of use. This protects the operator from unknowingly using a faulty safety product. These developments from C.Scope ensure that the DXL2 is fully functional BEFORE USE each day – rather than having to rely on manual function checking.
When used with an SGA2 or SGV2 Signal Generator the depth of buried pipes, cables and sondes can be indicated at the push of a button.
Four detection modes
The CXL2 and DXL2 have four detection modes to select from. Each mode provides specific advantages.
POWER mode identifies buried electricity cables by detecting the mains frequency signal traveling along the cable itself when current is being drawn.
RADIO mode detects re-radiated Radio type signals that are often present on metal pipes and cables.
GENERATOR mode is used to detect the 33 + 131kHz signal applied to a pipe or cable by a SGA2 or SGV2 Signal Generator. The combination of a high frequency with the 33kHz signal enables small diameter cables to be located more easily. The Generator mode should also be used when detecting the signal from a C.Scope Sonde when tracing in non-metallic pipes such as plastic and clay.
ALLSCAN mode detects ALL frequencies of a signal from the lowest of the Power signals right up to and including 33kHz. This mode can detect unusual signals appearing in the frequency gaps between conventional Power, Radio and Generator modes and is invaluable as a final check before excavation.
Dynamic swing sensor
The DXL2 will sound a single tone to alert the operator that the Locator is being swung excessively. This will help operators maintain correct technique during every search.
Automatic daily self-text (ADST)
The DXL2 has comprehensive self-test circuitry. ADST tests the Locator including the receiving aerials for correct performance each day when it is first switched on. As well as storing the test result for later reference if needed, the ADST gives the operator confidence that the Locator is working to its optimum before use at the start of each day.
Data log transfer via USB
Data from the Data Logging version of the DXL2 can be transferred at any time to a PC for analysis via the data connection socket in the battery compartment.
