C.Scope DXL3 Cable Avoidance Tool

The new C.Scope DXL Cable Avoidance Tool is a high performance Locator developed using the latest in advanced digital signal processing technology. It is the most modern design of Locator available and can determine the exact location and depth of buried pipes and cables immediately prior to any form of excavation work taking place, day or night.

Building on the key features of our classic Cable Avoidance Tool, the DXL series provides you with three advance detection modes for added convenience; this includes:

  • Power – The quickest way to detect most buried electricity cables by detecting the signal created by the electrical current itself.
  • Radio – Detects re-radiated Radio type signals that are often present on metal pipes and cables allowing their position to be determined using just the Cable Avoidance Tool alone.
  • Generator – Used to detect the signal applied to a metal pipe or cable by a C.Scope SGA3 Signal Generator.

When combined with a C.Scope SGA or SGV Signal Generator and accessories, the DXL3 Cable Avoidance Tool becomes a versatile, all round pipe and cable locating and tracing package. Robustly made and equipped with LCD meter with automatic backlight, detachable loudspeaker and easy-to-operate fingertip controls, the C.Scope DXL Cable Avoidance Tool is the ideal tool for those needing to detect buried services quickly and with confidence.

The depth measurement feature allows you to determine exactly how deep pipes and cables are buried with the simple push of a button.

The DXL locator is available with Bluetooth connectivity to enable communication with mapping and data logging systems.

As with ALL C.Scope digital Cable Avoidance Tools – no yearly calibration checks are required.
