C.Scope MXL4 Cable Locator

The new C.Scope MXL Locator is a high performance Locator specifically designed to detect, identify and trace specific buried pipes and cables reliably and accurately, even in the most congested areas. It is especially useful for those that wish to identify the route of a particular pipe or cable such as utility technicians of maintenance engineers.

Building on the key features of our CXL and DXL Cable Avoidance Tools, the MXL has the added benefit of three transmitter frequencies and the Signal Current Measurement feature that is a great aid to successful identification of specific pipes and cables.

Used alone, the MXL Locator offers high speed and accurate detection of most buried services. When used in conjunction with the MXT Transmitter and accessories, the MXL Locator becomes a high performance pipe and cable locating and tracing package that will allow long distance and highly selective tracing to be achieved. It is the ideal Locator for those who have to tackle multiple locating applications in the course of their work.

Key Features

  • As with ALL C.Scope digital Cable Avoidance Tools – no yearly calibration checks are required.
  • The MXL locator is available with Bluetooth connectivity to enable communication with mapping and data logging systems.
