CSCOPE DXL4 Cable/Pipe Locator System

col-2dxl2-depth-cable-avoidance-tool

The C.Scope DXL4 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 DXL4 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.

    FOUR DETECTION MODES
    The DXL2 has four detection modes to select from each mode providing it's own specific advantages:

    POWER mode identifies buried electricity cables by detecting the mains frequency signal travelling 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 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 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.

    DEPTH MEASUREMENT
    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.

    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 TEST (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 LOGGING
    The DXL2 is available with or without the option of Data Logging. The Data Logging versions will automatically record how and when it is being used. Over 12months of data (in normal use) can be stored before being overwritten. A full audit trail is kept of all activity so that it is possible to see when the Cable Avoidance Tool passed Self Tests, which Modes have been used, when, and for how long.

    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.

    DATA LOG ANALYSIS
    C.Scopes FREE to download XL2 Edition PC Toolkit allows manipulation of the stored data-logs into charts and graphs that illustrate all aspects of the use. The data can be used to show correct usage in addition to assisting the identification of actual operator behaviour and any training requirements.

    LCD CLEAR DIGITAL DISPLAY
    The DXL2 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.

    FINGERTIP CONTROLS
    The DXL2s ergonomic controls offer easy singlehanded sensitivity adjustments and mode selection.

    DETACHABLE SPEAKER
    The speaker can be easily detached for use in noisy work environments.

    DATA CONNECTION
    The DXL2 features a data connection socket for transferring data to a PC using the C.Scope XL2 Edition PC Toolkit.

    ROBUST AND DURABLE CONSTRUCTION
    The DXL2s twin wall construction is robust and durable. It also provides IP65 standard protection against dust and water ingress.

    MAINTENANCE & CALIBRATION
    If maintenance is required the Automatic Daily Self Test (ADST) will alert the user to please contact an authorised C.Scope Service centre for assistance.

    SYSTEM VALIDATION CERTIFICATION
    The C.Scope XL2 Edition PC Toolkit allows owners to print a System Validation Certificate by connecting the Cable Avoidance Tool to a PC via USB. The results are generated from the ADST results that are stored on the Cable Avoidance Tool.

    SERVICE
    A complete covers off service & maintenance package is available for those customers who require it from C.Scope Authorised Service Centres.
