    C.Scope CXL4-DBG Bluetooth Datalogging Cable Avoidance Tool

    The C.Scope CXL4-DBG Cable Avoidance Tool is a datalogging, smart cable locator that features a large internal memory and Bluetooth® connectivity. It can detect even the most hidden metal cables and pipes and is therefore ideal for pre-excavation checks in the utilities, construction and rail industries.

    As a standalone instrument, the C.Scope CXL4-DBG can operate in power or radio mode. The power mode detects the signal emitted by live electric current in subterranean cables whilst radio mode can pick up on radio-type signal emitted by metallic pipes or cables underground.

    When used in conjunction with a signal generator, the C.Scope CXL4-DBG is capable of detecting a wide range of underground services. This is especially pertinent when using the SGV4 Signal Generator which can produce frequencies of 33kHz and 131kHz, the latter of which is useful for detecting thin, short or unearthed cables.

    Finally, the AllScan mode can detect a very wide frequency range which allows it to perform comprehensive inspections and check the accuracy of findings in the other three modes.

    The CXL4-DBG’s AlarmZone™ feature warns the user when shallow cables are detected. The trigger depth can be adjusted according to the user’s preference. The swing indicator helps avoid user error by warning if the locator is being swung excessively. An Auto Self Test function means that calibration is not required with this locator whilst Peak Hold ensures accuracy by freezing the strongest signal value detected.

    Information from inspections is clearly displayed on the C.Scope CXL4-DBG’s backlit LCD screen. Readings are saved to the internal memory of the locator which has enough storage for roughly 12 months’ data. Data transfer can be carried out via Bluetooth® or USB with analysis available with the C.Scope PC Toolkit and the C.Scope Relay Android App. Integrated GPS can provide a physical location stamp and Bluetooth® connection to local GPS Survey equipment enables 'one-pass' underground utility surveys.

    Weatherproof IP65-rated casing means that the C.Scope CXL4-DBG is ideal for use in challenging conditions and there is also a three-year manufacturer’s warranty. An SGA4 or an SGV4 Signal Generator can be added to this purchase by using the checkboxes above.
