  • Description

    C.Scope SGA3 Signal Generator

    Designed for use with C.Scope Cable Avoidance Tools, the C.Scope SGA3 Signal Generator produces a 33kHz signal which can be conveyed through underground pipes and cables and then picked up by the appropriate cable locator. It greatly increases the range of underground cables and pipes that can be located, thus preventing costly contact with pipes and cables.

    The C.Scope SGA3 can energise a subterranean pipe or cable either through direct connection with the target or through the induction method from above the ground so it is very effective as a transmitter. This allows it to locate different underground obstacles including street lighting cables.

    Two power levels allow the user to adjust the signal strength of the C.Scope SGA3 and the pulse and continuous modes help maintain location accuracy in high-interference zones. A clear audible signal sounds when the SGA3 is in operation although it also has an audio-mute button.

    The C.Scope SGA3 has an in-built accessory tray and is fully weatherproof to IP65 standard. It is fully portable and has a three-year warranty.

    C.Scope part number: CSSGA-33 SGA3
