C.Scope DXL2 Cable Avoidance Tool

  • The DXL2 is a new modern and high performance CAT with Depth Measurement that has been designed to set a new benchmark in excavating safety as well as still delivering all the advantages and operating practices associated with the original C.Scope product range.

    FAMILIAR OPERATING TECHNIQUE & METHOD
    The DXL2 Cable Avoidance Tool has four familiar detection modes (POWER, RADIO, GENERATOR AND ALLSCAN) to select from. Each mode provides its own specific advantages. Many operators will be familiar with these operating modes from using traditional Cable Avoidance Tools and Generators.

    IMPROVED PERFORMANCE
    The depth measuring DXL2 Cable Avoidance Tool delivers improved signal detection sensitivity and better noise rejection so it is capable of detecting the smallest of signals even in areas of high service density and electrical noise. The addition of the new simultaneous dual 33+131kHz frequency will assist in the detection of smaller buried pipes and cables such as telecoms, sheathed fibre optics and street lighting spurs.

    SAFER WORKING PRACTICES
    Human error can be a contributory factor associated with cable strikes. To address this issue, intelligent features such as an Automatic Daily Self Test function and a dynamic Swing Sensor help ensure that best working practices are adhered to and being applied on-site. The optional Data Logging can also provide an invaluable insight into working practices that can help to identify potential training requirements.

    The new DXL2 offers a significant step forward in the quest to reduce the day-to-day risk of cable strikes.
