The new XL4 range of Cable Avoidance Tools and Signal Generators from C.Scope represent a significant advance in cable detecting and tracing performance.

Innovative new features have been introduced and popular existing modes of detection have been enhanced to allow the XL4 range of Cable Avoidance Tools and Signal Generators to successfully detect even the hardest to find pipes and cables. Particular attention has been paid to minimise the potential for human error to impact on operating performance and to effect better working practices.

The XL4 range of Cable Avoidance Tools now have improved performance across all modes of detection; Power, Radio, Generator and AllScan, whilst remaining easy to operate ensuring there is only a minimal need for training or retraining.

Intelligent features such as PeakHold allows operators to quickly and confidently pinpoint the exact position of buried services. A clever AlarmZone™ feature alerts operators to the presence of particularly shallow pipes or cables with the exact trigger depth adjustable by the user to best suit local requirements. And a dynamic SwingSensor gently alerts the operator if the Locator is being swung excessively, potentially compromising the accuracy of any locates.

The XL4 Cable Avoidance Tools and Signal Generators do not require periodic recalibration. A fully Automatic Daily Self Test (ADST) tests and confirms that the Cable Avoidance Tools and the Signal Generator are functioning at their optimum level each day.

The new XL4 range of C.Scope Cable Avoidance Tools and Signal Generators retain the reliability and durability expected of all C.Scope products and now come with a Three Year Warranty.

The C.Scope CXL4 Cable Avoidance Tool has four detecting modes, each with their own unique advantages.

POWER Mode: The quickest way to detect most buried electricity cables by detecting the signal created by the electrical current itself.

RADIO Mode: Detects re-radiated "radio" type signals that are often present on metal pipes and cables allowing their position to be determined using the CXL alone.

GENERATOR Mode: Used to detect the signal applied to a metal pipe or cable by a C.Scope SGA or SGV Signal Generator. In addition the Generator mode can be used to detect the signal being transmitted by a C.Scope Sonde for non-metallic pipe tracing.

ALLSCAN Mode: Detects ALL frequencies of signal from the lowest of the Power signals right up to and including 33kHz. This great all-in-one mode can detect unusual frequency signals often overlooked in the conventional Power, Radio and Generator modes and can often speed up the locating process with just one sweep of the site.

Seriously good kit

This device just saved my bacon. Right where we had been asked to put in a pilot hole, there was a cable that was not shown on the plans. This CAT picked it up, so we gingerly started digging and sure enough it was right on the money. Just paid for itself :-)
