Mapping of Underground Utilities
As built maps of utilities are made in reference to specific points, which become null and void as the civic layout changes. Most times, such maps do not even exist.
The utilities are often confronted with the task of ensuring expansion of buried services, without knowing the locations or routes of their utility assets. The contractor is bestowed the responsibility to execute the work of new installation of cables or pipes or even over ground structures such as fly over’s, freeways or buildings without damaging existing buried cable and pipe utility services.
The task faced by the contractor (or the user i.e the utility itself) is applicable to all types of utilities and especially buried utilities such as water pipes, sewer pipes, power cables etc. The onus of avoidance of buried utilities is of the contractor.
Many a contractor recognize that they are faced with the task of mapping
Why is datalogging important in buried pipe & cable locators.
While the cable pipe detector such as the CSCOPE DXL2 cable avoidance tool are thoroughbred professional tools for detecting cables & pipes
which are built to perform, if there is a cable cut, the subject will come down to :
1. Was the cable avoidance tool used at all before the digging was initiated.
2. The second question would be - If yes, which modes was it utilized in ; i.e was only the power mode utilized for detecting energized power cables, or was the all scan mode used to detect all utilities in one sweep.
3. Third question, were the right gain settings utilized.
While the use of the product is child's play for an experienced operator, it is the first chapter of a boo for a new or inexperienced or untrained operator.
Data logging allows the supervisor or the manager to know :
Whether the equipment was utilized at all.
The civic layout of India based on the growing need for housing and roads has changed beyond recognition. As a result As-built maps of underground utility assets, if existing , have been rendered redundant and cannot be used for reference for presence of buried utility assets.
Jcb Excavators or manual labour at work in the country are digging in the blind at most times, at the peril of significant safety concerns of digging directly into live high voltage cables. Such cuts of buried cables can lead to , in order of priority , fatality to the person excavating and serious losses to the company who has taken the work contract. Not to mention the relative inconvenience to the citizens.
The underground space is a jungle of energised power cables, dead power cables, water pipes, jelly filled telephone cables and optical fiber cables. The detection of these assets is
