Power Mode : Identifies buried electricity cables by detecting the main frequency signal travelling along the cable itself, when current is being drawn
Radio Mode :Detects re-radiated ‘radio’ type signals that are often present on metal pipes & cables.
Generator Mode : is used to detect the 33+131khz signal applied to a metallic pipe or cable by SGV4 signal generator and is also used for detecting the signal from a C.Scope sonde or Stanlay traceable duct rodder when tracing in non metallic pipe such as sewers, drains or telecom cable ducts.
All Scan Mode : Detects all frequencies of signal from the lowest of power signals right up to and including 33 kHz. This mode can detect unusual signals appearing in the frequency gaps between conventional power, radio and generator modes and is invaluable as a ‘final check’ before excavation work begins
DEPTH MEASUREMENT : When used with an SGV4 signal generator, the depth of buried pipes, cables and sondes can be indicated at the push of a button
LCD Displays Important Operating Parameters Such as :
* Signal strength.
* Confirmation of selected mode.
* Battery condition.
* Frequency (in T Mode)
* Depth (in T Mode & when selected).
* Signal Current (when selected)
SENSITIVITY CONTROL : to ensure very precise locating.
DETACHABLE LOUDSPEAKER : to allow operation of instrument in noisy environments.
AUTOMATIC DAILY SELF TEST : self test is performed to checks teo internal ariels and all the operating mode are fit for usage
BUILT in DUAL BATTERY PACK : Battery Compartment Contains the USB Socket allowing the user to print out a system validation certificate when required.
DYNAMIC SWING SENSOR : The locator should held at 900 .It`s dynamic swing sensor alert you with a tone sound
ALARM ZONETM : The XL4 Locator has a automatic depth measurement feature to alert the user to shallow pipes or cables in depth range upto 0.3m
PEAK HOLD : When locator reaches its peak position, a single 'Peak Hold' line to show on the bargraph for two second to reach you to correct position
DATA LOGGING: The DLX4 and CXL4 have full data logging capability. This can be conveniently transferred at any time for analysis.
DATA LOG TRANSFER VIA USB:Data from the Data Logging versions of the CXL4 and DXL4 can be transferred at any time to a PC for analysis, all XL4 locating receiver have USB data connection socket.
DATA LOG TRANSFER VIA BLUETOOTHTM:The DXL4 DBG model has the additional features of Bluetooth to download data wirelessly onto C.Scope relay Smart Phone App installed on any android Smart Phone.
DATA LOG TRANSFER VIA GPS:In- built GPS models also allow a record to be kept of exactly where the Cable Avoidance Tools have been used that can then be viewed in partnership with Google EarthTM or Google MapTM. Additionally, the Cable Avoidance Tool may be paired to third-party GPS survey equipment, via the locators in-built BluetoothTM facilitating ‘one-pass’ underground utility surveys to be undertaken.
The SGV4 offers three alternative ways to apply a Signal Generator signal:
DIRECT CONNECTION: allows specific pipes or cables to be individually traced, identified and their depths measured. The use of Signal Clamps, Signal Injectors and Direct Connection leads make this mode the most effective method for pinpointing pipes and cables.
INDUCTIVE SIGNAL CLAMP (OPTIONAL): If it is difficult or inconvenient to use Direct Connection, then the signal clamp can be utilized to successfully energize an armored optical fiber cable, street lighting cable etc.
INDUCTION: allows the Signal Generator to induce a detectable and traceable signal to previously unknown, undetected or inaccessible underground metal pipes or cables without any direct connection. This is also referred to as a Blind Search and significantly increases capability to locate or trace buried services.
POWER OUTPUT: The SGV4 has a four position power level adjustment & SGA4 has a two level power output, so that the user can control how much power to use and when.
LOUDSPEAKER: The SGV/A4 has a clear audible signal output to indicate when it is in operation. There is also the facility to mute the audio if required.
PULSED OR CONTINUOUS SIGNAL OUTPUT: The SGV4 offer the choice of a Pulsed or Continuous signal output enabling operators to switch to the Pulsed Mode in high interference situations and keep on tracing.
LCD CLEAR DIGITAL DISPLAY: The SGV4 has a large, clear and easy-to-read backlit LCD mounted behind a tough protective polycarbonate lens. The display indicates clear information about the functions selected, the power level being used and battery condition.
ACCESSORY TRAY: The SGV4 Signal Generator has a large detachable accessory tray as its base. It can house all of the standard accessories (Direct Connection Leads, Earth Stake, Connection Magnets, 10m Auxiliary Earth Lead) and the Instruction Manual and also many of the optional extras such as Signal Clamps, Sondes and Signal Injectors
ROBUST & DURABLE CONSTRUCTION: The SGV4’s twin wall construction is robust and durable. It also provides IP65 standard protection against dust and water ingress.
CALIBRATION: The SGV4 does not require periodic re-calibration, helping to significantly reduce running costs and downtime
DATA LOGGING: The SGV4 Signal Generator will automatically record and store how when and for how long the instrument has been operated, Twelve months of data can be stored before being overwritten. It is therefore possible to keep a full audit trail of the activity of the signal generator and its functionality. Data can be transferred to a PC using USB socket built in the signal generator.
AUTOMATIC DAILY SELF TEST (Available on SGV4): The signal generator will undertake automatic daily self test and prior first use of every single day of operation and will provide Pass / Fail Indication on the LCD display.
