MXL4 Pipe & Cable Locator

MXL4 Pipe and Cable Locator

The MXL4 Precision Pipe & Cable Locator is a high performance multi-frequency cable locating equipment for locating buried cables or pipes.

·       The C.SCOPE MXL4 Multi frequency pipe & cable locator will determine the exact position of Buried metallic pipes and cables including electricity cables / power cables, signaling cables etc.

·       In addition is used for long distance tracing and utility identification of telecom OFC cables, oil & gas pipes.

·       The MXL4 cable & pipe detector can be used to detect buried utility services immediately prior to any form of excavation work taking place.

When used in conjunction with the MXT4 transmitter, the equipment becomes a versatile pipe & cable route locating system for route tracing of underground utility services.

Multiple Frequency Options: of 512Hz, 640Hz, 8kHz, 33kHz, 131kHz, Dual Combined frequency "CF" 33+131Khz” will allow the operator select the frequency suitable for that particular scenario and therefore is the tool for complex buried cable pipe locating jobs including locating the smaller dia buried cables such as telecom & sheathed fiber optical & lighting spurs.

The MXL4 pipe and cable locating equipment is provided as a GPS enable pipe cable locator in the model option of the MXL4DBG option with in-built Data Logging, Bluetooth™ connectivity and GPS logging.

Operating Modes: The MXL4 has 4 modes of operation P: Power, R: Radio, G: Generator A: All Scan Mode for locating buried metallic cables and pipes.

The MXL4 also contain a Signal Current measurement mode to differentiate between the buried utility being route traced and other buried utility services in congested metro environments.

Eliminates Operator Error: The equipment range makes locating really simple and combined with unique features such as Automatic Daily Self-TestSwing warning etc., lets the operator work with confidence and are specifically designed to be used by operators in ALL site conditions and in all working environments to ensure position of buried pipes and cables is pinpointed before each and every excavation. 

C.Scope Cable locators are the most rugged equipment in the industry - water proof, dust proof, impact rated with IP65 Environmental rating ensuring a long product life. The equipment is fully digital and does not require Recalibration. 

The MXL4 Cable & Pipe Locating kit is a high performance equipment for telecom and oil/gas utility environments. Built to last.

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. ...
When is a ground penetrating radar beneficial in locating of underground pipes & cable utilities ?
The task of Locating underground utilities can be bifurcated into two deliverable: 1.Detection of underground utilities 2.Mapping of underground utilities If we take“a”this can be further subdivided into: 1. Detection of metallic cables & pipes, whether energized current carrying utilities or non energized utilities such as signaling cables, metallic pipes etc. 2. Detection of DI pipes, metallic manholes etc. 3. Non metallic HDPE telecom pipes, fiberglass manholes, etc. Underground cable & pipe utility locating requires the use a combination of various equipment’s and techniques which need to be chosen based on desired deliverables and then correctly employed to obtain the desired results. If the answer is “i”, an operator with basic training on usage of the ever dependable CSCOPE DXL2 Cable avoidance tool or CAT33XD Cable avoidance tool, can do the job blindfolded. If the answer is “ii”, an additional metal detector &/or magnetic locator is required. If the answer is “iii”. The use of a ...
Stop Before You Dig
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 ...
