Leica Geosystems DD130 Utility Locator - Avoid Underground Cables and Pipes

Detecting buried cables and pipes before excavation work can help prevent operator injury, asset damage and any subsequent costs. Use the DD120 or DD130 cable locators in conjunction with a DA220 or DA230 signal transmitter or range of accessories to achieve improved accuracy and application scope.

The DD100 range of utility locators from Leica Detection incorporates a number of features designed to provide ease-of-use for those with minimal user experience.

A large visual display and advance automatic controls are housed in an IP54-rated enclosure, allowing the user to concentrate on the correct survey technique. The menu includes a Good-to-Go health check and start up test to confirm the correct functioning of the locator.

The DD130 operates in Power, Radio and Automatic modes, along with frequencies of 512Hz, 640Hz, 8kHz and 33kHz when used with the DA230 transmitter.

Line depth range is 3 metres and 10 metres for sonde when used with the DA220 transmitter.

Recording and downloading of alerts, warnings, GPS position and depth estimations is an easy process via Bluetooth: the DX Shield software can be used to provide an overview of product use and report generation.
