Leica DD220 SMART Utility Locator Solution
The DD SMART range of utility locators from Leica Detection are successors to the EZiCAT 600 and 700 series locators. There have been a number of design advances in all areas of the locator.
A modified casing has resulted in an improved ingress protection rating from IP54 to IP66. The re-designed high contrast colour display is very user-friendly and includes on-board video support. A further enhancement is the ability to add identifiers such as user/company details to the start-up screen.
From an operational point of view, the addition of 131kHz in Transmitter mode extends the locator’s capabilities where there is a requirement for improved induction or cross-coupling onto other services. Line depth in Power mode is increased from 3 metres to 5 metres.
When used with the DA220 transmitter, the DD220 SMART locator automatically searches for the correct frequency to avoid any mismatch, though the user still has the option of manually selecting the correct frequency.
The locator has a 8GB memory for the recording of alerts, warnings, GPS position and depth estimations: downloading is an easy process via Bluetooth to the DX Shield software which can then be used to provide an overview of product use and report generation.
The locator is fitted with a micro-USB port to update software, provide calibration and maintenance support, configure the product and upload data.
