Leica Digicat 550i
Makes cable avoidance easier and safer
With the Leica Digisystem users can detect buried utilities with ease. Digisystem has been specifically designed to reduce human error and to increase site safety with its wealth of intelligent and unique features. The Digicat’s intelligent software interprets the signal data and provides the operator with an audible and visual response to the location and direction of buried utilities.
The Leica Digicat 550i - Overview
Auto Mode combines the benefi t of simultaneous detection in Power and Radio modes and helps to confi rm the presence of services upon initial site occupation making cable detection easier and safer!
Traces signals originating from distant radio transmitters. These signals penetrate the ground and are reradiated by buried conductive cables and pipes.
Power Mode (Default Mode)
Locates power signals radiated by energised cables which pose the most signifi cant risk to excavation teams.
Generator Modes (8 and 33 kHz)
Locates a specifi c signal from the Digitex 8/33 or the Digimouse, enabling the most diffi cult of services to be located or identified.
What is a Digisystem and why do I need one?
With the Leica Digisystem users can detect buried utilities with ease. Digisystem has been specifically designed to reduce human error and to increase site safety with its wealth of intelligent and unique features.
The Leica Digisystem is comprised of:
- Digicat 550i Service Locator
- Digitex 8/33 Signal Transmitter
- Digitrace Service Tracer and additional accessories
How does Digisystem locate?
The Digicat 550i locates buried conductive services by receiving electromagnetic signals which radiate from them.
The Digicat’s intelligent software interprets the signal data and provides the operator with an audible and visual response to the location and direction of buried utilities. The operator can mark the ground or use a GIS mapping device* to note the location, providing the excavation team with clear indications of utility positions.
Digicat Intelligent Features
The Digicat 550i features utility depth indication, when used in conjunction with the Digitex 8/33 signal generator or Digimouse in 8 or 33 kHz modes. With a single press of the button operators are provided with the approximate depth of the buried utility.
Buried utilities close to the surface pose a signifi cant safety risk to site works. The new Hazard Zone function provides an additional warning to the close proximity of buried services, alerting users to the immediate danger.
The Digicat 550i can be purchased with the added benefit of Bluetooth wireless connectivity. It will allow the Digicat to integrate seamlessly with mobile mapping technology to log survey data.
Enhanced Sonde Detection
Features a numeric signal strength readout, specifically designed for easy sonde location. The highest number displayed indicates the exact position of the Digimouse beneath the ground.
Service Due Indicator
Supporting customer planned maintenance schedules or quality systems, by displaying a wrench icon after 12 months.
Maintains the highest peak reading obtained on the signal strength indicator for a period of time, allowing the operator to swiftly and accurately pinpoint the service position.
