DXL Cable Avoidance Tool

DXL Cable Avoidance Tool

The new C.Scope DXL Cable Avoidance Tool is a high performance Locator developed using the latest in advanced digital signal processing technology. It is the most modern design of Locator available and can determine the exact location AND DEPTH of buried pipes and cables immediately prior to any form of excavation work taking place, day or night.

Building on the key features of our classic Cable Avoidance Tool, the DXL has added an extra detecting mode plus greater sensitivity and improved signal interference rejection to create a Locator that will provide valuable information about the position and depth of buried pipes and cables more quickly than previously possible.

When combined with a C.Scope SGA or SGV Signal Generator and accessories, the DXL Cable Avoidance Tool becomes a versatile, all round pipe and cable locating and tracing package. Robustly made and equipped with LCD meter with automatic backlight, detachable loudspeaker and easy-to-operate fingertip controls, the C.Scope DXL Cable Avoidance Tool is the ideal tool for those needing to detect buried services quickly and with confidence.

The C.Scope DXL Cable Avoidance Tool now has four detecting modes, each with their own unique advantages:

The POWER mode is the quickest way to detect most buried electricity cables by detecting the signal created by the electrical current itself.

The RADIO mode detects re-radiated "radio" type signals that are often present on metal pipes and cables allowing their position to be determined using just the DXL alone.

The GENERATOR mode is used to detect the signal applied to a metal pipe or cable by a C.Scope SGA or SGV Signal Generator. In addition the Generator mode can be used to detect the signal being transmitted by a C.Scope Sonde for non-metallic pipe tracing. In both instances the depth of the pipe or cable or Sonde can be displayed at the press of a button.

The brand new ALLSCAN mode detects ALL frequencies of signal from the lowest of the Power signals right up to and including 33kHz. This great all-in-one mode can detect unusual frequency signals often overlooked in the conventional Power, Radio and Generator modes and can often speed up the locating process with just one sweep of the site.

The depth measurement feature allows you to determine exactly how deep pipes and cables are buried with the simple push of a button.

The DXL locator is available with Bluetooth connectivity to enable communication with mapping and data logging systems.


  • Depth Measurement
  • Combined visual response AND clear audible response
  • Visual response provides the following: Battery condition indicator, Signal strength, Mode selected
  • Digital display as well as the conventional audible response
  • Superior ‘natural' audible response rather than a digitally reproduced version
  • Excellent signal to interference ratio leaving a clear, crisp signal response
  • Provision for spare battery storage within the Cable Avoidance Tool
  • Retractable loudspeaker that you can replace if it is damaged without the need to get the unit recalibrated
  • Fully weatherproof design to IP65
  • Bluetooth Connectivity
