Leica Geosystems upgrades DIGICAT 200, Buried Service Locator now available in both depth formats

Increasing awareness of operator health and safety responsibilities and the reinstatement costs to accidentally damaged buried services is driving the demand for higher standards of equipment performance and reliability in ever more crowded situations. Leica DigiCatTM 200 has been introduced in 2005 to the Leica DigiSystem family to meet this demand. The upgraded new model provides - in cooperation with the Leica DigiTex 8/33 signal generator operating in 33 KHz mode - the real depth and location of all services. Leica DigiCatTM 200 enables reliable plan position pinpointing and depth estimation to 3m or 10 ft and an accuracy of approx. ± 10%, and gives full 3D location of buried services.

Minimise human errors!

When used as a safety tool, locating hazardous and life threatening buried services, operator error is a real threat to safe operation. Leica DIGICAT 200 available from Merlin Lazer Ltd automatically starts in the power mode and sets maximum detection sensitivity for a “Safety first” approach.

On-site flexibility
The success of active signal tracing, using Leica DIGICAT 200 in conjunction with Leica DigiTex Transmitter depends on variable site conditions such as external interference signals - traffic loops or tracing in congested areas - with many buried services. Leica DigiCatTM 200 can be set to trace either an 8 or 33 KHZ tracing signal and gets the best results for the specific site conditions.
Working in busy construction sites presents a personal hazard to construction workers who must use both their eyes and ears to ensure personal safety. Leica DigiCatTM 200 has both visual and audio indicators to provide the safest indication to the operator when working in adverse conditions.

Service detection and avoidance
As part of a safe system of work for general construction activities, detection and avoidance of existing buried services form an essential step before excavation can begin in a safe manner. The Leica DIGICAT 200 passive signal POWER and RADIO modes provide a reliable detection means for buried services naturally carrying these signals.
