Cable detectors

Robust, easy-to-use cable locators

The leica Digicat 500i Series cable locators feature advanced Automatic Controls making the Digicat easy-to-use, requiring minimal user experience.

Avoiding underground cables and pipes is a major concern on construction sites. Therefore detecting the position of buried cables and pipes before excavation work can help prevent operator injury, asset damage risks and any subsequent costs. The robust Leica Digicat 500i Series cable locators are engineered for ease-of-use, enabling users to simply press the trigger and start locating.

Unmatched ease-of-use

With Automatic Pinpointing there is no need for you to manually adjust the sensitivity of your Digicat cable locator ensuring you’re using the optimum sensitivity for the environment you are detecting the underground utilities in. Reducing the likelihood of human error and enabling easier and more efficient cable and pipe locating. Ultimately saving you time and money.

Improved accuracy and application scope

The Leica Digicat 500i Series cable locators help you perform a wide range of cable and pipe avoidance or detection applications and should be used in conjunction with a Digitex 100t or 300t signal transmitter and/or the Digisystem accessories, for improved accuracy and range of applications.

Estimating the depth of the underground infrastructure on your construction site improves utility locating accuracy and data range.

Depth estimation can be obtained by using a Digicat 550i cable locator and a Digitex 100t or 300t signal transmitter.

There are two intelligent cable locators in this range that come with a wide range or beneficial features:

Leica Digitex i-Series Signal Transmitters
Locate more underground cables and pipes

The Leica Digitex i-Series signal transmitters apply a signal onto underground cables or pipes that may not carry a detectable signal. The Leica Digicat i-Series cable locator can then be used to locate the signal from the Leica Digitex signal transmitter.

The Digitex i-Series signal transmitters are compact, robust and easy-to-use. The have been designed in conjunction with the Digicat i-Series cable locators to easily and accurately avoid, trace or locate buried cables and pipes.

Improved utility detection

These intelligent signal transmitters can be used:
  • To improve utility detection in areas of high signal interference
  • Enables depth estimation, when using a depth enabled cable locator
  • Enables to locating of non-conductive utilities by applying a detectable signal onto underground utilities. The signal can then be traced using a Leica Digicat cable locator. Using the Leica Digitex signal transmitters this way will help you locate around 50% more buried cables or pipes than using a Digicat cable locator alone.
  • Use a range of accessories to locate a range of utilities
Leica Digitex 100t signal transmitter
1 Watt signal transmitter for use before excavation work.
Leica Digitex 300t signal transmitter
3 Watt signal transmitter ideal if you are frequently locating underground utilities in areas with high signal interference, or larger excavation areas.
