Leica has launched its new xf-Series cable locators and transmitters
Leica Geosystems has launched the latest editions to the Digisystem product range: the Leica Digicat xf-Series.

With Leica Geosystems’ new xf-Series cable locators and transmitters, users are said to be able to accurately detect and trace utilities faster and over a greater distance.

The Leica Digicat xf-Series is said by the Swiss firm to have been specifically designed with long distance tracing in mind. The ability to trace transmitter frequencies of 512Hz and 640Hz provides users with a greater tracing range as well as the ability to locate sewer-camera inspection systems. All new models are said by Leica to represent the latest design in cable technology. With modern Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and intelligent software, the locators, says Leica, continue to make light work of ground surveys.

All new models of the Leica Digicat xf-Series are said to make locating underground cables and pipes a simple and efficient task, increasing the operator’s productivity. The Digicat 550i xf and 650i xf offer users the added benefit of depth estimation.

The Digicat 600i xf and 650i xf locators have the added benefit of an internal 32MB memory and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Both models are said to integrate seamlessly with mobile mapping technology to log survey data, in addition to enabling wireless Bluetooth data transfer.

The newly developed Leica Digitex xf signal transmitters deliver a higher power output than previous models with the addition of extra low tracing frequencies. This improved performance is said by Leica to allow users to trace services over a greater distance, improve service detection in areas of high signal interference and to improve depth estimation when using a depth locator.
