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 550i 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 550i 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.
