Every year site workers are injured due to inadvertently striking buried
utilities such as electricity cables or gas pipelines. Obtaining accurate information about the location of buried utilities has never been more essential to protect employees and equipment during any excavation
Every year site workers are injured due to inadvertently striking buried utilities such as electricity cables or gas pipelines. Obtaining accurate information about the location of buried utilities has never been more essential to protect employees and equipment during any excavation project.
Local legislation normally prescribes the use of a locating device before any kind of excavation takes place. It makes perfect sense to search for, trace and mark all services before digging commences. With the Leica Digisystem users can detect buried utilities with ease. Digisystem has been specifically designed to reduce human error and to increase site safety with its wealth of intelligent and unique features.

How does the Digisystem locate?
The Digicat 500i & 550i locate buried conductive services by receiving electromagnetic signals which radiate from them. The Digicat’s intelligent software interprets the signal data and provides the operator with an audible and visual response to the location and direction of buried utilities. The operator can mark the ground or use a GIS mapping device* to note the location, providing the excavation team with clear indications of utility positions.
