The C.Scope SGV2 is a digital Signal Generator with a visual display that is designed to be used with C. Scopes CXL2 and DXL2 Cable Avoidance Tools. The combined use of these products set a new benchmark in excavating safety as well as still delivering all the benefits and familiar operating practices associated with the original product range.

The C.Scope SGV2 Signal Generator is designed for use alongside a CXL2 or DXL2 Cable Avoidance Tool. It enables significantly more underground utilities to be detected including street lighting cables. The SGV2 Signal Generator features a new combined 33+131kHz signal further increasing the number of buried services that can be energised and detected.

The SGV2 has a class leading One watt Power output which helps to get a detectable signal onto deeper and less conducting pipes and cables for complex locate tasks and provides longer distance tracing capability. It also features aFOUR position power level adjustment so the operator has total control of how much power is in use and when.

The SGV2 Signal Generator has a multi-segment Liquid Crystal Display that provides clear information about the functions selected. The display also shows the all important battery condition so the operator knows how much battery life is available.

A Pulsed or Continuous signal output allows operators to switch to the Pulsed Mode at the push of a button in high interference situations and keep on tracing. The SGV2 has a clear audible signal output to indicate when it is in operation. A useful in-built audio mute control is also included.

Using the SGV2 with the CXL2 or DXL2 Cable Avoidance Tools maximises the full performance capabilities of the new products and provides a significant step forward in the quest to reduce the day-to-day risk of cable strikes.

C.Scope provide a comprehensive training course including certification for the use of all our products.
