Leica Geosystems introduces new detection solution for utility construction

Leica DD230/220 SMART utility locators and DX Shield software

(Heerbrugg, Switzerland 17 July 2018) – Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, industry leader of measurement technology, announced today the newest solution for utility and excavation professionals - the Leica DD SMART utility locator series, signal transmitters and DX Shield software.

The Leica DD SMART utility locator series uses industry-leading digital signal processing to automatically detect utilities and underground assets deeper, faster and more accurately. New technology from DX Shield software records information to manage site activities and map buried utilities.

“We have used Leica DD SMART locators in conjunction with the DX Manager Shield software to provide reports showing an overview of where and when the locators have been used. This has allowed us to gain a better understanding of system use and make improvements where necessary,” said Tim Swan, senior engineer at Costain, a technology-based engineering solutions company in the United Kingdom.

A scalable single-source platform

The new SMART utility locator solution allows users to collect, transfer and access data remotely to a hosted service for multiple users, across multiple sites. The DD230/220 SMART utility locators use on-board locate alerts, video support and automatic locate process to reduce time scanning utilities and to minimise utility damage. The DD SMART utility locators are scalable and designed with the latest Bluetooth technology, providing a wire-free connection to field controllers and mobile phone devices.

Understand site activity and utility locator use in greater detail

DX Shield software solution allows users to gain a better understanding of task performance and site complexities with easy-to-use reports, activity visualisation, and locator fleet overview. A cloud-hosted platform transfers data directly to the field to provide a fast and convenient view of the product use, reducing utility strikes and saving direct repair costs and project downtime.

“We developed the new DD SMART utility locator series with the latest Digital Signal Processing technology so users can identify the smallest utility signals, even in congested areas, in an intuitive and automated way. Paired with DX Shield software solution, users of DD SMART utility locators have an overview of where, when and how their detection tools have been used, demonstrating compliance, managing competence, and helping users to protect their staff, assets and reputation,” said Andrew Allen, product manager at Leica Geosystems.
