  • Rating12345

Heerbrugg, Switzerland, 18 January 2023: Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, today announced its latest solution for utility and excavation professionals. The new Leica DD175 utility locator and Leica DA175 signal transmitter complement the existing Leica DD100 series and help operators easily detect underground utilities to ensure site workers’ safety.

Locating the position of underground cables and pipes before excavation is paramount for site workers’ safety. The Leica DD175 and Leica DA175 feature an intuitive design that enhance the user experience and advance automatic controls for simplified utility detection.

The DD175 is a smart utility locator that connects to the Leica DX Field Shield/DX Manager Shield software to enable users to connect the site to the office in real time with fast and stable data transfer. The DD175’s automated pinpointing technology and clear display helps users discover buried utilities with confidence. The built-in self-check verifies that the tool is functioning properly, ensuring the dependability of the information and thus enhancing operator safety. The tool’s data-logging and GPS features allow managers to see how and where the locator is used.

The new DD175 cable locator and DA175 signal transmitter are designed for construction, civil engineering, utility and general site workers who need to clearly and intuitively understand what assets are located beneath their sites. “Our portfolio ranges from basic entry-level utility locators to sophisticated, high-end, fully featured locators,” says Federico Bertolucci, GPR Product Manager at Hexagon. “The new Leica DD175’s advanced automatic controls decrease the likelihood of human error even for less skilled professionals, enabling easier and more efficient cable and pipe locating for improved workplace safety.”
