C.Scope SGV4 Signal Generator with Data Logging
|C.Scope MXL4, CXL4, DXL4, SGA4, SGV4 Manual
Key Features of SGV4 Signal Generator:
- Dual-Frequency Signal Output: SGV4 offers a simultaneous 33kHz and 131kHz signal output, enabling more efficient and accurate detection of a wide array of buried utilities without the need for direct connections.
- Versatile Signal Applications: From Direct Connection and Wraparound to Induction, SGV4 provides multiple techniques for utility detection, each serving unique scenarios and enhancing the device's overall versatility.
Take your utility detection capabilities up a notch with the SGV4 Signal Generator. Specifically designed to work in synergy with C.Scope's CXL4 or DXL4 Cable Avoidance Tools, the SGV4 provides an enhanced spectrum for detecting a multitude of underground utilities, including those as specialized as street lighting cables.
How SGV4 Transforms Utility Detection
Simultaneous Dual-Frequency: SGV4's Unique Selling Point
One of the major advantages of the SGV4 Signal Generator is its dual-frequency signal output, operating at 33kHz and 131kHz. This feature allows for the energizing and detection of a greater range of buried services, even without the need for direct connections. Utilizing either a Signal Clamp or simple induction from ground level, the SGV4 significantly improves the detection accuracy for smaller diameter or poorly earthed cables.
Three Signal Application Techniques with SGV4
The SGV4 offers three alternative methods to apply a Signal Generator signal:
Direct Connection: Best for precise tracing of individual pipes or cables, complete with depth measurements.
Wraparound: This technique is suitable when Direct Connection is inconvenient, allowing the energizing of street or car park lighting cables.
Induction: When you’re dealing with previously undetected or inaccessible underground utilities, this method can be invaluable.
Using a Signal Generator
SGV4 Features for Business Excellence
High-Power Signal Customization
With its adjustable One Watt Power Output, the SGV4 enables effective energization and tracing of deeper and less conductive utilities over extended distances. It comes with a four-position power level adjustment, giving operators complete control over power usage.
Pulsed/Continuous Signal Output in SGV4
Operators have the flexibility to switch between Pulsed and Continuous modes, making it easier to keep tracing in high-interference environments. An added audible signal output is built into the SGV4 to alert the operator when the device is functioning.
In-Built Audio Mute Control
A useful audio mute control is integrated within the SGV4 for added operational convenience.
Data Logging Capability
What sets the SGV4 apart is its full data logging capability, which can hold up to a year's worth of data for both the Locator and Signal Generator. This data can be transferred via USB to a supervisor's PC for comprehensive analysis.

Durability and Robustness: The Construction of SGV4
IP65 Standard Protection and High-Resolution Backlit Digital Display
The SGV4 is designed with a durable twin-wall construction and IP65 standard protection against dust and water. It features a high-resolution backlit LCD display that indicates various functionalities, power levels, and test results.
Versatile Accessory Tray in SGV4
The SGV4 comes with a large, detachable accessory tray, which can conveniently house not only standard accessories but also various optional extras like Signal Clamps and Signal Injectors.
Quality Assurance and Support
SGV4 Warranty and Certification
The product comes with a three-year warranty (conditions apply). It also performs an Automatic Daily Self Test (ADST) and stores these results, which can be downloaded and used for creating a Product Validation Certificate.
The SGV4 Signal Generator sets a new standard for comprehensive and reliable utility detection. Its range of features from dual-frequency signals to data logging capability makes it an indispensable tool for any serious operation. SGV4 doesn’t just complement your CXL4 or DXL4 Cable Avoidance Tools; it elevates them. With SGV4, you're taking a significant step forward in utility detection excellence.
