Leica DSX

Product Highlights

Utility Detection Radar (GPR)

Available in two packages:

Starter Package

The DSX Starter package is for construction professionals looking to locate utilities on job sites the easy way.

The on-board DXplore software helps new users learn how to prospect with GPR and read the results.

Surveyor Package

The DSX Surveyor package includes the DXplore Survey software add-on, which enables the operator to combine GPR data with GNSS or TPS coordinates.

An integrated GPS antenna is required.

Choose the Survey Package below to reveal the option to add the FLX100 DSX Kit, which comes with all the mounts and cables needed to integrate the FLX100 with the DSX and hit the ground running.

DSX Demo

For underground utility avoidance, repair and maintenance tasks, the Leica DSX utility detection solution provides an easy to use GPR solution featuring DXplore, an intuitive onboard software interface that guides operators through the process of visualizing utilities and generating a 3D utility map.

This out-of-the-box ease of use makes the DSX an ideal choice for heavy equipment operators looking to stake out underground utilities before digging starts, but that doesn't mean that the DSX is limited to utility avoidance.

The Survey Package (and optional FLX100 Smart Antenna) upgrades DXplore to combine GPR data with GPS or TPS coordinates to create geo-located underground utility maps that are synched with a coordinate system for use by construction management platforms or CAD.

Reliable Detection Results

  • Detect underground utilities in high resolution to mark out reliable avoidance zones.
  • Verify specific utility locations obtained from existing maps, DigSafe, or from a first pass using a cable locator. 
  • Import point-of-interest aspects as well as utility records to help you make better decisions.

Ease of Use

  • Ensure smooth and accurate underground utility detection without expert knowledge.
  • Complete utility detection and mapping in just a few steps through intuitive user interface.
  • Scan anywhere and at any time, even in narrow areas and under severe conditions.

Instant 2D/3D Utility Map

  • Save time on site by mapping underground utilities in just minutes.
  • Export utilities in CAD or BIM-ready formats for future use on site or in the office.
  • Create customizable, professional deliverables.

Integrated Solution

  • Offers a complete workflow from data acquisition to excavation.
  • Add DXplore Survey to generate utility maps compatible with coordinate reference systems.
