The C.A.T4 digital platform delivers highly refined locate capabilities, specifically designed to help the operator find more buried utilities. The C.A.T4 Avoidance Mode™ lets the operator check an intended excavation area for Power, Radio and Genny signals, and pinpoint located utilities in a single scan. Features such as the bargraph ‘tidemark’ enable an operator to quickly spot a peak response and zero-in on a buried conductor.
The Genny4 Signal Generator provides simultaneous dual-frequency locate signal output. Alongside the familiar 33kHz locate signal for general purpose locates, the Genny4 transmits a second higher frequency designed to facilitate location of small diameter cables such as telecoms and street lighting, including spurs. For tricky locates, the power boost function enables the locate signal to travel further and deeper, and couple onto utilities more easily.
Dig More Safely
Radiodetection’s proprietary StrikeAlert™ warning, warns of shallow buried utilities.
The C.A.T4 guides users towards better and safer working practices through its SWING™ Rate detector and Service Due date warning.
C.A.T4 is a safety-critical precision instrument and the optional 30-day countdown to the Service Due date, CALSafe™ and innovative eCert™ on-line system calibration validation capabilities are designed to reinforce company and recommended service policies.
Data Logging and Analysis
eC.A.T4 and gC.A.T4 models provide data acquisition capabilities, allowing Plant Supervisors to administer their fleet more safely and effectively by providing comprehensive logs of C.A.T4 usage for analysis and personnel development.
gC.A.T4 models are equipped with a built-in GPS/GNSS receiver to show where the CATs were used. CSV, XLS or KML files can be easily exported to map services such as Google Earth.
Network Rail Use
The C.A.T4 and eC.A.T4 models, the Genny4 Signal Generator, and their accessories are approved for use on the UK’s national rail infrastructure, managed by Network Rail.
C.A.T4 eC.A.T4 and Genny4 are accepted for use on Network Rail infrastructure within the defined scope of acceptance and any specific conditions in the certificate. They must be maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
C.A.T4 and Genny4 are compatible with all C.A.T3 and Genny3 accessories.
Small Cable Locate - Dual-frequency locate
Simultaneous dual frequency and simple locating methods assist C.A.T4 and Genny4 users to locate Small Diameter cable such as telecom twisted pairs, CATV feeds, spurs and drop-offs which have historically been hard to find and are a common strike risk
Dynamic Overload Protection
Radiodetection’s unique digital signal processing capabilities equips the C.A.T4 with the ability to reject electrical interference. Dynamic Overload Protection gives C.A.T4 series products the ability to continue operating in electrically challenging areas, such as near substations and under power cables, where other locators’ detection circuitry may be overloaded and no longer function.
Sweep an area using Power, Radio and Genny signals simultaneously, saving time. C.A.T4 lets operators control the sensitivity of each mode/signal, enabling buried utilities to be pinpointed in a single pass, while Real Sound provides audio feedback derived directly from the utility located, easing identification to maximise speed whilst maintaining safety.
Genny4 Signal Boost
The Genny4 offers, alongside its standard power mode, a Signal Boost feature which increases the output signal by up to 10 times allowing you to locate over extra distance and depth.
High Visibility Display with Backlight
The C.A.T4’s high visibility display helps to minimise the possibility of misreading critical information from the unit. The high contrast and automatic backlight illumination provide optimum visibility in all light conditions.
