- GENNY4 (includes direct connection leads and earth stake)
The Genny4’s patented simultaneous dual-frequency signal output facilitates location of small diameter cables such as telecoms and street lighting, including spurs. The power boost function in Genny4 enables the locate signal to travel further and deeper, and couple onto utilities more easily.
The CAT4 Avoidance Mode lets the operator check an intended excavation area for Power, Radio and Genny4 signals, and pinpoint located utilities, in a single scan. The bargraph ‘tidemark’ enables the user to quickly spot and zero-in on a buried conductor.
The Genny4 provides a class-first simultaneous dual-frequency signal output. Alongside the familiar 33kHz signal for general purpose locates, the Genny4 transmits a specialised Small Diameter Locate frequency which facilitates location of utilities such as telecoms and street lighting, including spurs. For difficult locates, the Signal Boost function enables the Genny4 signals to travel further and deeper, and couple onto utilities more easily. CAT4’s Dynamic Overload Protection feature automatically filters out high levels of interference, allowing operators to continue working even in electrically noisy areas such as substations and under high-voltage cables – and requires no input from the operator.
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.
Includes direct connection leads and earth stake.
Detect more, detect faster!
In an ever more regulated industry, the next generation of Cable Avoidance Tools, CAT4 and Genny4, build on over 30 years of cable avoidance expertise to enable operators to find more buried utilities, faster.
Two innovative tools, engineered to deliver a step change in capabilities with minimal change in work practices or training requirements.
Dig more safely!
As a safety critical tool, CAT4 and Genny4 offer a number of features designed to support safe working and help to drive utility strike rates down.
eCAT4 series units feature on-board data acquisition to aid in identifying training needs, while the SWING warning alerts the operator to incorrect usage patterns, encouraging corrective action. All CAT4 units are equipped with Radiodetection’s proprietary eCert technology, which provides a comprehensive assessment of the unit’s hardware and software using an internet connection to Radiodetection,1 and can be used to extend the validity of the CAT4’s calibration certificate on-demand.
Straightforward operation and introduction
CAT4 and Genny4 retain the familiar CAT operating interface first introduced by Radiodetection in the mid-1980s and have been designed for full reverse-compatibility. For example, all Genny3 accessories are compatible with Genny4. Radiodetection offers comprehensive training options for operators, managers and trainers to promote best working practises and supports management of those responsible for Cable Avoidance.
