Detect more, detect faster
The C.A.T4 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 (optional) provides a simultaneous dual-frequency signal output. Alongside the familiar 33 kHz 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 SignalBoost function enables the Genny4 signals to travel further and deeper, and couple onto utilities more easily.
C.A.T4’s Dynamic Overload Protection feature automatically filters out high levels of interference, allowingoperators to continue working even in electrically noisy areas such as substations and under high-voltage cables – and requires no input from the operator.
Dig more safely
As a safety critical tool, C.A.T4 and Genny4 offer a number of features designed to support safe working and help to drive utility strike rates down.
StrikeAlert™ (optional) warns the operator of shallow buried utilities, while the SWING™ warning alerts of incorrect usage patterns, encouraging corrective action.
eC.A.T4® and gC.A.T4™ models feature on-board data acquisition, logging key locate parameters every second to aid in identifying training needs.
The gC.A.T4 range incorporates an internal GPS/GNSS receiver which adds positional data to log records showing not only how the operator was working, but also where the C.A.T was being used.
All C.A.T4 units are equipped with Radiodetecti
