Detect More, Detect Faster

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.

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

Avoidance Mode
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.

Dig More Safely

Reduce the risk of hitting a shallow cable with the optional StrikeAlert™ warning, enhanced and optimised in the CAT4 range to reduce the instances of false warnings.

SWING™

Radiodetection C.A.Ts are designed to respond exceptionally quickly to even the smallest detectable underground signals. Radiodetection's research into underground signal detection has shown that the ability of an operator to identify these buried utilities is significantly reduced by careless working practices such as excessive or rapid swinging.

To further reduce utility strike risks, eC.A.T4 units are equipped with sensors to detect such incorrect usage and warn the operator with an alert that is also stored in the data log.

Data Logging, Analysis and Software

eC.A.T4 and gC.A.T4 series products can store over a year’s worth of the key measurements and modes of operation.

gC.A.T4 units are equipped with an internal GPS/GNSS receiver providing positional data logged every second into the C.A.T4 internal memory and showing where the operator was working

C.A.T Manager™ can be used to export log files to enable detailed data usage analysis offering multiple benefits such as identifying training and development needs, and providing independent historical records of the instrument’s use.

gC.A.T4 data logs can be exported as CSV, XLM or KML files that can be imported into map services like Google Maps® or Google Earth®.

Backed-up data on a PC gives virtually unlimited record keeping for the life of the product.

 

C.A.T Manager™ Software
C.A.T4 locators are supported with the dedicated C.A.T Manager software package. This Windows® PC program allows plant, fleet and site managers to minimise down time by performing software upgrades, reproducing calibration certificates and performing online calibrations using eCert.

To match individual preferences or intended use, C.A.T Manager can be used to disable or enable C.A.T4 features such as depth estimation and warnings. User-editable fields enable plant/fleet codes and other details to be stored on the unit, simplifying records and traceability.

CAT Manager is also used to manage Data logs produced by eC.A.T4 and gC.A.T4 models.

Data logs from individual cats are retrieved and stored on a local database. Export function allow users to review and analyse usage or to view the area surveyed on maps services as Google Earth.
