Radiodetection Cable Avoidance Tools

Radiodetection's C.A.T4 and Genny4 cable avoidance tools enable operators to find more buried utilities, faster.

Radiodetection's C.A.T4 and Genny4 cable avoidance tools enable operators to find more buried utilities, faster. These two tools are engineered to deliver a step change in cable and pipe locate capabilities, with minimal change in work practices and training requirements.

Included in the C.A.T4 range are the eC.A.T4 series products, incorporating over a year's worth of data acquisition capacity-recording key locate parameters including mode used, Genny signal detection, control settings and warning statuses-to enable managers to rapidly verify correct usage and identify training needs.

Rapid utility detection is provided with the new Avoidance Mode, which lets the operator simultaneously check an intended excavation area for all locatable signals and pinpoint located utilities in a single scan. The dynamic overload protection feature enables operators to locate even in areas of high electrical interference, such as substations or under high voltage cables.

The new Genny4 provides a new dual frequency feature. Two frequencies are simultaneously transmitted to facilitate location of small diameter cables such as telecoms and street lighting, including spurs.
