C.A.T4 and Genny4 Location Tools


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. 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.
