Cat4 & Genny

Information

  • 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 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.
  • C.A.T4’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
  • 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. eC.A.T4™ 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 C.A.T4 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, and can be used to extend the validity of the C.A.T4’s calibration certificate on-demand. This facility is made possible through the purchase of an eCert™ used in conjunction with the CAT manager software.
  • StrikeAlert™ (optional)
    Minimise the risk of hitting a shallow cable with the optional StrikeAlert™ which has been enhanced and optimised to reduce the instances of false warnings.
  • CAT manager software is a Windows® PC program that allows plant, fleet and site managers to minimise down time by performing software upgrades, sending a service request, reproducing calibration certificates and compiling/editing user information

FEATURES

  • High visibility display with backlight helps to minimise the possibility of misreading critical information from the unit, providing optimum visibility in all light conditions
  • Compatible with the CAT3 and Genny3 range of accessories
  • Note: All CAT4 and Genny4 products are Network Rail approved.
