RadioDetection CAT4+ Cable Avoidance Tool with Depth Estimation and StrikeAlert ( EN31)
The RadioDetection CAT4+ is designed to safely locate buried utilities, as well as telecoms, street lighting and CAT V cable. Using the Radiodetection CAT4+ allows the user to dig more safely and find more buried utilities.
Reduce cable strikes
Coupling the unit with a genny further reduces the risks of cable strikes.
The CAT4+ retains all the features of the CAT4, with additional of depth estimation and strikealert. Depth can be estimated from either the Genny signal or Sonde. Simply press the button under the screen to display the estimated depth.
Simple to use
The unit is designed to be used with just one hand for ease of use. The on / off trigger, mode selection and sensitivity dial are all within easy reach of each other. The loud speaker is removable for use in noisy environments if required. An automatic back light provides visibility in all conditions. A simple to read bargraph allows the operator to quickly spot a peak making detection of small diameter cables possible.

Dynamic Overload Protection (DOP)
What is DOP and why is it useful?
For locating cables in areas prone to high electrical interference, such as near sub stations and under power cables, the CAT4+ uses DOP to filter out unwanted noise. This allows the user to successfully locate the cable they require almost anywhere.

Using the CAT4+ with Genny4
Using the CAT4+ in conjunction with the Genny4 (sold desperately) makes locating smaller cables, such a telecoms, easier. The Genny 4 emits dual frequencies; 33kHz for general utilities and a Small Diameter Locate frequency for smaller cables. Watch the video below to see how a CAT and Genny can be used to locate street light cabling.
