RadioDetection gCAT4+ Cable Avoidance Tool with Depth Estimation (EN03)

The gC.A.T4+ is the standard model of the range. Using it with the Genny4 transmitter (available separately), experienced operators will be able to find more buried utilities, faster.

The gC.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 simultaneous dual-frequency signal output. Alongside the familiar 33 kHz 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.

gC.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.

StrikeAlert mode is included as standard on the gCAT4 and quickly alerts you to the presence of shallow buried utilities

The gCAT4+ also includes a number of other helpful features

  • Service due indicator: 31-day service due countdown warning on start-up
  • CALSafe: Enabled units can be set to automatically deactivate on expiry of the defined calibration interval, to help ensure compliance with individual company policies.
  • Internal GPS/GNSS: Automatically log the postion of the CAT alongside key locate parameters each second to prove work history and analyse working practices
  • Data acquisition: C.A.T Manager is a software suite designed to offer online or local analysis of usage behaviors, explore surveyed locations using Google Maps, and produce surveys and usage reports.

gCAT4+ operating modes

  • Avoidance mode: Simultaneously search for and pinpoint Genny, Power and Radio signals for rapid surveying.
  • Genny mode: Detects the signals transmitted by Genny4 (available separately) with on demand estimation of the depth of burried cables
  • Power mode: Detects the electromagnetic fields generated by loaded power cables.
  • Radio mode: Detects long-range radio signals as they travel along buried cables and pipes.
  • StrikeAlert warning: Warns of shallow buried utilities
  • SWING warning: Warns operators of incorrect usage to promote best working practices
