  • Genny mode: Detects the signals transmitted by Genny4 (available separately)
  • 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.
  • SWING warning: Alerts the user to improper or carless use. Recorded in instrument memory

  • CALSafe: Enables units to be deactivated after calibration has expired
  • Bluetooth Low Energy: Allows seamless transfer of usage data to C.A.T Manager Online
  • GPS / GNSS: Adds GPS location to stored data

Strike alert and CALsafe as standard

Previously an option on the other models, Strike Alert and CALSafe are standard on the gCAT4. Strike Alert furtther reduces the chance of cable strikes by providing the user a visual warning as to shallow buried utilities that may be struck easily with minimal digging. CALSafe enables the strictest of compliance by locking the unit out once the calibration has expired. The unit must then be calibrated before use is enabled again.

See and record everything

Low energy Bluetooth allows for near real time monitoring of the operators performance, when used in conjunction with CAT Manager Online. With GPS tagging, location is also recorded for complete transparency

The gCat4 can be used in areas with high electrical interface thanks to it Dynamic Overload Protect which filters out unwanted electrical noise. For locating small diameter cables, the gCAT4 can be used with the Genny 4 (sold separately). The Genny 4 generates 3 signal types..

  • 33 kHz: Ideal for locating general purpose utilizes
  • Small Diameter Locate: Designed for locating telecoms and street lighting and CATV cables
  • Boost mode: Increases signal strength by 10 times for difficult locates

The Genny 4 is available separately or as part of the Electricians Bag Pack and Electricians Accessory pack.
