With all the features of the CAT4 model, the gCAT4 also includes SWING Warning, Data Acquisition, StrikeAlert and GPS tracking. The Avoidance Mode allows you to search for and locate Genny, Power and Radio signals and the power mode detects the electromagnetic fields generated by loaded power cables.
The gCAT4 has its own memory to store more than a year’s worth of key measurements and operation modes. The GPS receiver provides positional data logging every second to show where the operator was working and this information can then be exported in CSV, XLS or KML file types and used with map services such as Google Earth.
Pair this gCAT4 with a Genny4 to boost the signal and further enhance cable location to work over more distance.
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
Minimise the risk of having to delay a survey because calibration has expired. gC.A.T4+ series products provide a 30 days countdown warning to the expiry of the calibration certificate. The optional CALSafe can be set to prevent the unit from operating outside the calibration period, ensuring compliance with company policies – and the interval required between services can be customised within a 1 year period using the C.A.T Manager software.
Radiodetection C.A.Ts are designed to respond exceptionally quickly to even the smallest detectable underground signals.
Radiodetection’s research into underground signal detection has shown that the ability of an operator to identify these buried utilities is significantly reduced by careless working practices such as excessive or rapid swinging.
To further reduce utility strike risks, eC.A.T4 units are equipped with sensors to detect such incorrect usage and warn the operator with an alert that is also stored in the data log.
