Radiodetection SPX CAT4 Cable Avoidance Tool


Full Product Description

Used as the tool of choice by professionals around the world involved with working underground, Radiodetection's C.A.T4 Cable Avoidance Tool will help you to easily locate underground buried utilities which generate their own signal.

The C.A.T4 builds upon the established functionality of Radiodetection's older cable avoidance tools, delivering a comprehensive digital professional locator that's highly sensitive, easy to use and packed with functionality.

Multiple operating modes are included as standard with the C.A.T4 - an Avoidance mode allows you to simultaneously search for and pinpoint Genny, power and radio signals; a Genny mode detects the signals transmitted by the Genny4 (see below for more information on the Genny4); Power mode detects the electromagnetic fields generated by loaded power cables and - if selected above - the StrikeAlert facility will warn you of shallow buried utilities.

Radiodetection's C.A.T4 cable avoidance tool is made for comfortable use in any conditions - an ergonomic handle allows you to grip the tool during use, while a strong, lightweight ABS case around the instrument is rated to IP54 for use in all weather conditions. A built-in loudspeaker gives indication of detected underground utilities and can be detached from the unit and held closer to the ear when working in noisier environments.

The noises generated by the C.A.T4 are designed to alert you to the specific type of buried utility - Power and Genny signals can be easily distinguished from each other and from background noise, helping you to determine exactly where utilities are, as well as the type of underground utility detected.

All Radiodetection C.A.T4 units include Dynamic Overload Protection; when used near high levels of electrical interference (such as those found around substations and near high voltage transmission cables), the C.A.T4 will automatically filter out this interference, allowing you to keep working without worrying about wrong results or overloading your unit.

Radiodetection C.A.T4 Cable Avoidance Tool Key Features

  • Used to detect the type and location of underground buried utilities which generate a signal
  • Optional StrikeAlert mode quickly alerts you to the presence of shallow buried utilities
  • Lightweight, ABS high impact casing rated to IP54 for use in all weather conditions
  • Detachable loudspeaker - remove from the C.A.T4 in noisy environments and hold closer to your ear to pick up the signal
  • High contrast display with automatic backlight - bargraph 'tidemark' allows you to determine the location of the signal by detected strength
  • Avoidance Mode - speeds up the process of pre-dig scanning by searching for power, radio and Genny signals simultaneously with different audio signals depending on type of buried utility
  • Genny Mode - the C.A.T4 is designed to seamlessly work with the C00-7896 Genny4 signal generator to pick up on generated signals and to allow you to detect utilities which may not generate a signal
  • Power Mode - detects electromagnetic fields generated by loaded power cables
  • Sensitivity control knob
  • Dynamic Overload Protection - filters out interference caused by HV cables to ensure accurate operation
  • eCert Remote Calibration Validation - use optional C.A.T Manager PC software to test the locating circuitry of the C.A.T4 and validate the results against the original factory calibration using intenet connection to Radiodetection. When passed, you can then print a new calibration certificate for your C.A.T4
