Radiodetection eCAT4 - Cable Locator

1 Product information

Radiodetection eCAT4 Cable Locator

Dig safely and reduce the number of cable strikes with the eCAT4 Cable Locator. The eCAT4 includes all the features of the CAT4 model but has the added benefits of SWING warning to warn the operator of incorrect usage and store this information in the data log.

The eCAT4 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.

The 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.
