C.A.T. 3+ with Strike Alert - Cable Locator

Buried cables represent a major hazard to excavations. The C.A.T 3+ is designed to locate these services so that they can be avoided. The C.A.T 3+ can detect signals naturally radiating from metallic services or the Genny can be used to apply a distinctive signal that the C.A.T 3+ can detect. The CAT 3+ has the added benefit of Active Depth feature with a ± 10%accuracy.

Although work practices and guidelines insist power cables are buried below a certain depth, a common cause of cable strike is shallow cables. The StrikeAlert feature alerts the user to shallow power cables by flashing the ALERT icon on the display of the C.A.T 3+.

The C.A.T and Genny has become the industry standard pipe and cable avoidance tool, recognised as the leader providing performance, ruggedness and reliability, together with affordability and low cost of ownership.
